The integration of ITAR into our manufacturing programMay 22, 2023
Intrex Aerospace has long been a provider of precision machined parts for military applications. We have an experienced staff with knowledge and systems expertise to oversee the successful implementation of military applications. We can provide machined components for DOD applications with the accompanying certifications/documentation necessary for most government requirements. Our modern 75,000 sq. ft. facility, with state-of-the-art equipment, is ISO 9001, AS 9100 certified and ITAR registered. We deliver the highest quality parts on time. We can provide a completely integrated single-source machining solution for commercial and military applications.
What is ITAR?
One of the requirements for providing most DOD work is that you are ITAR compliant. A short definition for ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) is a “United States regulatory regime to restrict and control the export of defense and military-related technologies to safeguard U.S. national security and further U.S. foreign policy objective.”
One of the requirements for ITAR is that your company must be able to track ITAR data at all times. They must also know what data is being protected under ITAR, where that data is located, and who has access to the data.
Why register with ITAR?
ITAR requires that any defense manufacturing company that engages in furnishing defense services registers keeps its registration current with the Department of State, which maintains the goal of safeguarding national security and furthering foreign policy objectives.
ITAR compliance ensures data protection of sensitive government information and mitigates the risk of any non-compliance with regulations or civil fines.
What are the benefits of ITAR?
ITAR compliance ensures data protection of sensitive government information and mitigates the risk of any non-compliance with regulations or civil fines
Can a non-US citizen work on ITAR?
The answer is No unless an appropriate export license has been obtained from the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls. The International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) mandates that access to physical materials or technical data related to defense and military technologies are restricted to US persons only.
Integrating Our Program Management for Military Applications
Intrex Aerospace offers a complete program management service. This service goes beyond supplying and providing machined parts. We have integrated our program management services into our ERP/MRP system. We can monitor and manage all facets of the manufacturing process, from sourcing raw materials to shipping out our door. Everything is monitored and documented.
We have an experienced, trained staff to support the most demanding requirements of our supply chain partners. Customer input and communication are constant. We pride ourselves on our customer relationships and understanding their needs. Our ISO 9001:2000, AS9100 certifications and ITAR registration are a testimony to our commitment to providing our customers with the most efficient, professional, and dedicated level of service.
Our robust Epicor ERP/MRP systems software oversees our entire manufacturing process. We monitor all phases of the shop-floor flow. To meet delivery requirements, we can make manufacturing schedule decisions when allowed access to our customers’ forecasting portal. Through it, we control:
- Sourcing raw material
- Forecasting monitoring of our supplier portals
- Part scheduling
- Provide Engineering support
- Kanban Pull Systems
- Recognition and response to AOG’s
- DX/DO requirements
- Special process scheduling/management
- Quality assurance & reporting/documentation
- Packaging & Shipment
Because of the efficiencies gained by utilizing our program management system, we have been able to achieve OTDs of 98%+ and PPMs of <75 consistently. The types of systems controls we have in place also help reduce overall delivered costs.
