For a small company like ours, quality is an essential issue that has great importance to us. No matter the number of pieces ordered or how extensive the service offering may be the quality performance must be flawless. To take another step towards quality assurance we have implemented an Application Lifecycle Management System in our business at the beginning of this year. The so-called ALM Tool supervises a product through its complete lifecycle. The product manager can store all available information about the product in the system, starting with the customers’ needs over testing up to quality assurance in the field and thus guarantees an ideal traceability. Consequently, the system creates complete specifications for each product. It is possible to chart almost every process due to the implemented modelling languages UML/SysUML which greatly contributes to the avoidance of misunderstandings and risks of errors. The tool is an agile development tool that is designed for the continuous optimization of all processes, as well as the customization for each employee.
All processes that are required according to the QMM (ISO 9001) can be carried out error-free which increases our qualitative performance immensely.
To us it is important to uphold a high quality standard. As long as we produce decent quality products our customers are satisfied – that is our highest aim. We work according to the principle of individual responsibility, to enhance productivity in our business as well as to create a good working atmosphere in which our employees are solely responsible for the quality of their work. We take on the daily challenge of working to the best of our ability and are thus continuously improving the overall working performance as well as the business output of the company. Only like that we manage to offer all our services knowing we can master them to perfection.
We are certified according to ISO 9001:2008. Thereby we want to make sure our quality standards are always on the rise. We also work according to the guidelines of ISO/TS 16949 (FMEA, 8D-Report, risk analysis etc.). We demand that our production partners and suppliers are certified accordingly.
Another aspect to which we attach great importance is the sustainability of our business, great environmental awareness and the responsibility coming along with it. Our work is strongly based on our company policies which you can find on our website. The next milestone we strive for the certification according to the ISO 14001.
As early as 1949 it was written that „Human dignity shall be inviolable. To respect and protect it shall be the duty of all state authority.” (Basic law Art. 1 § 1) in the Constitution for the Federal Republic of Germany. Furthermore it says „All persons shall be equal before the law.” (Basic law Art. 3 § 1)
We entirely act according to those principles. Our business emphasizes the „we“ because we want our employees to feel welcome and at ease at all times – for the benefit of our business as well as the benefit of each of our employees. Thereby it is not only important to us how our staff members treat each other, but also we want to make sure that their workplaces are safe. For that reason we regularly examine all our risk associated facilities.
Each member of staff is expected to treat external associates with the same attitude they display towards their own colleagues. We strive for a healthy and friendly relationship with all our business contacts at all times.
Last but not least in our business a vital importance is to be ascribed to the environment. Anxious to keep our ecological footprint as small as possible we would like to take this opportunity to motivate other companies not to underestimate the environments high significance and contribute to the protection of the environment at an early stage.
To ensure all of the declarations above are accounted for we put them down in several documents – our company policies.

The interdiciplinary and systematic method of advanced, quality-based planing at the beginning of the process of prouct development.
In the area of structured development processing Bauer Safety Engineering uses a professional tool to avoid failure and produce high-quality products at the earliest possible moment. Hereby we rely on the instrument of a manufacturer who is well-established in the automotive section.
The FMEA, the failure mode and effects analysis is based on a systematic approach as well as on interdiciplinary and creative working, critical evaluation and much more.
- Our method:
Our aims while using the FMEA method focus on the early recognizing and localizing of failure in the products and processes. We are trying to achieve a constant improvement of products and processes by investing time to recognize risks and causes. Afterwards we will thorougly try to avoid these. The improvement of the products and processes mainly takes place through the systematic analysis of potential failures. Thereby the state of the product development and process planing is contantly documented in order to constructively avoid failure costs.
- Our motivation behind the method:
- Contract law
- Protection of health and property (product liability, „state of the art“)
- Accident control (criminal law)
=> Proof of dute to take care
- Value Analysis and Value Engineering
- Contract law
=> demand of QM-systems (ISO 9001, QS9000, ISO/TS 16949)
- Range of application:
On the contrary to the official form-based line of action in this case the functional and non-functional requirements are in the foregroand.
Functions and failures clearly describe causes and effects of every induvidual case. The assignment of system elements to main functions additionally allows extreme widely oriented developments.
Value analysis and cost-benefit analylsis depicts only one of the many advantages. The tool and the appropriate course of action are used in proprietary development as well as in service areas of consulting.Thereby either moderative projections or even complete value analysis project can be shown off. The main focus of the outcome lies on the improvement of quality as well as the very important optimization of costs.
