"If this stuff doesn’t save time or money,
then why are we doing it?"

Helmut Jilling / Asociates

We promote a different approach to ISO (ISO 9001, TS-16949, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001). We focus on squeezing more value and benefits from ISO programs. Too often, ISO programs are not getting the profits and improvements they promised. Many companies are simply not seeing the benefits they expected.


Are Internal Audits providing meaningful findings to improve your company? Do they provide value? Or, do they seem to just bury you in little corrective actions that make paperwork?


Is your ISO program too much hassle? We need to apply a different approach to ISO. We can implement an easy, compliant way to get a lot more value from ISO programs.


Most of my clients operate at 0-5 PPMs, and 100% delivery. Do you want to be one of those? Would that reduce stress in your day-to-day operations?

OUR SERVICES

HELMUT JILLING / ASSOCIATES has offices in Charlotte, NC and Akron, OH. We provide Training, Consulting, Auditing all over North America. We can also work in Europe or Asia, as needed. 

Most Training, Consulting, Auditing is provided directly by Helmut Jilling, the Sr. Consultant. He has over 15 years of experience in quality improvement and ISO based systems. (See "Tools" to download his CV). We also work with a select network of specialists (AS 9100, Six Sigma) to supplement any particular specialties as needed.

Public Training at public venues are held at various times and places throughout the year. These meet the ISO and TS requirements. According to the ISO and TS Rules, when training is public, anyone can participate. The Rules allow even my current audit clients to participate, without any conflict of interest. The Rules expressly allow that type of training, and it is not considered consulting. 

Private Training, typically done onsite at a company, allows more direct and in-depth Training, Review and Involvement in your company’s own QMS and EMS. It also allows us to work more directly with specific problems you are experiencing.

IATF 16949 / TS-16949

Helmut Jilling has performed over 1500 audits. He has been active in TS from the first release. He has passed all TS trainings and certification tests from the first one, He is an accredited IATF TS auditor with a current license.

He is very experienced in the TS requirements, along with the AIAG Blue Guidebooks - PPAP. FMEA, APQP, SPC and MSA.

As an Auditor and Consultant, he sees the requirements from both perspectives, and can help clients implement programs that are both compliant and beneficial to the organization. His focus has always been on Value-Added - systems must provide Bottom-line Benefits to the organization. Just satisfying customer requirements is not enough.

ISO 9001

Helmut Jilling has performed over 1500 audits. He has been active in ISO 9001 from early 1997. He has passed all RAB and ANAB ISO and ISO/TS-16949 trainings and certification tests from the beginning. He is an accredited IATF TS auditor with a current license (TS covers all the ISO requirements, plus some extra).

He is very experienced in the ISO requirements, along with promoting the ISO 9001 Process Approach. A lot of companies are not getting the full benefit from their ISO programs and efforts. They put in a lot of time and money, but do not seem to get the full benefit. His focus is on helping companies develop their programs to get the full benefit.

As an Auditor and Consultant, he sees the requirements from both perspectives, and can help clients implement programs that are both compliant and beneficial to the organization.

ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001

Helmut Jilling has performed over 1500 audits. He has been active in ISO 14001, shortly after the first release. He has passed all ISO trainings and certification tests from the first one. His training was in an accredited ISO 14001 program with a current certificate.

He is very experienced in the ISO 14001 Environmental requirements. However, his approach goes beyond the basic compliance aspect of ISO 14001. Our philosophy is that people and companies have a basic responsibility to treat the planet well. However, some of the environmental ideas thrown around these day, have no root in financial practicality.

Our philosophy is that we must do what is reasonable and practical, or Washington will create regulations that don't take practical considerations. But further, our expereince is that Environmental programs can be put in place that have a net savings to companies. Many of his clients see savings in utilities and material use, as well as reduction in waste, that far exceed the cost of implementing the programs.

He promotes the simple 3R approach to Environmental - REDUCE - REUSE - RECYCLE.

As an Auditor and Consultant, he sees the requirements from both perspectives, and can help clients implement programs that are both compliant and beneficial to the organization. His focus has always been on Value-Added - systems must provide Bottom-line Benefits to the organization. Just satisfying customer requirements is not enough.

OHSAS 18001 is a sister program. Modeled directly from the Environmental ISO 14001 standard, this one focuses on applying the same requirements, but with an eye toward improving Safety. The beauty is the two programs work hand in hand, and are designed to work as one, or be integrated. We can help companies integrate them into a simple effective program that saves resources.

Both programs can also be combined into a seamless, integrated overal Business Management System covering all three programs - Quality - Safety - Environmental.

Lean Manufacturing, Six Sigma, 5S

Continual Improvement Tip: Human error occurs all the time. However, "Operator Error" typically is not the ROOT cause. The "error" is usually the function of another cause - perhaps inadequate communication, controls or skills. Operator Error should only be determined as the ROOT cause, when other avenues have been adequately investigated and eliminated.

Then, in some cases, "Operator Error" may be determined as the Root Cause. This is important if you intend to eliminate the root cause. You don't want to continually eliminate good people. And, as you probably know, "retraining" is not always so effective. For more on this topic, please see our Training Schedule (in the free "tools" tab above). We offer a 1 day training class on Corrective Action, Preventive Action, OFI and Root Cause.

OUR GUARANTEE

Our approach is rather simple - we believe that the ISO based programs, when implemented properly and effectively, will more than pay for themselves. They will add money to the bottom line by improving performance.

However, a lot of companies do not find that. They have made an investment, but they don't see the full gains and benefits they expected. A lot of companies have become somewhat pessimistic on the whole ISO idea.

 We work with a lot of those clients. And, we guarantee, if you work with us, and follow the plan we lay out, the net cost will be zero, with a positive contribution to your bottom line.

 We find one of the biggest gaps is just attempting to launch into ISO 9001, TS-16949 or ISO 14001, without adequate training, guidance or planning. ISO is a little more complicated than that. A lot of companies just try to tackle it on their own. It works much more effectively with the proper partnering with a good trainer / consultant who can give the proper guidance. And, if the net cost is ZERO, why not?
