Our customers will never receive a product beyond its required date.
We achieve this through 100% end of line inspection, coupled with clearly scoped and developed projects that involve our customer at every stage of design. At Airbase we pride ourselves on right first time and a defined continuous improvement program incorporating all operatives that always strives to be better. Our Operations Director Edward Dyer is well versed in the Black Belt, Lean 6 Sigma approach to quality from his background in Automotive production and this ethos is rolled out across the production process. This is measured through our First Time Pass Rate key performance indicator where we target greater than 99% of products pass our end of line inspection.
Our customer will never see a fault.
We achieve this through constant updating and communication with customers & a proactive planning approach managed by our in-house Master Production Schedule and a clear understanding of our processes and the related timings. Additionally we maintain a strong relationship with suppliers to help control costs and reduce material lead-times. These relationships are maintained by our account managers and customer requirements planners who are always on call to answer customer queries and provide you updates to progress. We understand that things change and we will be as flexible as production allows when things do. This is measured through our On Time In Full KPI, where we measure goods shipped on time to promise date.
