NDT Program Gap Assessment

How effective is your NDT Program?

Do you know what the current state of your NDT Program is today, and where you want it to be? You may already have some possible ideas in mind. However, before you can move forward, you may want an unbiased opinion from a third-party expert; one with the proper credentials and experience that can identify the best solution that meets your NDT Program objectives. With our exclusive NDT Program Gap Assessment, the experts at Quality Testing Services, Inc. can help you answer those questions, and provide solutions to bridge the gaps in your NDT Program.

For over two decades, Quality Testing Services, Inc. has been providing quality solutions for our customers’ nondestructive testing programs. Our Quality System is built upon a strong foundation by meeting the requirements for: FAA approved Repair Station, Nadcap™ Accredited Nondestructive Testing Lab, Nadcap™ Accredited Aerospace Quality System (AC7004), and ISO/IEC 17025, A2LA Accredited Calibration Laboratory. Our team of NDT consultants are ASNT Certified Level 3 inspectors, each with years of experience and broad industry knowledge.

Our NDT Program Gap Assessment service was developed to help you analyze your current NDT Program, identify where you want your NDT Program to be in the future, and determine what steps need to be taken to advance it from its current state to your desired, future state. We analyze your NDT Program and step you through the process so you can determine what you need to do to bridge the gap(s) and reach your future objectives.

To do this, we help you identify the objectives you want to achieve, analyze your quality requirements and review your NDT Program procedures, written practice, techniques and personnel qualification records. Then we compare them to the industry standard(s) best practices with the processes currently in place in your organization. Once we identify your current state and future objectives, we can help determine the “gaps” between your organization’s existing practices and the identified best practices and help you plot a course to meet your objectives for a successful future.

For our NDT Program Gap Assessment, we follow these basic three steps:

  • 1. Identify Your Future State, where you want to be

    We help you identify the objectives that you want to achieve with your NDT Program. This gives you your future state – or the “point” where you want to be once you’ve completed your NDT Program Gap Assessment.

  • 2. Analyze Your Current NDT Program

    For each of your NDT Program objectives, we help analyze your current state. To do this, we may consider the following type of questions:

    • Who has the knowledge that we need to speak with to get a good picture of your current NDT Program?
    • Is the information documented somewhere, or in people’s heads?
    • What’s the best way to acquire this information?
      • By using brainstorming workshops?
      • Through one-to-one interviews?
      • By reviewing documents?
      • By observing work activities?
      • Or in some other way?
  • 3. Identify How to Bridge the Gap

    Once your NDT Program future state and your current state is known, we can help you determine what you need to do to bridge the gap(s) to reach your NDT Program objectives.

    Upon conclusion of our NDT Program Gap Assessment, we provide your project team with a comprehensive report and briefing, detailing the following:

    • An understanding of the differences between your current NDT Program practices and industry standard(s) best practice.
    • Identification of the Gap(s) between your current state and the future state that you want to reach.
    • An assessment of the barriers that need to be addressed before successful implementation of best practices can be achieved.
    • A summary of tasks that you will need to address to close the gap.

At Quality Testing Services, we pride ourselves on providing objective, thorough, and reliable NDT Program Gap Assessment to ensure a comprehensive assessment of your NDT Program procedures, documentation, and compliance to applicable regulatory standards or requirements.
