✔ EXPERIENCED TEAM | The Right People

Stratosphere Quality executes an entire launch support team to ease the burden on your internal resources. We provide Site Operations Managers, Supervisors, and Team Leaders.

Site Operations Managers

  • Serve as one point of contact
  • Oversee that all aspects of the program are running efficiently

Team Leaders

  • Manage 4-6 person teams
  • Assist with the setup and compliance to work instructions

✔ MINIMAL DISRUPTION | An Effective Process

Whether a launch requires line-side or warehouse support, Stratosphere Quality will:

  • Separate and track defective units and keep the sequencer manager aware of defect percentage.
  • Inform the Team Leaders of how many defects are found.
  • Inform the Team Leaders immediately of a high fallout rate.
  • Sort product during lunch time as well as between shifts to ensure no line downtime.
  • Provide information to the PQ Engineer.
  • Suggest moving the sort off-site, if needed, to avoid shipping defective product into the plant.
