The accreditation certificate confirms not only the technical and organisational competence, but also the quality and independence of the audited test laboratory. The introduction of a strategic quality management system required by the standard encourages sustained high performance quality, thus guaranteeing high customer satisfaction.
As an accompanying measure, a database-assisted laboratory management system was also rolled out during the accreditation process, to guarantee and clearly document the standard-compliant handling of all relevant business processes.
At its test facility at the Ingolstadt site, EDAG offers a comprehensive spectrum of testing services for the mobility industry. The test centre covers an area in excess of 5,000 m², and em-ploys more than 60 testing specialists in the fields of environmental simulation, vehicle safety, interior and exterior validation, vibration & acoustics and electrics/electronics.
"To have achieved internationally acknowledged accreditation is a huge success for us," stated Heiko Kremer, Head of Testing at Ingolstadt. "It publicly documents our excellent technical set-up. Thanks to our years of experience, we know exactly what customers expect of our testing services. In view of the fact that development periods are becoming shorter and shorter, reliable and top quality test results and services are extremely important. With the quality of our testing services, we guarantee our customers optimum, state-of-the-art support in the development process."
In addition to Ingolstadt, the EDAG Group has further accredited test laboratories at its facilities in Böblingen, Fulda and Munich.
