AirBorn’s six product manufacturing facilities have completed the process for multisite, AS9100 Rev D and ISO 9001:2015 certifications.

The global inspection firm SGS audited AirBorn’s facilities in Addison and Georgetown, Texas; Akron, Ohio; Lake City, Pennsylvania; Little Falls, Minnesota; and Taunton, Massachusetts, where they found the current processes to be in accordance with AS9100 Rev D and ISO 9001:2015.

“This certification illustrates AirBorn’s continued commitment to providing our customers quality products and unmatched service while continually striving to improve our internal processes and procedures,” AirBorn President and COO Michael Cole said.

Each facility previously held individual AS9100 D certifications, however this latest certification marks the first time AirBorn’s US manufacturing facilities have been evaluated and certified as one entity.

“Providing our customers with the same level of uncompromising quality, regardless of manufacturing location, is at the core of our company’s mission,” explained Christine Mason, VP of Quality / Continuous Improvement. “This certification is a testament to dedication and determination of our team members across the country.”

For more than 60 years, AirBorn solutions have been relied on by medical, defense, aerospace and industrial leaders to design and deliver products used in the most demanding environments. Its components can be found on the moon, Mars and the International Space Station as well as in tanks, warships, next generation fighter jets and in hospital emergency rooms.

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
