Continuous Improvement

Our commitment to "Total Customer Satisfaction" starts with our continuous improvement philosophy. We have embarked on a corporate strategy to eliminate waste in delivering customer requirements. Our lean initiatives aim to reduce waste while achieving targeted productivity by emphasizing innovative tools and techniques. This includes using less human effort, less manufacturing space, and less investment tools to develop a new product. Lean manufacturing tools used by our trained employees include: 5S, Standardized Work, Value Stream Mapping (VSM), Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Self-Directed Work Teams, Mixed/Level-Loaded Production, Setup Reduction (SMED), Poka Yoke, and Office Mapping.

Coupled with our Lean tools are our Six Sigma initiatives focusing on eliminating problems with the manufacturing of products. Our Six Sigma has two goals, the first is to improve the current process and products. The second is to create new processes that are better suited to elimination of defects.

AMT is certified in ISO, AS and TS Quality Systems. Within the framework of our Quality system, every new product moves through our comprehensive Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) to ensure that our products continue our tradition of engineering excellence and manufacturing quality.
