Major Manufacturing Milestone
Information Systems Laboratories, Inc.(ISL) is pleased to announce that our company has reached a significant milestone. Our Transition, Manufacturing and Sustainment Operations (TMSO), located in San Diego, California, received its initial AS9100 Rev C Certification of Registration. This will enable ISL to be listed in the OASIS supplier database, a recognized source of aerospace industry suppliers.
AS9100 is an internationally recognized Quality Management System standard to which suppliers in the aerospace, aviation & defense industries are measured. This standard is: (a) strongly supported & adhered to by major aerospace manufacturers, (b) endorsed by all major aerospace regulators and (c) increasingly being required within the aerospace supply chain.
The increased requirements of AS9100, which builds upon the ISO 9001 standard, will benefit both aerospace and non-aerospace customers by focusing on critical areas such as process control, quality control and continuous improvement. The scope of ISL’s TMSO Quality Management System applies to “the transition to production, coupled with the production and life cycle sustainment support of mission critical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance solutions for government and commercial customers worldwide”.
Before becoming registered as conforming to the requirements of AS9100 Rev. C, ISL’s TMSO site underwent a stringent requirements verification process. This process included an assessment of TMSO’s Quality Management System (QMS), a review of its processes and documentation, followed by a pre-assessment audit and a final certification audit with resolution of audit findings. This verification process was successfully completed and a Certificate of Registration was issued on May 23, 2016 by Intertek, an ANAB accredited registrar and Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide..
ISL has maintained a registered ISO 9001 compliant QMS since 1994 and this AS9100 certification of registration complements ISL current ISO9001:2008 certification. The dual certifications to AS 9100C and ISO 9001:2008: (1) recognizes that ISL’s TMSO policies, practices and procedures ensure consistent quality in the services and manufactured product provided to our Customers and (2) allows ISL’s Customers the confidence that their programs are being supported by an organization that: (a) prides itself on Quality, (b) is committed to being a world class supplier through quality products, on-time delivery and continuous improvement and (c) is dedicated to maintaining the highest effectiveness and responsiveness in achieving “Total Customer Satisfaction”.
