We provide organisations with a validation of processes and resources to ensure that you can carry out:

  • Supplier and product assessments by a quantitative approach, assessing technical and commercial issues.

  • Demonstrate where necessary compliance with specifications and technical standards.

  • Use cost-effective measurements to identify the root cause of the problem to enable effective, corrective and preventative action targets to be set.
