EMCORE is dedicated to the most stringent and demanding quality management systems to achieve the highest levels of on-time delivery and customer satisfaction possible. Our expert product engineering, management and operations teams work in synergy to ensure a smooth and efficient quality assurance process from product development, to supply chain management and inspection, through final assembly and shipping.
We are continuously driving improvement and training our team on systematic thinking and problem solving tools to maintain a culture that designs and builds quality into all our products and processes. EMCORE has fully embraced the principles of Six Sigma and Lean manufacturing to achieve our goals for operational excellence.
Six Sigma is a proven approach to improving business processes based on statistical analysis. The Six Sigma methodology is based on five steps. Define – Measure – Analyze – Improve – Control. Known as DMAIC, it uses a set of empirical and statistical management methods and creates a special infrastructure of people within EMCORE who are experts in these methods.
At EMCORE, most of our professionals are trained on Six Sigma fundamentals. A significant number are American Society for Quality (ASQ) certified Green Belts and Black Belts, with Master Black Belts in the top leadership roles.
EMCORE operates a Quality Management System that complies with the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 for the design and manufacture of communications equipment and AS9100 for the design and manufacture of aerospace equipment.
