SCHURTER’s quality management was one of the first in Switzerland to be ISO 9001 certified
The fact that SCHURTER constantly strives to achieve the highest safety, simplicity of operation and sustainable business practices is also evident at management level. Some 23 years ago, SCHURTER AG’s quality management was one of the first in Switzerland to be ISO 9001 certified. Over the years, futher certifications followed.
Supplementing the EFQM model is Six Sigma (6 σ), a management tool for process improvements, and an integral part of quality management at SCHURTER since 2009. Core elements of Six Sigma are the description, measurement, analysis, improvement and monitoring of processes using statistical means. Fault rates, which have always been measured and evaluated annually in all areas of the enterprise, have been steadily reduced thanks to a wide variety of measures.
One of the reasons the trend towards full automation is so important is because the market makes increasingly stringent demands on products, in particular in relation to components in the safety field such as fuses and fuse holders. It would be very difficult to achieve the ppm values required by the market with manual labor or semi-automated processes. For this reason, the trend toward full automation is unavoidable for manufacturers, if they want to remain competitive.
