Quality Management Principles
Client focus: understand current and future client needs, meet client requirements, and exceed client expectations.
Leadership: establish unity of purpose and direction of the organization; create and maintain the internal environment in which people become fully involved in achieving the organization’s objectives.
Involvement of people: people, not machines, make quality a reality. When vision, objectives, and plans are shared, everyone will be working together to benefit the organization and the client.
Process approach: the desired result is achieved more efficiently when activities and related resources are managed as a process.
System approach to management: identifying, understanding, and managing interrelated processes as a system contributes to the organization’s effectiveness in achieving its objectives.
Continual improvement: to achieve excellence, never settle for the status quo, and always continue to improve.
Factual approach to decision making: effective decisions are based on the analysis of data and information.
Mutually beneficial supplier relationships: an organization and its suppliers are interdependent and a mutually beneficial partnership enhances the ability of both to create value.
Every design build project at ABCO Automation is led by one of our many dedicated project managers using standardized processes based on PMI best practices. An ABCO project manager begins by clarifying and aligning the project's key objectives and deliverables with the client’s business and stakeholders. The project manager manages all phases of the project feasibility, concept, design, construction, and start-up through successful completion.
Our project management team makes every effort to keep projects on schedule. Using Microsoft Project, project managers create and share with clients a detailed production schedule. Communication of project statuses are typically tailored to each client’s requirements but may include design review documentation, monthly progress reports, milestone updates, and weekly updates.
Project managers customize the system installation plan to each client/project, depending on each client’s specific requirements. ABCO supports each automation system during the installation and start-up phase on the client’s site. Clients are provided thorough documentation and training to maintain their automation system. ABCO continues to provide support as needed for the life of the system to maintain high operating efficiencies.
