Quality Management System

Quality Management System

AirBorn Flexible Circuits uses an automated quality management system (QMS) to ensure that the products we produce are of the highest possible quality.  The QMS has many capabilities to it and the customers that tour our facility are always impressed by the way we leverage this technology.  Below are a few of examples of the capabilities in our QMS system:

All of the functions of the QMS system are accessed directly from the dashboard.  This allows users to easily get to the information they need to perform their function.
