Capabilities
   Capabilities       
   Your choices are...         
   Auditing / Assessment       Quality audits or assessments are the independent evaluation of a company's quality assurance procedures and processes (quality manuals, QA sampling, quality control/SPC) and a determination on whether the company complies with and follows their planned quality documents and procedures.  Quality audits or assessments can also used to compare a particular aspect of quality performance to a standard for registration purposes or for vendor approval (qualification) by an OEM or prime contractor. 
   Certification       Certification services providers verify that the company's products, parts, services, process, quality system or procedures comply with or conform to industrial, OEM specific or third party standards. 
   Consulting / Training       Company offers training and consulting related to testing, inspection, test methods or techniques, regulations, regulatory impact, and/or the registration process. 
   Evaluation       Evaluation is the process used to determine if a product, service, component, facility, or quality system meets specific standards, performance criteria or OEM specific requirements. 
   Failure Analysis / Troubleshooting       Failure analysis is the evaluation of a product and product failure to determine the underlying cause of the failure. Failure analysis results are used to correct design flaws. Troubleshooting is diagnostic or corrective maintenance performed to correct an existing problem. This differs from preventive maintenance, which is performed proactively in order to prevent system problems. Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is a specialized methodology for analyzing failures. 
   Field Evaluation / On-site Inspection       Company provides field evaluations or on-site inspections at the supplier's facility or at the site of the supplier's activity. 
   First Article / Contract QA       First articles are pre-production or pilot run samples evaluated to assure conformance to the specified standards, procedures and contract requirements. Contract quality assurance (QA) providers sample, inspect, test or evaluate production samples, sites or facilities, processes or procedures.  First article inspection and third party QA services are often requirements for some medical or aerospace production or government contracts. 
   Fixtures / Equipment       Company offers design and fabrication services, test fixtures, test equipment, or test facilities for specific applications. 
   In-process / In-line Testing       Company offers in-process or in-line testing so that products can be tested in functional environments. 
   Research and Development       Research and development (R&D) services perform original investigations (research) to gain new knowledge, and/or apply research findings to create new or significantly improved products or processes (development). 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted capabilities.

Services
   Services Offered       
   Your choices are...         
   Condition Monitoring       Condition monitoring and machine maintenance services monitor the condition of machines, processes and rotary equipment.  Condition monitoring and related services under this category include: ferrography or oil analysis (lubricant testing) alignment, position, balance evaluation and correction, and ultrasonic fault detection. Other preventive machine maintenance services are repairs, part replacements, or lubrication replenishment performed on a regular time based schedule. Condition monitoring and machine maintenance services providers often perform predictive maintenance (PdM) and/or preventive maintenance to maintain reliability, avoid loss of life, and prevent costly, unplanned plant or machine shutdowns. 
   Color / Appearance       Company evaluates color or appearance including haze, gloss, Hunter color, CIELAB color, or chroma. CIE stands for "Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage," an international group of color scientists whose standards make it possible to accurately communicate color information. L describes relative luminance, A represents relative redness-greenness and B represents relative yellowness-blueness. 
   Corrosion       Company tests corrosion effects and for corrosion resistance. Corrosion is a chemical or electrochemical reaction between a material, usually a metal, and its environment, which causes deterioration of the material and its properties. 
   Dimensional Gaging / Metrology       Company gages dimensional parameters or provides metrology services. Gages or metrology instruments used can include  micrometers, plug gages, ring gages, universal gages, CMMs, profilometers, optical comparators, laser micrometers, depth gages, height gages, go-no go gages and well as other mechanical, optical, pneumatic and electronic gages.  Gaging may be performed on new component off a production line, prototypes, or for reverse engineering of components.  The test can be performed before or after other dynamic or environmental tests.

   Semiconductor / IC Packages       Semiconductor, microelectronic and IC package testing includes testing at the wafer, die or packaged IC level.  Semiconductor and IC package testing suppliers often provide wafer sort and packaging services in addition to component evaluation. In the packaging process, fabricated wafers are cut into dies and then "packaged" in a lead frame or other system, which protects the chip and allows interconnection to the electronic circuit on the PCB, module or product. Wafer sort is wafer level testing where the individual dies are tested for defects and then marked before the packaging process. Defective dies are rejected, which avoids unnecessary packaging costs. After the packaging and interconnect is complete, the packaged device may be put through additional functional or burn-in testing often using automated test equipment (ATE).
