AMT helps manufacturing companies put the processes in place to achieve higher levels of quality that can lead to reduced costs and increased customer approval. Quality certifications are available specific to the industry a company works. Many large corporate buyers require their suppliers maintain current certifications.

AMT has successfully completed hundreds of Quality Management System projects and can assist you with multiple quality standards including ISO 9000, ISO 13485, ISO 14000, TS 16949, AS 9100, cGMP.

Enterprise-wide lean methodologies provide a customizable, measurable, and proven framework that transforms your company into a sustainable Lean Enterprise. Lean thinking, incorporated in your business strategy, is the foundation of a high-performance enterprise. Lean eliminates waste and provides manufacturers with the biggest opportunity for immediate bottom-line improvement. AMT can assist you in strategic and policy deployment activities to ensure successful planning and execution.

Improving the effectiveness of business processes, both operational and transactional is often challenging. Many organizations resort to a “firefighting” method to solve day-to-day issues as needs arise. Our Six Sigma training and consulting services are a proven way to help organizations combat these problems by eliminating defective processes and identifying the underlying causes. AMT can also help you create an in-house capability by training and certifying your people as Yellow, Green or Black Belts in Six Sigma.
