The Quality management system of Pan Metal is based on ISO 9001: 2008 (Quality Management System – Requirements) and NBR 15100: 2010 (Aerospace Quality System).
In search of a efficient increasingly quality system, The Pan-Metal has all the necessary resources to ensure the quality of our products and technical team with extensive experience in measuring, monitoring and quality management.
The company has a specialized team of technicians and engineers who use software development, such as NX and Solid Edge (Siemens) to develop the product according to the process needs.
The company also uses the Mega ERP system (Enterprise Resource Planning) and VLC-MES (production management system) to manage all activities concerning, manufacturing, purchases, Planning, etc.
The PAN METAL INDUSTRY METALS LTDA. SEARCH THE CUSTOMERS SATISFACTION, PROVIDING PRODUCTS AND SERVICES THAT MEET the REQUIREMENTS AND EXPECTATIONS WITH PROPER TIME AND COMPETITIVE COST, CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVING the QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM.
Lean manufacturing, translatable as lean manufacturing is a management philosophy focused on reducing the seven types of waste (overproduction, waiting time, transportation, over-processing, inventory, motion and defects). By eliminating such waste, improves the quality and production time and cost decrease. Tools “lean” processes include continuous analysis (kaizen), production “pull” (in the sense of kanban) and elements / failsafe processes (poka-yoke).
A crucial aspect is that most of the costs are calculated on a product design phase. An engineer will specify known materials and processes and costs at the expense of other cheap and efficient processes. This reduces project risks. Companies that follow this methodology develop and forward check sheets to validate the product design.
The key points of lean manufacturing are:
Immediate total quality – go in search of “zero defect”, and detection and solution of problems at the source.
Minimizing waste – elimination of all activities that have no added value and safety nets, the use of scarce resources optimization (capital, people and space).
Continuous improvement – reducing costs, improving quality, increasing productivity and information sharing
Processes “pull” – the products are removed by the end customer, and not pushed to the end of the production chain.
Flexibility – quickly produce lots of different variety of products without compromising efficiency due to lower production volumes.
Construction and maintenance of a long-term relationship with suppliers having the risk sharing agreements, costs and information.
Lean is basically all that concerns getting right materials at the right place in the right amount, minimizing waste, being flexible and open to change.
