TRAX Quality Assurance

Ability to monitor and maximize quality
TRAX has a culture of quality performance. The company has developed and implemented strict and comprehensive Quality Control and Quality Assurance programs at all its contract and project sites, each specifically tailored to meet the respective mission and contract requirements. Although the quality function is always the direct responsibility of the Program Manager, all employees are not only trained in quality assurance and quality control processes, but are expected to perform accordingly. Through the use of corrective and preventive action procedures, we are able to encourage quality performance down to the lowest levels of the organization and thus enable deeply-embedded issues to rise to the surface for analysis and resolution.
Depending on contract requirements, TRAX uses either a dedicated or dual-hatted Quality Control Manager (QCM) that reports directly to the PM. For larger contracts, the QCM has a dedicated QC support staff. The QC staff’s purpose is to review and audit all elements of project management and administration. Regularly scheduled inspections and audits are conducted both randomly and on a scheduled basis by quality control and safety specialists. CORs are invited to participate in this process.
Operational issues that occur are documented through a web-based Quality Deficiency Reporting system. The Quality Deficiency Reporting system also provides an effective, automated tool for trend and failure analyses. Our open reporting methodology emphasizes our management policy of full partnering with our customers. All parties have access to the same information and can brainstorm solutions as a team.

TRAX Quality Processes
The TRAX quality approach includes every contract functional element and has specific responsibilities for every employee. Work processes for all contract scope of work elements are controlled by formal work instructions and Standard Operating Procedures, which include process descriptions and flow charts, risk assessments and mitigation, safety considerations, training requirements, customer and TRAX metrics, reports, and resolution of non-conformances.
Our Quality Management Plan includes regularly scheduled reviews, internal audits, process reviews, Work Instruction reviews, performance metrics, and tracking. Our Plan is structured to ensure the quality of ongoing operations and to raise the quality bar over time through continuous improvement. The end result is a continuous process improvement mechanism to deliver cost-effective services and products that consistently exceed our customers’ expectations.

TRAX Quality Certifications
The TRAX Quality Management Plan is based on industry-best practices of ISO 9001:2008 and Lean Six Sigma (6σ). Elements of AS9100 are incorporated for critical and complex processes in the aerospace industry.
TRAX, at its own expense, has trained over 10 of its key senior leaders and managers in the principles of Lean Six Sigma. Joint Army and TRAX Lean Teams at Yuma have dramatically improved GSA vehicle services, visitor processing, test data management, and test set-up procedures. TRAX has also participated and supported the Lean Six Sigma process at WSMR. These teams have evaluated and improved Tracking Optics Operations and Media Services for this Army test facility.
