Electronics expert information – by experts, for experts
Iftest is an expert for key subject areas involving the development, industrialisation and volume production of challenging, high-quality electronic components and devices. Find out more about Iftest’s experience in the field of quality and conformity pertaining to regulatory directives. Our whitepapers and fact sheets provide important answers and information on technical subjects and relevant business processes in the Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) industry.
Quality is more than just collecting certificates – for Iftest, quality constitutes a comprehensive understanding of regulated markets and their respective requirements as well as absolute control over the relevant processes and their consistent implementation from development to volume production. This includes the use of the most up-to-date Quality Management methods and continuous development and implementation of inspection technologies in production.
Regulated markets and regulatory requirements
Many of Iftest’s customers are active in markets which have stringent regulatory requirements. One example is medical technology. Specific, important regulatory directives have to be met for medical products. These include the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) in the EU and the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) in the USA. Qualification and validation of processes are important criteria here, as is consistent risk management from development through to volume production via the Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) process.
Quality management methodology
Iftest takes a consistent approach to Total Quality Management and Lean Management from development through to volume production. A key component of this is the Continuous Improvement Process (CIP), which systematically identifies and improves areas with potential.
Quality and test engineering
True to the company’s roots as an engineering agency for test equipment, Iftest’s experienced team of engineers develops and builds customer-specific electric testing equipment. Iftest also has significant expertise in automated optical inspection and is continually developing this process. Iftest delivers optimum solutions through the intelligent combination of optical and electrical tests. This guarantees the development of a high-quality, cost-efficient product that meets customer expectations.
