Improvement of Quality Management Capability

Development of People Who can Contribute to the Improvement of Quality

All departments of NuFlare Technology provide quality-assurance-related education to promote the “development of people who can contribute to the improvement of quality.” Different departments plan and implement different educational programs designed to help increase awareness of the importance of quality management, as well as reliability technology- and quality control-related skills, required of their respective roles and functions. The aim of “education for quality management human resources” is to provide quality management education, including that on cause analysis and preventative methods, to departments that are involved in the lifecycles of products.

ISO9001 (Quality Management System) Certification and On-Site Improvement

NuFlare Technology has in place a Quality Management System (QMS) that has achieved third-party certification to ISO9001.

However, being certified to ISO9001 is not the final goal for NuFlare Technology; it aims to have its QMS reach further maturity. For example, its on-site improvement efforts include reviews, which are carried out to improve its quality management system by increasing the chance of recognizing potential hidden risks.

Cooperation with Business Partners

NuFlare Technology is working in cooperation with its business partners to improve the quality of the products that it procures. NuFlare Technology concludes quality assurance agreements with important business partners, while the Technology and Quality Assurance Departments provide these partners with the support they need in their respective areas of specialty, with the aim of improving the quality of products which we procures from them.
