Commitment To Precise Execution Products, services and programs aren’t successful unless they meet, or exceed, industry standards, and more importantly, meet customer needs. That’s why Scott's commitment to quality is built around addressing the specified, and often unique, requirements of each project. It’s Scott's singular focus throughout every aspect of the development process—so clients can expect the highest level of quality and precision. Scott deploys top-end quality assurance, empowered team-members, ISO Certification engineering and constant review feedback loops. Scott's Team's have a comprehensive 5-point inspection system with state-of-the-art inspection, measuring and test equipment that is calibrated and audited to standards traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) organization.
Quality Statement: The policy is to provide customers and partners with products that meet, or exceed, their requirements and those recognized standards and to continually improve the effectiveness of our quality management system. Scott accomplishes this by adhering to procedures and establishing objectives that recognize customer satisfaction as the primary goal.
THE PROJECT PROCESS:
Project Initiation This is where Scott and his team begin collaboration with the client to assess project needs on a high level. They establish project type, the general capabilities needed, review existing drawings and often have engineers work directly with the client to add valuable manufacturing insights to the front-end design and strategy.
Design Review Scott meet's with the client and the project leads, usually including a manufacturing engineer, program director and senior team leaders. It’s how customers get a sense of who is working on the project, and how The Team can begin to develop a plan moving forward.
Establishing Milestones You can’t meet your goals if you don’t set them. Here, The Team establishes detailed expectations with clients and creates an in-depth internal plan to help meet them. By taking an extremely detailed approach to the planning phase, many of Scott's overall project plans result in 50 to 100 steps, sometimes more. Not only does this provide a meticulously planned road map to lining out all the resources needed to finish a project, but it also creates a system to track project status with precision along the way.
Deployment & Execution When it comes to successful deployment, preparation is key. So Scott always start this phase by sending approved and finalized drawings to one of his programmers who will prep the schematics for actual operations processes. Next, his Team sends the plans to one of the in-house facilities bringing the customer’s vision to life through precision execution.
Ongoing Communication There’s a lot at stake on every project, and Scott's customers want to know what’s happening at each phase. That’s why Scott is committed to maintaining transparency with his clients throughout the entire manufacturing process. In addition to routine status updates and collaborative web repositories, Scott's customers often receive phone calls, emails and even photos showing progress on their specific projects.
Inspection and Delivery Scott helps ensure that the project meets expectations for quality and performance through a five-point inspection system carried out by a dedicated team of quality assurance experts. Once the product, service or program is inspected and approved, The Team offers pick-up and delivery services to get the client what they need in the specific manner their job requires.
Project Management These project management services help ensure efficiency, optimized procedures and a level of involvement you won’t find anywhere else. Scott sees every step of a project as an opportunity to produce the best effort possible. Scott works with trained project management staff to ensure customers get the most value from his proven expertise at each phase in the process. Scott's consultative approach allows him to gain an in-depth understanding of customer needs and make recommendations that not only help meet them—but do so to ensure the highest level of optimization throughout the project.
