CMK's quality and environmental management systems
In order to expand the supply of products globally, it is essential to have systems in place for ensuring a consistent level of quality for every product, regardless of which factory in the world manufactured it.For that reason, relevant companies of the CMK Group have acquired ISO 9001 certification, the international standard for quality management systems used worldwide, along with IATF 16949, the international standard for quality management systems in the automotive industry (replacing ISO/TS 16949). They have also acquired ISO 14001 certification, the international standard for environmental management systems.In order to more efficiently and effectively implement in-house management initiatives based on these international standards, the CMK Group has integrated its quality and environmental management systems and is ensuring their sound operations while continuously initiating improvements.
Measures for improving product at a consistent world-class level of quality
The CMK Group carries out reliability assessments of its products based on higher than average standards while taking into account how each of its product specifications are applied in the market and quality assurance periods. This approach enables the Group to deliver safe and dependable products to customers.
If a product does not meet the standards set in a reliability assessment, the causes are exhaustively studied and the results are relayed back to the factory that manufactured it for the purpose of further improving quality.
In the event a product defect is discovered, various kinds of analysis equipment installed in-house are used to analyze the causes, the results are accurately and promptly reported, and relevant countermeasures are implemented to prevent a recurrence. By applying this expertise, the CMK Group works to improve quality so that it can manufacture products at a consistent level of quality.
