Smart Sheet Metalwork puts quality central to all its business activities and is certified to the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Standard and the ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Standard.
Quality Control Team
In order to continually meet the requirements of ISO 9001 Smart runs fully documented Quality Manual, Operating Procedures and Work Instructions. To support these, the company employs a dedicated Sheet Metalwork Quality Team consisting of one Quality Manager, two Quality Engineers assisted by Project Engineers as required.
The team undertakes all aspects of quality assurance and inspection, utilising both traditional and state of the art measuring equipments (such as 3D and 2D measurement machines). Full dimensional inspection reports suited to specific customer requirements are provided, working to formal processes such as APQP and PPAP if required.
New Product Introduction
As a minimum, all new sheet metal product introductions are handled by a project team consisting of members from Quality Control Production and Commercial sections, and headed by a Project Engineer. The group members meet before the production initial to ensure that the bills of material, routings, drawings and production information are all accurate.
The Project Engineer then follows the pre-production and first production batches through to completion. With the assistance of the Quality Team, this Engineer will ensuresthat all fabrication works are produced correctly to the customer’s requirements first time, recording any detail changes on the production system for future batches.
Shopfloor Quality Control
Shopfloor inspection is the responsibility of all operatives and is carried out in line with the appropriate Quality Plan, plus quality documentation system, at each stage of the production process by trained personnel.
The information on Smart’s Quality System is available on customers’ request.
