Basin Precision Machining has been committed to lean manufacturing since the introduction of the “Goal” in the early 1980s. At Basin Lean is a journey of continuous improvement.
Corrective and Preventive Actions (CAPA)
These are implemented in response to a suspected deviation from one or more of the Basin Quality Systems. Utilizing 8D and 5-Why methodology, we have an analytical approach to problem solving. Work-flowed through our ERP system Plex, we never miss a step.
Six Sigma and TPS Methodology
To further focus on continuous improvement, Basin Precision utilizes TPS and Six Sigma methodologies. We are constantly measuring, analyzing, and improving our business processes to better serve our customers.
Statistical Process Control
The most current statistical methods are used to analyze our processes, assuring the highest quality product is produced and the robust, repeatable manufacturing process chosen remains stable and unchanged. Advanced process planning including Process FMEA and full PPAP submission are available to guarantee a smooth start up to the most difficult projects.
SPC data is recorded into Plex right in every work cell which parametrically links the data to the serial number of the material lot the measurement came from. This provides strong traceability, and the ability to track down issues with 100% certainty.
Basin deploys 7 Zeiss Coordinate Measuring Machines to assure access to accurate, timely, and automated measurement data to our team members. We also have vision systems, and a vast array of state-of-the-art manual measuring equipment.
