AMREP IN QUALITY MANAGEMENT
AMREP is an unexpected creation of the IBM International Procurement Office when it engaged us to manage their suppliers in Singapore. We were responsible for ensuring the quality of their supplier’s products. In 1983 AMREP created the AMREP Quality Management Centre (AQMC) and worked with Dr. Joseph Juran and the Juran Institute in re-introducing Juran’s concepts on TQM and Quality Control in Asia. Dr. Joseph Juran and Edward Deming were the 20th century gurus of quality management. AMREP trained many suppliers, including Texas Instruments, Shell, Esso, on the use of Quality Improvement Teams, Quality Analysis and Quality Planning. In 1990 AQMC started ISO 9000 training and certification of auditors. AMREP’s current Quality Auditors are certified to TQM methods, SPC techniques, ISO 9000 and FDA regulations. They are also trainers.
In 1981 AMREP Vendor Inspection Services became the first and only company to begin supplier source inspection work on Asian suppliers for IBM.
