Quality Assurance

My expertise includes all aspects of the Quality Assurance process learned over many years as a Quality/Engineering Manager. In that capacity, I ensured that customers' designs would meet their needs before we took an order. This often entailed systems review, design for manufacture, and liaison to ensure success.

Ways I can help your QA process:

Processes, documentation, and training

  • Creating complete quality systems, including policies and manuals, document control system, calibration, management responsibility, etc., to the requirements of ISO-9001, MIL-I-45208A, and ISO-9000-2000

  • Creating and documenting test methods to enable verification

  • Documentation of customer requirements, test methods and records, and calibration

  • Audits to ensure systems are working properly

  • Procedures and training to prepare the department to be self-sufficient

  • Awareness training of entire company

Testing methods

  • Interferometry

  • Null testing

  • Alternative figure and TWF evaluation

  • Radius and focal length

  • Autocollimation

  • Alternative angle tests

  • Cylinders and aspheres

  • Retardation and extinction

  • Free spectral range

  • Little-known tips and tricks
