Michigan Aerospace Manufacturers Association Selects Total Quality Management Systems as Preferred V
Grand Rapids, Michigan, June 11, 2008-The Michigan Aerospace Manufacturers Association (MAMA) has named Total Quality Management Systems (TQMS) to its preferred vendor network. TQMS is the developer and provider of the Continuous Improvement Systems (CIM) software system, a web-based paperless management solution for use by customers via the Internet. A cross platform automated management system, CIS is designed to cover the entire enterprise from ISO to human resource management to planning to purchasing, etc. It tracks nonconformities, customer complaints, near misses and corrective actions and sends email notifications to the responsible party to ensure that issues are addressed and proper customer follow-up is initiated.
"All our member companies are required to achieve AS9100 (aerospace) and ISO 9001:2000 registration," said MAMA vice president Craig Wolff. "With CIS, auditors can see everything within a company's management system in real time allowing them to provide ongoing meaningful input, thus making it easier and quicker to achieve the audit."
"We are honored that MAMA recommends us to its respected manufacturing members," said Peter Sanderson, president of TQMS, "We believe that CIS can positively contribute to each company individually as well as to the success of the organization as a whole."
Through a grant from the state of Michigan, MAMA assists its members in achieving AS9100 registration by subsidizing the cost of the necessary training.
