An AAR M-1003 Certified Process
Our AAR M-1003 quality assurance certification creates transparency and a system of checks and balances. It provides our clients with the confidence that Herzog strictly conforms to AAR-industry standards, specifications, rules, practices, and federal regulatory requirements.
We closely audit and document all contract activities including design, procurement, manufacturing, and testing to help us maintain traceability to vendors for parts and materials, as well as to the technicians on the floor who performed the work. Clients are sent weekly reports on the status of their repair.
Herzog receives an in-route order from a client detailing damage or maintenance required. A specialist schedules the equipment for repair and routes it to the appropriate service location.
Herzog technicians perform a thorough physical inspection and generate an estimate detailing the scope of work, labor, and price.
After the repairs have been identified and approved, we order any replacement parts (reconditioned or new) and materials we don’t already have on-site from AAR-approved suppliers.
Repair & Testing
Once repairs, modifications, and testing are complete, the technician and supervisor prepare the equipment for final inspection.
Quality Control Inspection
Our quality assurance inspector checks that we have performed each work order line item and meets the criteria our client has laid out. Our client is notified and the equipment is set out on track for pickup.
When new rules become the industry standard, you can count on Herzog to have the knowledge and resources to keep your railcars in service.
Herzog’s preventative maintenance program keeps your rail cars in top condition.
