1   Introduction

    Honeywell is committed to quality leadership and continual improvement of its products and
    processes, including the Global Management System (GMS) which supports them. This
    document describes the elements of that framework.

    Additional information about Honeywell International is available on the internet at

2   Purpose

    Identify and document a common Quality and Environmental Management System. The
    GMS is designed to incorporate the needs of our customers/regulatory agencies and uses ISO
    9001:2000 and ISO14001:2004 as its foundation with AS9100:2004, and TS 16949:2002
    requirements also being included and applicable in locations having the need to comply to
    those requirements as well. AS9100:2004 requirements are printed in italics and TS
    16949:2002 requirements are printed in bold.

    The document is intended to provide an umbrella Quality & Environmental system.
    Honeywell's vision is to use the GMS to provide a framework for sharing best practices and
    ensuring consistent processes. Processes that are identified which can be effectively
    deployed at a global level will be added to the GMS.

    To meet the requirements of the relevant standards and the effective operation of individual
    site operations, the GMS will be supported by local site supplement quality manuals,
    procedures and processes where appropriate.

    Sector specific quality standards or other relevant third party certifications not covered by
    this manual will be referenced in the appropriate site quality manual supplement.

3   Scope

    The scope of this manual covers the Sensing and Control (S&C) businesses within
    Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions, hereafter referred to as “The Organisation.”

    It incorporates the following:
    Design development and manufacture of controls for Sensing and Control.

    These controls cover applications for sensors, switches, controls systems, actuators and
    instruments for measuring pressure, air flow, temperature and electrical current.

    The integration of the quality and environmental systems supports the idea that quality and
    caring for our environment should be part of our daily business.

    Note: All references to Environmental Management Systems in this manual apply only to
    sites that are ISO 14001 certified or in the process of becoming certified. References to AS
    9100 and TS16949 requirements only apply to those sites which require certification or
    compliance to these standards.

         Each site must align their local management system with the Key Process map, Figure
         4.1. Some sites may not have all of the processes identified on the map. Elements of
         this may be sub-contracted or may be carried out by other sites within the scope of the
         GMS. In those cases, any processes carried out by other locations should be stated in
         the site quality manual supplement.

         The organisation is responsible for conforming to customer requirements,
         including those which may be controlled in outsourced processes.

   4.2   Documentation Requirements

         4.2.1 General (4.4.4 ISO 14001)

                 The documentation requirements of the GMS, including those requirements
                 imposed by the applicable regulatory authorities, and their relationships are
                 described in the Figure 4.2.3. The Business and Site levels are optional.

                 The organisation ensures that personnel are aware of and have access to the
                 quality management system documentation and relevant procedures. The
                 quality management system documentation is available on-site to customers
                 and/or regulatory authority representatives and this manual can be viewed on-
                 line at

         4.2.2   Quality & Environmental Manual (4.4.4 ISO 14001)

                 This manual describes the requirements of the GMS. Each Site is required to
                 support the GMS and to provide direction and guidance to their relevant areas.
                 The Quality and HSE managers constitute the interface between the
                 requirements of the Quality and Environmental standards and the structure of
                 the company. The GMS is established and reviewed under the responsibility of
                 the System and Compliance group and approved by both the President and the
                 Operations Leader.

                 Cross references to Global Procedures are made in the appropriate sections of
                 this manual which they support. A hyperlink to each procedure is included for
                 internal usage only and is identified in a
                 In addition to the GMS Manual, sites have a quality manual supplement. The
                 supplement defines:
                 a.) local processes and practices including their relationship to the
                      requirements of the AS 9100 standard,
                 b.) scope of system including identification of support locations and exclusions
                      (along with justification), and
                 c.) the applicability and sequence of the global key processes (Ref Figure 4.1) in
                      relation to the site.

          ESGP 05.01 Objectives, Targets and Programs

   5.2 Customer Focus (4.3.1, 4.3.2 ISO 14001)

         The primary goal is to focus relentlessly on satisfying customers.

Honeywell                                                                          Page 9 of 35
       Management ensures that the customer and consumer needs and expectations are
       determined, converted into requirements and achieved, e.g. contract review/customer
       satisfaction surveys/field trials/quality function deployment.

       Customer feedback including any field returned products are monitored/ analysed and
       used to drive internal improvement.

       Management ensures through management review, Customer Care Organisation, and

         customers, suppliers and the public about the safe use of our products and openly
         communicate the protective measures we take for employees, our communities, and
         other key stakeholders.

         ACCOUNTABILITY – We utilize management systems to apply global standards,
         including compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Our executives and
         managers are measured and held accountable for the safety and environmental
         performance of their businesses. We hold every employee accountable for his or her
         role in meeting our commitment.

         STAKEHOLDER INVOLVEMENT – We work with stakeholders in the development
         of laws, regulations and standards that safeguard the community, workplace and
         environment. As a responsible corporate citizen, we demonstrate this commitment by
         working within our communities and actively pursuing independent certifications and
         recognition, as appropriate.

         CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT – We address occupational injuries and illnesses,
         emissions, wastes and inefficient use of resources and energy as preventable process

                 or annual performance review system to assess and manage the training
                 requirements and competency of employees.

                 Management cascades goals throughout the organisation annually using the
                 Annual Operating Planning process which then cascades objectives down to

                 Each site develops procedures regarding identification of training needs,
                 implementation of training, and assessment of competence. Training includes
                 assuring that individuals are aware of how they contribute to quality and
                 environmental policies, objectives and targets.

                 Product design personnel are skilled in the usage of the appropriate tools
                 for achieving the design requirements.

                 In addition to the identification of training needs, the documentation
                 includes responsibility for conducting training, recording of the completion
                 of training and evaluating the training provided.

                 Both full and part time personnel, who affect the quality of products and
                 services, are given on the job training when given new or changed work
                 assignments. Also they are told of the consequences to customers when
                 there is a non-conformance in quality requirements.

                 Processes are in place to motivate achievement of quality objective,
                 continual improvements, and an environment for innovation, with a
                 measurement process for determining the level of employee awareness.

   6.3   Infrastructure (4.4.1 ISO 14001)

         The organisation provides and maintains the infrastructure necessary to achieve
         conformity of products and services (including subcontracted).

         Including but not limited to:
         • buildings, workspace and associated facilities;
         • process equipment, both hardware and software; and
         • supporting services (e.g. transport, communications, facilities, maintenance).

Honeywell                                                     Page 16 of 35
         The organisation utilizes a cross-functional team approach in developing the plans
         for facilities, equipment, and processes. The objective is to optimize process and
         material flow, floor plans, and the use of floor space. As indicated in the
         appropriate procedures, evaluations are made of the factors that affect our
         manufacturing capability, such as plant layout, work flow, automation and human
         factors issues, and inventory management.

         Plans are developed to assure that emergencies which cause work stoppage are
         planned for. This includes plans for utilities and equipment failures, labour
         shortages, and field returns.

   6.4   Work Environment

         Functions and sites provide the appropriate work environment needed to achieve
         conformity of product, and to minimise any risk to the environment.

         In the design and development of products and manufacturing processes,
         consideration is given to the safety risks of employees.            This includes
         considerations made during FMEA risk analysis, error proofing during design
         and process control, and consideration for compliance to regulations.

         The sites maintain a clean and orderly work environment appropriate to the
         products being produced.

       (4.3.1, 4.3.2, 4.4.6 ISO 14001)

               The method of determining and reviewing product requirements is controlled at
               the Business and/or Site levels as appropriate for each business and customer
               set. The organisation determines customer requirements both stated and not
               stated, as well as other additional requirements including statutory and
               regulatory requirements. Reviews are conducted prior to acceptance of a
               contract or order.

               These reviews include requirements of the product, order or contract. Needs
               related to special characteristics, traceability, safety, environmental
               requirements, produceability, and after sales support will be defined.
               Manufacturing feasibility, including risk analysis, are conducted and
               documented as part of these reviews. In addition, risks are evaluated to
               determine those which may adversely affect the ability to meet the commitment
               to supply product to the customer.

       7.2.3   Customer Communication (4.4.3 ISO 14001)

               Customer focus and two way communication is a key element of everyone’s
               responsibility. When designated, the customer’s specified language and
               format for communications is followed.

               Feedback of the customer and regulatory agencies, related to both positive and
               negative experiences is used as feedback for the organisation and is used for
               continuous improvement of the quality & environmental system.

   7.3 Design & Development (4.4.6 ISO 14001)

       The product development processes define the inputs, outputs and review process

       The organisation uses the “New Product Introduction Process” to manage product
       development. It may be customized, to meet unique operating environments. Owners of
       customized processes are responsible for ensuring deployment, maintenance,
       implementation, and monitoring of these customized processes. Input data is reviewed
       to verify that there is consistency with the requirements identified.

       7.3.1 Design and Development Planning
             The development process is defined by documented procedures. Every project
             encounters different circumstance, conditions and constraints and has different
             needs and requirements which must be met. Each project development team
             has responsibility to determine and document the elements (both mandatory and
             optional deliverables/tasks) that are necessary to accomplish the project and the
             order in which they will be accomplished in a project plan, as well as
             identification of configuration management needs. In planning, consideration is
             given to identification of project owner and team members, design requirements
             including the input and output needs as it relates to each element, and for
             achieving the objectives for the safety and functionality of the product including
             those requirements identified by customers and regulatory authorities.
             Environmental considerations are part of the design process from early concept
             through to delivery. Each element’s input data is reviewed to assure that they
             are consistent with the requirements.

                ESGP 04.02.02 Application of the EMS to Project and Production

               A cross-functional approach is used in the product realization process, including
               the development and review of FMEA’s and control plans, as well as the
               development and monitoring of special characteristics.

       7.3.2   Design & Development Input

               During the requirements stage, a detailed methodology is available to assure
               that customer and environmental requirements are accomplished. Documents
               are used to identify and register the different requirements.

               The technology organisation is responsible for completing all necessary steps
               needed for customer, agency and environmental requirements.

               The design and manufacturing process design inputs are identified,
               documented and reviewed, and include the identification of special

       7.3.3   Design & Development Output

               Quality records required by the project plan are kept in a project file (electronic
               or hardcopy). These are the outputs in the stage summary matrices of all
               elements that are mandatory as well as all other project specific elements the
               team has selected. The project outputs:
               • meet the inputs requirements,
               • provide valuable information to assure appropriate purchasing, production,
                  and servicing,
               • identify the acceptance criteria for the product,
               • identify any characteristics important to the safe and proper use of the
                  product, and
               • specify key characteristics related to the design and contract requirements.

               The product design output is verified and validated, and includes:
               • design FMEA, reliability results,
               • product special characteristics and specifications,
               • product error-proofing, as appropriate,
               • product definition including drawings and mathematically based data,
               • product design review results, and
               • diagnostic guidelines, where applicable.

               The manufacturing process design outputs are verified and validated
               against manufacturing process design input requirements, and includes:
               • specifications and drawings,
               • manufacturing process flow chart/layout,
               • manufacturing process FMEAs,
               • control plan,
               • work instructions,
               • process approval acceptance criteria,
               • data for quality reliability, maintainability and measurability,
               • results of error-proofing activities, as appropriate and methods of rapid
                  detection and feedback of product/manufacturing process

               A project file accessible to all team members are established and maintained by
               the project team. Data is provided which supports the configuration, design,
               manufacture, and sale of conforming product. This includes, but is not limited
               to, drawings, part lists, routings, product specifications, inspection and test
               documents, work instructions, and quality plans.

       7.3.4   Design & Development Review

               During the stages of the Design and Development process, reviews are built in
               to assure the full potential of the new design/development to meet the
               customer/market and environmental requirements. During review, problems are
               identified and solutions proposed, and if warranted authorization is give to
               move on to the next design and development phase. Checklists are completed to
               keep track of the process.

               Measurements for specific phases of design and development are defined,
               and analysed. These may focus on areas such as quality risks, costs, lead-

Honeywell                                                     Page 20 of 35
               times, and critical paths, to name a few. Results from the analysis are
               summarized and provided as input into the site’s Management Review.

       7.3.5   Design & Development Verification

               The verification of the Design and Development Process is planned to assure
               that output of this process is consistent with inputs of the process. Records are
               completed as a part of the verification process.

       7.3.6   Design & Development Approval

               The Design and Development approval process is a team based process. A
               project approval form is completed by the team.

               Upon completion of the design and development activity, records showing that
               the product meets the defined specifications are maintained.

               The planning, conducting, reviewing and documenting of tests for verification
               and validation are performed when required. This provides evidence that:
               • the plans address the product and test objectives, acceptance criteria, the
                  conditions that the test is run under, and the resources to be utilized;
               • the test procedures address the test methods, performance and results;
               • the proper product configuration was provided for testing;
               • the test plan and procedures were followed; and
               • the criteria for acceptance were met.

               Design and development validation is performed in accordance with
               customer requirements (e.g. program timing).

               The prototype process utilizes the same suppliers, tooling, equipment and
               processes that are planned for use in the production of the product.

               Performance testing to requirements is conducted according to plans.

               Outsourced processes are controlled in the same manner that would be
               applied if they were being performed in-house, including the providing of
               technical support.

               The product and manufacturing process approval procedure applies both
               internally and to suppliers.

       7.3.7   Control of Design & Development Changes

               When changes in the design or development occur, the team reviews the impact
               for the customers. When the changes have a significant impact for the
               customers, or there are contractual requirements to do so, the changes are
               discussed with the customer. Customers and regulatory authorities are given
               change control approval when required by contract or regulatory requirement.

   7.4   Supply Management (4.4.6 ISO 14001)

         7.4.1   Supply Management Process

                 The organisation ensures that requirements for purchased products and services
                 are clearly defined, communicated to and understood by the supplier. This
                 includes the need for purchased products and materials to conform to any
                 applicable regulatory requirements.

                 Suppliers are evaluated and selected on their ability to meet the defined
                 requirements, the nature and criticality of the product or service being
                 purchased and the supplier’s environmental impact. Suppliers are certified to
                 ISO 9001:2000 and have a goal of achieving conformance to the TS
                 16949:2002 standard, exceptions require customer approval. The use of
                 customer-designated approved suppliers may be specified by the customer
                 through contract; purchase orders, drawings, or specifications. Careful
                 consideration is given prior to the usage of a customer-designated supplier to
                 assure that the supplier is capable of providing the same quality of product
                 and service, we require from all our suppliers. The organisation maintains
                 records of qualified suppliers.

                 To ensure the quality of the supplied material meets the requirements, a supplier
                 selection and assessment process has been established. New suppliers are
                 selected according to criteria, including but not limited to, the following:
                 • quality;
                 • delivery time;
                 • price;
                 • service and readiness to join in a continuous quality improvement program
                     (zero defects goal); and
                 • environmental aspects.

                 Goods and services are purchased from suppliers that are included on our
                 current approved suppliers list/database which identifies the supplier and scope
                 of their approval. Supplier performance is reviewed and the level of controls to
                 be placed on individual suppliers is identified. The extent of control exercised is
                 dependent on the type of product being purchased, and when applicable, the
                 supplier’s previously demonstrated capability and performance. This control
                 includes the actions which are taken on suppliers who do not meet
                 requirements, the use of customer-approved special process suppliers, and a
                 process for disapproving the use of suppliers.

         7.4.2   Supply Management Information

                 The organisation’s purchasing documents clearly describe the products or
                 services being purchased. Including where appropriate:
                 • the requirements for approval of the product or service,
                 • qualified personnel,
                 • management system,

Honeywell                                                       Page 22 of 35
              •   identification (including revision) of drawings, procedures (processes,
                  inspection) and other technical information,
              •   acceptance methods (test, inspection, etc.),
              •   management of test samples (production, identification and storage),
              •   handling of nonconforming product, including notification and approval;
              •   product and process changes;
              •   access of supplier facilities and records by the organisation, also by our
                  customers or their representative, and any applicable regulatory agencies
                  when specified by contract and with prior coordination with the
                  organisation; and
              •   flow down of requirements from the supplier to its sub-tier suppliers,
                  including any Key Characteristics.

              These documents are reviewed and approved for the adequacy of the specified
              requirements prior to release to the suppliers.

       7.4.3 Verification of Purchased Product and/or Services

              The organisation plans for verification of purchased products and services to
              determine that they meet the specifications of purchase. This verification may
              include one or more of the following:
              • receipt of and review of objective evidence of quality of the product
                  supplied, including documentation such as inspection and test reports, C of
                  C’s, statistical data and process control records;
              • inspection or audit at suppliers facilities, including those by 2nd or 3rd
                  parties when supported by delivery of acceptable product quality;
              • documentation review;
              • incoming inspection;
              • evaluation of material at an approved laboratory, and
              • delegation of inspection to supplier or certification by supplier.
              When specifically agreed to by the customer, other verification methods
              may be utilized.

              Incoming material released without verification is recorded to allow for recall
              and replacement.

              The organisation may delegate the verification activities to the supplier.
              Records of delegation are maintained. Methods, acceptance and reporting
              criteria for these verification activities are documented in appropriate
              procedures, quality plans or other instructions. Test reports for raw materials
              are periodically validated by the organisation.

              Where specified on the purchasing documents, verification at the supplier’s
              premises may be carried out by the organisation and by customer’s
              representative or regulatory agencies when the contract specifies. Verification
              by the customer is not evidence of quality control and does not relieve the
              organisation of its responsibility to provide product with meets requirements,
              nor does it prevent rejection by the customer later.

Honeywell                                                  Page 23 of 35
               Supplier performance is monitored based on the following:
               • product quality;
               • customer interruption including those involving field returns;
               • delivery performance (including incidents of premium freight); and
               • quality or delivery issues identify by customer.

               Suppliers are encouraged to monitor the performance of their own
               production processes.

   7.5   Production & Service Operations (4.4.6 ISO 14001)

         7.5.1 Operations Planning and Control

               Operations Planning includes establishing of process controls and the
               development of control plans, when key characteristics are identified;
               establishing in-process verification method, when conformance can not be
               verified at later phases of production; provision of tooling to take variable
               measurements, include those for key characteristics; and consideration of
               special processes (see 7.5.2).

               The organisation establishes and maintains controlled conditions for performing
               and verifying production and service processes. These controlled conditions
               • information describing the product characteristics;
               • monitoring and controlling suitable process and product characteristics
                   during production, with emphasis on those characteristics designated as key
                   by the organisation, or the customer;
               • documented procedures and/or work instructions for production;
               • generation and retention of quality records as evidence of the completion of
                   planned manufacturing and inspection operations.
               • identification of activities related to process monitoring and measurement;
                   to release, delivery and post-delivery; and to Foreign Object Detection;
               • use of suitable equipment and working environment (including documented
                   compliance with government safety, environmental, and hazardous material
                   related regulation as appropriate)
               • planning and performing of regular scheduled maintenance of production
                   equipment as necessary, to ensure process capability and reduce downtime,
               • criteria for workmanship are either written or expressed by means of
                   representative samples;
               • identifying and accounting for all product during production; and
               • monitoring and controlling utilities (such electricity, gas and water) and
                   supplies (such chemicals) as it relates to their effect on product quality.

               These processes are described in detail at the Business or Site level and include
               quality and environmental controls.

               Control plans are developed for the pre-launch and production phases and
               are updated when changes affect the product realization. Processes that

Honeywell                                                    Page 24 of 35
            affect the quality of the products are documented in procedures or work
            instructions and support the quality plan, control plan and product
            realization process. This documentation is available to the employees
            responsible for these processes. Verification of job set-ups is preformed
            when setting up the initial run, and after change over. Set up personnel
            have access to the work instructions as well. Statistical techniques are
            utilized where appropriate.       Preventive and predictive maintenance
            methods are applied to key equipment, tooling and gauging.               In
            conjunction with outside resources, tooling and gauging is designed,
            produced, and verified. Production scheduling is driven by customer
            requirements. Field claims are managed through the corrective action
            process and involve manufacturing, engineering and quality. When a
            service agreement is in place by customer contract, action will be taken to
            assess the effectiveness of the service centre equipment, tools including
            software and training of personnel.

            Production operations are completed in accordance with approved
            documentation which may include, but is not limited to, drawings, part and
            tooling lists, routings, product and process specifications, inspection and test
            documents, work instructions, and machine programs.

            Changes to production processes are reviewed to assure that they do not result
            in any adverse effects to the quality of the product. Documented processes are
            in place to control changes affecting production processes, equipment, tooling
            and programs. Approval of changes is limited to those identified as authorized
            to do so. When required by contract or regulatory requirements, approval of
            changes is obtained from customers or regulatory authorities.

            Prior to usage, production equipment, tooling and programs are checked to
            assure that they have been maintained and inspected in accordance with
            documented procedures. First piece inspection to design specifications prior to
            production may be used as validation. Periodic checks of tooling and equipment
            in storage are conducted.

            If work must be temporarily transferred outside of the organisation’s facilities,
            it is controlled and monitored in the same manner applied internally in order to
            assure the quality of the work is maintained.

            When identified as part of an agreement with a customer, the service process
            will include:
            • collection and analysis of service data;
            • investigation, resolution and reporting of problems related to service;
            • control and maintenance of related service documentation;
            • control, implementation and approval of repair instructions; and
            • controls for performing work off-site.

       7.5.2   Validation of Special Processes

               The organisation validates processes where resulting output cannot be verified
               by subsequent measurement or monitoring. The organisation ensures that these
               processes are carried out under control conditions which are documented at a
               Business or Site level. This includes any processes where deficiencies may
               become apparent only after the product, service, or solution has been delivered.
               Validation includes review, qualification and approval of the process before use,
               approval of equipment and qualified personnel, control and usage of
               documented operating procedures, maintenance of records and re-validation.

               Requirements stated in this section apply to all production processes which
               must be compliant to TS 16949:2002, not just those identified as Special

       7.5.3   Identification & Traceability

               The organisation maintains identification of products throughout manufacturing,
               stocking, delivery and services in accordance with procedures. A record of the
               product configuration as it is built is maintained to allow for identification of
               any discrepancies between the “built to” and “agreed to” configurations.
               Stamps, electronic signatures and passwords utilized for acceptance authority
               are controlled by the organisation.

               A unique identification is used and recorded when traceability is a requirement.
               Dependent on the level of traceability required by customers’ contract or
               regulatory requirements, the system is capable of maintaining:
               • identification of the product throughout its life;
               • traceability of all products manufactured from the same batch of raw
                  material or in the same manufacturing batch (including the tracking of all
                  product from the batch);
               • identification of components in the next higher assembly; and
               • retrievable records of the products production.

       7.5.4 Customer Property

               The organisation identifies, verifies and protects customer supplied materials,
               equipment, intellectual property and data. Customer property, including
               returnable packaging, which is lost, damaged or otherwise found to be
               unsuitable for use is recorded and reported to the customer.

               Customer-owned tooling and equipment are visibly and permanently
               marked to allow identification of ownership.

       7.5.5. Preservation of Product

               The organisation maintains processes on the handling, storage, packing and
               delivery for the preservation, protection of products (including its individual
               parts), and the environment. The organisation maintains processes to ensure

Honeywell                                                    Page 26 of 35
               that documents required by the contract/order are sent with the product and are
               protected against being lost or destroyed during shipment.

               Where applicable, preservation includes provisions for:
               • cleaning;
               • Foreign Object Detection;
               • handling of sensitive products( such as ESD sensitive);
               • marking and labelling (including warnings related to safety);
               • controlling shelf life and rotation of stock; and
               • handling of materials which may be hazardous.

            At a minimum, annual stock condition checks are conducted. Finished
            product stock is managed on a First-In-First-Out (FIFO) basis. Obsolete
            product is handled in a manner similar to that of nonconforming product.

   7.6 Control of Measuring & Monitoring Devices (4.5.1 ISO 14001)

       Functions and sites using measuring and monitoring devices are responsible to provide
       a process for identifying measurements and the monitoring devices required to assure
       conformity of product to requirements, as well as those devices required for the
       environmental management system. This includes employee-owned and customer
       supplied devices which may be used to provide evidence of conformity. A listing of
       active devices is maintained along with its location and identification information, a
       detail description of the item, the calibration frequency, method for checking and
       acceptance criteria, and certification showing traceability on primary standards.
       Calibration records also include revisions following engineering changes,
       assessment of the impact of out-of-specification conditions, evidence of conformity
       after calibration or verification, and data regarding the notification of the
       customer if suspect product has shipped as a result of an item in out-of
       specification condition.

       Measuring and monitoring devices are used and controlled to ensure that measurement
       capability is consistent with the measurement requirements. The environments of the
       calibration areas are controlled to maintain suitable conditions for the types of
       calibrations being performed.

       Where applicable, measuring and monitoring devices are:
       • calibrated or verified at specific intervals or prior to use, against measurement
         standards traceable to international or national measurement standards; where no
         such standards exist, the basis used for calibration and verification is recorded;
       • adjusted or re-adjusted as necessary; safeguarded from adjustments that would
         invalidate the calibration;
       • identified to enable calibration status to be determined;
       • safeguarded from adjustments that would invalidate the measurement results;
       • protected from damage and deterioration during handling, maintenance and storage;
       • recalled through a system which provides a listing of items due for recertification.

Honeywell                                                   Page 27 of 35
         Statistical studies are utilized to analyze the variation of each type of measuring
         and test equipment system.

         Internal and external laboratories which perform calibration, testing and
         inspection, have a documented scope which defines their capabilities to perform
         these services. Before utilizing an external laboratory, evidence is in place to
         demonstrate that either the customer accepted the lab or the lab is accredited to
         ISO/IEC 17025 or an equivalent national standard.

8 Measurement, Analysis, & Improvement (4.5 ISO 14001)

   8.1   General

         Management plans and implements monitoring, measurement, analysis, and
         improvement processes which ensure conformity and continuous improvement of the
         GMS, as well as conformity of products and services to requirements. Six Sigma Plus
         tools and the review and monitoring of targets are used to drive improvement of
         processes, products and the environment. During APQP, determination is made on
         the appropriate usage of statistical tools and is included in the control plan. Basic
         statistical tools are understood and use throughout the organisation.

   8.2   Measurement & Monitoring

         8.2.1   Customer Satisfaction

                 Management monitors the level of customer satisfaction and other information
                 relating to customers’ perception as to whether customer requirements are met
                 and appropriate actions are taken. Customer Satisfaction is also monitored
                 by evaluating PPM, customer disruptions, delivery performance including
                 premium freight costs, and notifications to customers regarding product
                 quality and delivery.       Product quality and the efficiency of the
                 manufacturing processes are monitored for compliance to customer

         8.2.2 Internal Audit (4.5.4 ISO 14001)

                 The organisation plans and documents internal audits which are used to assess
                 the effectiveness of the GMS, compliance to its requirements and identify
                 related opportunities for Continuous Improvement activities. Qualified
                 auditors conduct assessments to a wide variety of standards, such as ISO
                 9001, ISO 14001, AS9100 and TS 16949. When identified by customer
                 contract or regulatory requirements, internal audits are conducted in
                 accordance with those requirements. In addition to the effectiveness of the
                 GMS, audits are conducted at defined frequencies to verify compliance to
                 TS 16949 and customer specific quality requirements, effectiveness of the
                 manufacturing processes, and conformity of products, including product
                 dimensions, functionally, packaging and labelling, at appropriate phases of
                 production and delivery.

             •    the responsibilities and requirements for conducting assessments;
             •    ensuring the personnel conducting the quality & environmental system
                  assessments are independent of the functions being assessed;
             •    recording results; and
             •    reporting to appropriate management.

             When planning the audit program, consideration is given to the status and
             importance of the activities and areas to be assessed, as well as the results of
             previous assessments, internal and external nonconformities, and
             complaints. Internal audits cover all quality management processes and
             activities on all shifts. The assessment scope, frequency and methods are
             defined. Management takes timely corrective action on deficiencies found
             during the assessment. Follow-up actions include the verification of the
             implementation of corrective action, and the reporting of verification results.

             Checklists, process flowcharts and other similar tools are used to support the
             audit process in assessing the organisations performance and in assuring the
             completion of an effective internal audit.

             Nonconformities that affect the GMS globally are reported up to the Global
             Management Representative or their designee.

       8.2.3 Monitoring & Measurement of Processes (4.5.1 ISO 14001)

             The organisation defines, plans and implements appropriate monitoring and
             measurement activities to achieve planned performance. The performance is
             affected by the deployment, implementation, effectiveness, maintenance
             activities, and improvement of its processes. Local environmental legislation
             requirements will be monitored as required. Corrective action is taken when
             planned results are not achieved. In addition to taking corrective action on a
             process non-conformance, determination is made as to the possible effects on
             product conformity. Product nonconformity is addressed in accordance with
             QSGP 08.03, Nonconforming Material Procedure.

                 QSGP 08.03 Nonconforming Material Procedure

             Process studies are conducted and documented on new manufacturing
             processes. When characteristics are not statistically capable or are
             unstable, a reaction plan from the control plans is initiated. Records are
             maintained of the effective dates of process changes.

Honeywell                                                 Page 29 of 35
               Where environmental significant aspects are identified, processes are in place to
               monitor and measure these as a basis for continuous improvement. Each site
               will establish and maintain a procedure for periodically evaluating compliance
               with relevant environmental legislation and regulations.

       8.2.4   Monitoring & Measurement of Product

               The organisation establishes practices for monitoring, measuring and verifying
               that specified product requirements are met throughout the product realization
               process. Key Characteristics are monitored and controlled. Product control
               plans specify the need for completion of layout inspections and functional
               verifications to customer requirements and product performance

               Inspection procedures are developed which control sampling levels applied, in
               order to minimize risk and maximize benefits to our customers. Unless
               otherwise required by customer specifications, C=0 sampling is used for
               inspecting incoming material as well for final inspection on product. When
               required by customers, these plans are presented for their approval.

               No product is released until specified operations in the appropriate quality plan
               or other instructions are satisfactorily completed and verified.

               Inspection and testing requirements are contained in a variety of process and/or
               product documentation. Contained with the documentation is information
               • acceptance/rejection criteria;
               • identification of the point in the process which the inspection and testing
                   operations are completed;
               • records of the inspection and test results; and
               • information regarding the equipment/instruments used to perform the
                   inspection and testing operation.

               When required by the plan, inspection and test data is recorded and the record
               is maintained to demonstrate product compliance to requirements.

               The First Article Inspection process typically consists of verifying dimensions,
               characteristics, and weight of a sample or representative item for a product run
               for the first time or following significant changes which may affect the results
               from the prior First Article conducted. Additional First Article requirements
               may be included through agreement with customers.

   8.3 Control of Nonconformity (4.5.2 ISO 14001)

       The organisation ensures that materials which do not conform to requirements are
       identified and controlled to prevent unintended use or delivery. Suspect material or
       that whose status is unknown is treated as nonconforming material.

Honeywell                                                    Page 30 of 35
        The responsibilities for control of nonconforming materials are documented in QSGP
        08.03, Global Nonconforming Material Procedure. Site procedures define the process
        for approving personnel who review and approve the disposition of nonconforming

         QSGP 08.03 Nonconforming Material Procedure

        One or more of the following actions are taken when addressing nonconforming
        • eliminate the nonconformity;
        • authorisation to either use, release or accept under specified conditions, which may
           require approval by the customer as well; and
        • prohibit the use of the material for its original intent.

        Records of the nonconformity and the actions taken are generated and maintained.
        Approved documentation is available for the repair, rework, reclassification, or
        sort of material. Also included are instructions for re-inspection.

        “Use-as-is” or “repair” dispositions are not utilized without prior approval of the
        customer, except when the design is not under the control of the customer and the
        material continues to meet the customer specified requirements.

        Until scrap material is made physically unusable, it is controlled to prevent its
        unintended use. Control may be the obvious and permanent marking of the material as
        scrap or maintaining the scrap material under secure conditions.

        Upon detection of delivery of nonconforming material, interested parties are
        promptly notified.

        A customer waiver is required prior to the deviation from any approved process
        or product. Records related to terms of the waiver are maintained, and any
        material shipped under this waiver is appropriately identified.

   8.4 Analysis of data for improvement (4.5.1 ISO 14001)

        Relevant data is gathered and analysed to determine the suitability and effectiveness of
        the GMS and to evaluate where continuous improvements are needed. Data reviewed
        includes but is not limited to:
        • customer satisfaction;
        • conformance to product, service, or solution requirements;
        • characteristics and trends of processes, products and environment including
            opportunities for preventive action;
        • suppliers; and
        • quality and environmental objectives/targets.

        Actions are taken when results show that progress is not being made toward
        achievement of objectives.

   8.5 Improvement (4.2 ISO 14001)

       8.5.1 Continuous Quality & Environmental Improvement (4.3.4 ISO 14001)

            The organisation utilizes process improvement methodologies including those
            defined by Six Sigma Plus to continuously improve the effectiveness of the

            Continuous improvement is supported through the following elements:
            • quality & environmental policies;
            • quality & environmental objectives;
            • audit results;
            • analysis of data;
            • corrective and preventive action;
            • management review; and
            • Define Measure Analyse Improve Control (DMAIC) cycle used by Six Sigma

            The improvement of manufacturing processes focuses on the reduction of
            variation and it subsequent control.

       8.5.2 Corrective Action (4.5.2 ISO 14001)

              The organisation establishes and maintains problem solving procedures for
              eliminating the cause of nonconformities identified against their products,
              processes and environment to prevent reoccurrence. Reference QSGP 08.05.02,
              Global Corrective Action Procedures unless there is agreement with the
              customer to utilize another defined process. Procedures for the corrective
              action process will cover:
              • reviewing nonconformities (including customer complaints);
              • determining the causes of nonconformity (if root cause is identified as the
                  responsibility of a supplier, requirements for corrective action are flowed
                  down to the supplier);
              • evaluating the need for actions to ensure that nonconformities do not recur;
              • determining and implementing the action needed includes error-proofing;
              • recording results of action taken including those on similar products and
                  processes; and
              • reviewing corrective actions taken (if actions are not timely or effective,
                  additional actions are specified).
