Fraunhofer IPK

Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology

Certification

The Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology IPK Berlin was certified according to the DIN EN ISO 9001 management quality standard on 7 August 2006, making it the first institute for production science in Berlin to apply an industrial standard for consistent quality assurance.

The standard was implemented using a model-based approach. Activities crucial for performance quality were identified in strategic, core and support processes and visualized using the MO²GO software tool. Every employee now has access to the processes in graphic and text format together with their support material over the Process Assistent intranet website.
