Controlling Instruments

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

All our processes are designed to keep customers satisfied, meet our obligations to society, and to secure WACKER’s competitiveness. Each of our sites achieves these goals in different ways. At Siltronic’s Portland site (Oregon, USA), a very effective “Quality and Value Improvement System” uses a wide range of control mechanisms – such as balanced scorecards, and systems for developing, prioritizing and tracking action plans. So that employees can view action plans and success rates at any time, Portland publishes them in a database and on a bulletin board.
