Korry Electronics Case Study

SIMCO CERDAAC Helps Korry Minimize Production Downtime and Meet Regulatory Requirements

Summary

  • Uses both SIMCO calibration services and CERDAAC software
  • 6,000 assets tracked
  • No limit on # of users gives global visibility into the system
  • Using CERDAAC to predict when parts are due for calibration saves the company both time and money.

“Tracking and scheduling calibration and maintenance on all these different tools is a huge job, and doing that manually makes you very dependent on a single individual.” — Shannon Younger, Director of Quality and Compliance, Korry Electronics Co.

Overview

Korry Electronics Co. has been a trusted name in human-machine interface (HMI) solutions for 75 years, when the company created the first lighted cockpit controls for the developing military and commercial aircraft industry. Now a part of Transdigm Group Inc., Korry continues this tradition as it develops the crew station of the future, providing state-of-the-art switches, cockpit controls, night-vision filters, and high-performance Korry Display Modules (KDMs).

Korry’s manufacturing production line includes thousands of pieces of equipment, regulated by several different industry quality standards including AS 9100, ISO 9001, ANSI/NCSLI: Z540-1 and/or Z540-3, and ISO/IEC 17025 (current revision).

To help keep its equipment properly calibrated and maintained in compliance with both customer and industry standards, Korry uses a combination of SIMCO’s calibration and repair services, and SIMCO’s CERDAAC software. The company implemented CERDAAC in 2010 to automate processes that were previously managed using a combination of spreadsheets and handwritten records.
