TULSA, Okla., Jan. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Ultrasound Electronics (AUE) has achieved ISO 13485:2016 certification, the culmination of a multi-year improvement and optimization initiative for the Tulsa, OK, company. ISO 13485 is the international quality management system standard for medical device manufacturers.
"ISO 13485 certification means that AUE has put documented processes and regulations in place to ensure customer satisfaction," explained Jim Carr, Director of Service and International Operations. "This includes having a corrective action process to investigate any problems that could potentially occur and ideally eliminate them from ever happening again. This leads to continuous improvement of our products and processes." https://auetulsa.com/about/quality/
For AUE customers, this means an even greater commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. "Achieving the certification is really a demonstration that the company's leadership is fully engaged in the work that goes out the door," said Eric Beeson, Process Control Manager. "It means that we understand the equipment's importance to our customers and their patients, and we're constantly evaluating our processes for improvement."
Earning the certification took several years of work and was made easier with quality management system training assistance provided by Tulsa Technology Center. The training was part of Tulsa Tech's business economic incentives to foster retention and growth of skilled jobs in Tulsa County.
