A Principle in the quality management system called “leadership principle”, that is, the leaders need to establish the purpose and direction of the organization, which is commonly known as the quality policies and quality objectives. In the field of manufacturing, it is the standard that may unifiedly measure the product quality objectives.
A research done by Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development reveals that standards and product conformity assessment affect 80% of global investment and trade, and technical standards may promote the economic globalization and investment facilitation. For a long time, 95% of the revision of the international standard system has been led by developed countries such as Europe and the united States. The Core technical standards related to the crane design and safety are controlled by countries such as the United States and Germany all the year round. If Chinese crane manufacturers intend to be led by the nose, they must catch up and have a voice to speak of international standards. As a leader in China’s construction crane industry, XCMG has made great efforts to promote the development of the crane industry. It is committed to actively working on the development of domestic and international standards, and has contributed the “XCMG smartness”, which represents the quality level of China’s construction cranes.
In 2008, XCMG Hoisting Machinery was approved by the National Standardization Management Committee to assume the work of the secretariat of the Sub-Technical Committee for mobile cranes. It successfully organized the national Sub-Technical Committee for mobile cranes and organized the development of the national standards for mobile cranes.
From the formulation of five national standards such as Cranes - Graphical Symbols Part 2: Mobile Cranes as the sole drafting unit, to the hosting of the formulation of All terrain crane National Standards which passed the acceptance examination by the national standardization authority and was implemented nationwide, to the successful establishment of China’s first international standard project for the safe use of mobile cranes...... Over the years, XCMG Hoisting Machinery, ranking first in China and third in the world for mobile cranes, has organized the revision of two thirds of the national and industry standards in the field of mobile cranes.
From the beginning of drafting to organizing the development of national standards, from participating in revision to leading the development of international standards and filling in the gaps of China enterprises in the field of international standards, XCMG Hoisting Machinery has become an ice breaker and promoter in the field of industrial standard development, and has demonstrated China’s confidence in quality on the world stage.
The development of the quality management system is a process of steady growth, which cannot be accomplished in a single day. The five internationally recognized standards include the entry level, acceptance level, consistency assurance level, continuous improvement level and excellence level. When other China companies have only reached the second and third stages that are initially acceptable, XCMG Hoisting Machinery has already achieved the fourth stage that may persistently improve its own system.
Today, when we comb a complete set of quality management system from the perspective of the reviewer, we will find that XCMG Hoisting Machinery is present at every page that determines the quality of products-what we see is XCMG cranes efforts, exploration and pursuit of perfection in four seemingly unrelated links such as design, manufacturing, application and standards. What we cannot see is yet an invisible but powerful product QA system that has been established based on this. In this process, XCMG Hoisting Machinery navigates in difficulties, refines in piloting, and gains in refining. This is its outstanding point and its greatness.
History will remember the name of the pioneers.
