METTLER TOLEDO Announces New Library to Help Organizations Implement ISO 9001 Revisions

Changes to ISO 9001 were made in 2015 and all ISO 9001 certified organizations have a three-year transition period to update their quality management systems accordingly. If an organization’s processes involve any weighing steps, METTLER TOLEDO can provide support to easily make the necessary updates using the proven risk-based Good Weighing Practice approach.

Greifensee, Switzerland—August 14th, 2017—ISO 9001 is a standard that sets out the requirements for a Quality Management System (QMS). Its aim is to help businesses and organizations be more efficient and improve customer satisfaction. ISO 9001:2015 was released in 2015 and certified organizations have to adapt their processes to meet these changes by the September 2018 deadline. Greater emphasis is placed on the process approach and risk-based thinking is now an important focus. Continuous improvement can be achieved by implementing the recommended Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle. But how do these elements relate to weighing?

Moller International/Freedom Motors August 2017 Newsletter

Moller International

    After assessing the quickest to market volantor model, it was determined that the Neuera Firefly is the best initial choice.  The reasons for this are as follows:

  • There is an immediate need for a volantor that can extract someone from the side of a high rise in case of a fire. This need is universal throughout the world.

  • An aircraft that can save lives in this high-profile application will get preferential treatment in the approval process.

  • The compact size also makes other rescue missions possible (diameter 9ft versus 40 ft. in a helicopter).

  • The Neuera 200, which is close to flight test stage can be used to seek FAA approval.  Since both vehicles use essentially the same engines, flight control system, and very similar airframe, this will speed up the FAA flight approval process for the Firefly.

  • The Neuera 200, Neuera Firefly, Skycar® 100 and Skycar 200 all fall within a weight category that has the potential to be FAA certified (following FAA approval) under a subcategory of the light sports aviation (LSA) category. This would greatly speed up and reduce the cost of FAA certification.

  • The cost of FAA approval for both the Neuera 200 and Firefly should be less than $1,000,000.
