M&R Engineering

Woman owned M&R Engineering has over 40 years of experience in delivering high precision CNC machined parts and high-quality screw machined parts. They are currently AS9100 Rev D and ISO 9001-2015 certified, DDTC registered and ITAR compliant to meet the requirements of aerospace and military customers. Their team of skilled engineers and machinists use the latest programming techniques and equipment to deliver high precision CNC Lathe, CNC Swiss, and CNC Mill parts. They are fully equipped to handle both small volume large variety projects as well as large volume projects requiring millions of pieces in annual demand.  

 

 

 


Challenge

M&R Engineering fulfills contracts delivering high precision CNC machined parts and high-quality screw machined parts to Department of Defense contractors. As such, they need to maintain compliance with AS9100 requirements, a globally recognized Quality Management System Standard. This was imperative so the company can retain existing DoD and Aerospace clients and grow sales with new customers that require current certification to AS9100:2016 (Rev. D). This project helped M&R Engineering ease the risks of reduction of government contracts due to a lack of certification. As such, they were able to remain a viable supplier of critical equipment to DoD programs.

They needed help updating their current Quality Management System to provide clear and complete organizational structure, documentation and planning of the implementation of updates without interruption to the current business process. Other challenges included; identifying growth opportunities; ongoing continuous improvement/cost reduction; and employee recruitment and retention.

 

Solution

CMTC began the project with M&R Engineering in June, 2018 to discuss the pre-audit of the changes needed to comply with AS9100:2016 (Rev. D) and the training and coaching on documentation development. CMTC provided all the necessary project planning, consulting expertise, training, support and materials to develop and implement the required changes throughout the organization. A seven step plan was implemented in order to achieve AS9100:2016 (Rev. D) certification:

  1. Creation/Modification of Management System Documentation
  2. Documentation Training
  3. Implementation Training
  4. Internal Audit Training
  5. Correcting Internal Audit Findings Training
  6. Management Review Training
  7. Project Close-out & NIST MEP Client Survey Review

The two main deliverables of this project were:

  1. Completed assessment of the changes needed to comply with AS9100:2016 (Rev D)
  2. Training & Coaching on Documentation Development

 

Impact

  • Increased and retained sales of $700,000
  • 7 new and retained positions

"CMTC successfully transitioned our quality management system so that it meets the requirements of AS9100: 2016 (Rev D). CMTC has great depth of experts in a variety of manufacturing disciplines, and are very easy to work with.”
