Controlling Instruments

About half the approximately 360 WACKER IMS regulations govern processes for plant, workplace and product safety, environmental protection, and occupational health and safety.

All our processes are designed to give customers complete satisfaction, fulfill our social responsibilities, and ensure WACKER’s competitiveness via sustainable and efficient business practices. The way in which these goals are achieved can vary from site to site. At Siltronic’s Portland site (Oregon, USA), for example, a very effective Quality and Value Improvement System uses a wide range of control mechanisms – such as balanced scorecards, and special instruments for developing, prioritizing and tracking action plans. So that employees can view action plans and success rates at any time, the site makes this information available both in a database and on a bulletin board.
