At AIKOKU ALPHA, the foundational principle of our quality assurance activities is the 16.5 Oath, which is based on consistency control through the Alpha Production System.
To provide highly reliable products, we are continually working to improve the effectiveness of our quality management system to ensure that our specification sheets, standards, and other regulations meet customer demands.

The16.5 Oath is the result of efforts to improve our operations following a quality incident in the 1960’s. This oath serves as the foundation for our CF Division Quality Policy.

  • • The manager of each related department is required to use this manual to set up a quality management system for the tasks they oversee, establish clear quality requirements, and reliably carry out operations in a way that satisfies quality regulations.
  • • Our quality assurance activities begin with a discussion on specifications. These activities are constructed in a way that allows us to implement and verify all quality-related tasks in each stage of the production process (manufacturing development, manufacturing itself, and delivery). Still, it is the individuals that actually carry out the work and the organization itself that are responsible for achieving the required level of quality.
  • • We have a quality assurance departmental manager who is responsible for overseeing the quality management system and is given the authority and responsibility to ensure that the requirements outlined in the quality manual are being properly maintained and carried out. Managers from other departments cannot undermine the QA manager’s authority over matters that affect quality in the CF Division.
