    Abstract

    Just-in-time manufacturing principles require that quality assurance of components and materials supplied to the manufacturers be performed by the suppliers. This paper describes the evolution of a program developed by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) to accredit these supplier laboratories in such a way that their test results will be recognized by a number of different manufacturers using the just-in-time manufacturing philosophy.
