Quality

The aluminium quality achieved in ALRO Slatina, is in conformity with the international norms and the LME standard. This fact assured a good name of the company on the world market and consequently a bigger and bigger demand which can be satisfied only within the limits of the existent production capacity.

The implication of ALRO’s management team in achieving the quality has been clearly established on the business plan prepared for management’s responsibilities taking over and it has been approved by the Shareholder General Meeting. The management team experience in production domain, sales and marketing of aluminium helped the company so that the orientation to the customer becoming a pivot of the company round about to develop. This message has been communicated to all its employees during the presentation of the business plan.

Generally, the object of SC ALRO SA is to obtain and keep its reputation on the domestic and external markets.

SC ALRO SA will do all the best to carry out the needs of its customers by delivering products with a constant good quality.

Obtaining of the general object is realized only by cooperation and implication of all factors contributing to the product quality assurance in ALRO SA.

The message regarding the quality is communicated in the policy concerning the quality domain, declaration and message of the Managing Director, preparing meetings, audits.

ALRO implemented an Quality Assurance System certified SR EN ISO 9002:95 in 1996 and certified again according to the same standard in 1998 by SRAC.

Domestic and foreign auditors regularly audited the system. In April 2000 ALRO has been audited by Alcoa Kofem Kft company. The result of this audit was “excellent (98%)”. The audit cycle, preventive and corrective measures and analysis of the management helped to the implementation of PDCA approach (Planning, Development, Control, Amelioration) in the company.

Besides keeping a certified quality system ALRO approached since 2001 an “Quality – Environment” Integrate Management System obtaining the certification as per the new standard ISO 9001:2000 and shortly the certification according to ISO 14001.

The contribution of the Quality Management System to ALRO strategy implementation concerning the product quality towards the customers has as objectives:

  • Satisfaction of the customers.
  • Satisfaction of the shareholders.
  • Satisfaction of the employees.

This contribution is illustrated by the following example:

  • a data base regarding the stage of the non-conformities discovered.
  • a data base containing the specifications of the raw materials (performed with the supplier’s help) and a data base containing the product specification (achieved by cooperation with our customers).

Quality Manual indications for assurance of the consistency and uniformity of the operational procedures, execution and control procedures are observed by all operators.

A regular analysis of the contracts including of those involving the sale/marketing and technical functions so that ALRO to be able to perform permanently the contractual requests.

Standardization of the analytic methods by calibration of the analytic equipment and common successive tests with the customers (when is necessary).

Once engaged to obtain a “TOTAL QUALITY” in ALRO a frame has been created where the creative ideas are encouraged for improving the processes.

The continuous development process is supported by:

formation of a good trained labour based on a competence criteria.

The extensive training of the employees within the specific domains of their profession, within the quality and safety domains.

Approach involving the employees for understanding and observing the customer requests.

Information from the customers and from reports, regular connections and solving of the claims.

The cycle of domestic and foreign audits, management analysis and corrective/preventive measures in the system certified SR EN ISO 9001, recognition of employees contribution for amelioration of the quality product.

The performances in service supply to the customers are measured depending on the delivery in due time, reaction speed, adjustment of the claims and report results regarding satisfaction of the customers.

ALRO’s management promoted the use of instruments with an adequate quality in the entire organization. The analysis of the primary reasons is used for instance by using the fish-bone diagrams (Cause-effect) for identification of the base problems and Pareto analysis in order to establish the priorities. Use of charts and data in the company became more systematic due to the use of statistic methods. The most important achievement was the understanding and the use of the variation concept (not only medium values) by the management and employees. This fact leaded to a systematic implementation of the statistic control process and studies related to the capacities of the production process. It was relatively easy to encourage all members of the company to use diagrams and concepts regarding the processes.
