Moxa has proven its ability to meet the specific requirements and growing expectations of railway customers by receiving the coveted International Railway Industry Standard (IRIS) certification from AFNOR Certification. This certification attests to Moxa’s high standards in all phases of product development, from design to development to manufacturing. The certification covers passenger information systems and communication systems.
The UNIFE (Union of the European Railway Industries) formulated the IRIS quality standard, which combines the widespread general quality requirements of ISO 9001 with stringent process requirements that the railway industry expects companies to meet. IRIS certification creates a uniform, international quality standard of excellence for all suppliers in the railway industry, thus eliminating time-consuming reciprocal evaluations and audits. The world’s leading train manufacturers all use IRIS certification and only place orders with subcontractors which have been certified according to the IRIS standards. Thanks to a company-wide commitment to high-value reliable products, sincere service, and a rigorous development process, Moxa obtained an above-average result in a recent IRIS audit.
The implementation of an IRIS-compliant management system enhances Moxa’s overall capabilities when serving long-term projects. IRIS certification represents the next step in Moxa’s close cooperation with the railway industry and clearly demonstrates Moxa’s commitment to exceeding all customer requirements and expectations.
Optimized operational reliability and system availability are guaranteed through comprehensive support which covers the entire project duration. This spans from the customer enquiry stage, to project management in the development phase, to configuration management in production, right up to installation and obsolescence management.
Rail systems need to operate on decades-long lifecycles, and Moxa’s proven product reliability and commitment to service availability deliver solutions with high longevity and low life-cycle costs. With obsolescence management, Moxa acts to minimize the impact of obsolescence and its potential to increase customer cost through proactive strategies such as long-term design thinking, obsolescence monitoring, and lifetime buy options as well as reactive strategies such as design revisions.
Moxa has adopted the RAMS V Model based on EN 50126 to develop, verify, validate and manufacture our products, thus ensuring the highest quality standards for IRIS requirements.
FMEA improves quality, productivity and safety while providing a means for reviewing product and process designs and ensuring regulatory compliance. With knowledge-driven FMEAs, Moxa manages critical characteristics across the quality lifecycle and ensures our customers will be immediately informed of any process changes.
