TEC Transnational hit 50th 'Rev C' success in 2012

Posted 30 July 2012 · Add Comment

Advanced quality management company TEC Transnational has just celebrated its 50th client through the AS/EN9100:2009 (Rev C) process.

This has enabled these companies to improve their business processes and deliver more efficiently and effectively for their customers.
TEC has a unique approach to ‘visual’ quality systems and successes in guiding both large and small companies through to AS/EN9100 “Rev C” certifications. Usually this quality standard requires reams of paperwork, much of which will often simply sit on a shelf once the accreditation has been granted.
TEC, working with internal teams, uses high level visual aids to explain the process, simplify procedures and actively manage effectiveness. For example, working with Meggitt plants in the UK and USA eliminated hundreds of narrative procedures down to 10 key processes – with each process mapped onto just four pages. This resulted in a more efficient and streamlined business model and a live and thriving quality management system.
The TEC approach is to identify and map all business processes, along with their sequences and interactions.  Use is made of Turtle diagrams to impose controlled conditions for these identified processes.
The key activities of every process are mapped in line with AS/EN9100 requirements. A new, succinct and upgraded quality manual is produced for each company, which acts as the ‘hub’ of the upgraded quality management system.
As part of the process, TEC identifies skills gaps and assesses the use of lean enterprise tools – then provides practical workshops and coaching to ensure competency.  Blended learning is synchronized with system implementation so that newly acquired skills can be used immediately – achieving excellence through accelerated learning.
Dr David Scrimshire, director of TEC Transnational, said: “Rev C delivers real business benefits for companies, achieving efficiencies and improving their relationships with their customers. However it is an arduous, and can be a very high risk and complex, process."

Dave Pitts, TEC manager of Global Systems added: “TEC Transnational is here to support companies small and large through the process, and bring a measurable change and improvement to their systems and processes. I am proud that TEC has been able to work with 50 sites in the last six months alone, and look forward to spreading the benefits of “Rev C” in the rest of 2012 and beyond.”
