Deco has a quality management system (QMS) that meets or exceeds most customer expectations, though we can accommodate other requirements as needed. At Deco, quality is not a requirement, rather, it is a given. Deco is certified to ISO 9001-2015 standards and also uses AIAG APQP methods regularly, including:
- Control plans
At Deco, quality planning begins before producing the first part. In an initial meeting with design, production, tooling, and engineers, the team compiles data regarding the casting’s application, function, and performance requirements.
Upon completion of the plan, our team designs and fabricates any necessary special gauges or fixtures. When the tooling is complete, we produce samples and dimensional layouts. Statistically-based routine inspection is integrated with production to ensure our production meets our standards of excellence.
In addition to our conventional QMS, our dedication to excellence is exemplified by our commitment to continuous improvement. This includes ongoing process improvements, preventative actions, and lean and 5-S efforts.
