Materials Non-Compliance is a growing issue with off-shore suppliers, which is the leading source of supply for many aerospace & defense contractors despite buying from a US distributor.
In the repair, assembly and build of a sensitive device, the protective material is just as important to protect the end product from high yield failure during manufacture, handling, storage or shipment.
Suspect Counterfeit Awareness Training is also critical for Logistics, Incoming Inspection, Procurement and Management due to the growing number of counterfeits undetectable at first glance when moving through the supply chain.
No longer is visual detection obvious to the untrained eye. With the use of some simple techniques of observation and equipment widely used throughout Industry for other applications, RMV can provide the awareness necessary to mitigate and avoid the proliferation of material non-compliance and/or counterfeits throughout the DoD supply chain.
RMV leadership is comprised of iNARTE Certified SMEs in the Materials Handling, Long Term Storage and Transport of Ultra-Sensitive Components and Parts for the DoD, NASA and Industry.
Co-Chair of the SAE G-19 IEEE Counterfeit Parts Committee, Bob Vermillion, CEO/Founder, is the driving force behind the Incoming Inspection Standard under development for the SAE G-19 Subcommittee.
Specialized techniques for the avoidance and detection of non-compliant materials and suspect counterfeits in the supply chain can qualitatively reduce the risk levels associated with purchase of a part or component without traceability.
An internationally recognized Author, Speaker and Industry recognized SME, Bob Vermillion trains NASA, DoD and DOE primes and suppliers with an emphasis upon Incoming Inspection – the First Line of Defense!
The NASA Safety Center recently commented “This was the best ‘hands on’ training I have ever had“- a compliment that Bob will never forget!
