"My job covers two main functions – quality steering and inspection management. On the quality side, I assist the management committee in the implementation of its quality policy and the improvement of our ISO 9001 approach as regards guidelines, procedures, objectives, and so on.
This means I supervise all of the steps and procedures put in place internally concerning problem management, transmission of information and customer feedback, and implementation of monitoring procedures. In addition I manage the inspection team that monitors the quality of our suppliers’ products.
That involves inspection plans, individual project programs and instruction manuals. I also supervise the manufacture of equipment in order to avoid problems, particularly during the production cycle."
