Quality Control Framework

Improvement of Quality Management Capability

NuFlare Technology aims to improve quality by making a shift from “passive quality control” to “active quality control.” To achieve this objective, the company is striving to increase the maturity of the quality management system by enhancing quality management capabilities that revolve around the following four core elements:

  • 1) Compliance, on which all our efforts are based.
  • 2) Quality Management System (QMS), on which our quality management capability is based.
  • 3) Enhancement of design quality and quality of procured goods.
  • 4) Enhancement of human resources that help to improve the maturity of our quality management capability.

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 the company; 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. The company 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 the company procures from them.

Disclosure of Quality Information

If any quality-related problems that could affect the safety of customers should be identified, NuFlare Technology will inform all customers, without any delay, as well as disclose information about them through the website of the company and by other means.

As for other quality-related information such as information about changes in parts that are used, the company will provide such information to customers in accordance with contracts with customers, relevant laws and regulations (Export Trade Control Order etc), and the like.
