Continuous Process Improvement

Continuous Process Improvement

At VTI we are continuously looking to improve our process. We believe that reducing variation in our processes will lead to improved process control and fewer defects.

Six Sigma Problem-Solving Approach

VTI employs Six Sigma as a quality management methodology used to discover and eliminate defects. The goal is to streamline quality control so there is little to no variance throughout.

Design of Experiment Studies

VTI uses DOE as a systematic method to determine the relationship between factors affecting a process and the output of the process. An understanding of DOE requires knowledge of statistics and experimentation. 

Kaizen

We incorporate the Japanese methodology called “Kaizen.” At VTI we are continuously looking to improve our process. We believe that reducing variation in our processes will lead to improved process control and fewer defects.

Poka-Yoke

Poka-yoke is a Japanese concept loosely adapted from the more familiar English term “idiot-proof.” Rather than assume the worker is an idiot who needs to be protected from themselves, poka-yoke instead refers to the act of avoiding a really bad move.

Continuous Testing and Inspection:

At VTI we implement continual quality testing to ensure peak performance and are trusted by both government and leading industrial, medical, and aerospace, and defense companies.

Customer Specified AQL Level Inspections

VTI incorporates standard acceptable quality limits to our QA system. VTI can also support products that demand a more robust AQL, depending on the application.  

In-Process Testing 

In-process testing is performed on products during the manufacturing process to ensure it is being manufactured to customer specifications. Inspection and performance testing is performed by quality control specialists prior to shipping. 

Inflation, Vacuum Testing

VTI has extensive experience in inflation and pressure loss testing, water- and fuel-leak testing, and many other types of in-line tests deemed critical for product application.
