Quality Management System
Phoenix has formalized our processes and systems in accordance with ISO 9001, an internationally recognized quality management system standard. Through the principles of PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act), Phoenix has created an environment that is focused on continuous improvement in all aspects of our business. This management system approach not only focuses on documentation of our key processes but also ensures our people are held accountable to Phoenix's established best practices. Our performance is measured and evaluated at every turn. A few core aspects of our quality management system include:
Quality planning activities are performed to ensure client requirements are clearly defined and communicated. Training programs and procedures that exist within our management system support field, shop and office activities.
Quality assurance is a key component of Phoenix's quality management system as we take a methodical approach to building processes that deliver reliable and predictable outcomes. Our quality assurance activities also involve our Supply Chain Department to clearly outline our expectations and quality requirements to our vendors in a planned and proactive manner. Other departments contribute to our quality goals and objectives through controlled operations, optimization initiatives, engineering and sustaining activities, calibration and maintenance of equipment, integrated software platforms and numerous other internal initiatives.
Quality control includes a rigorous inspection program comprised of: incoming, in-process, final inspection and testing. Criteria and tolerances have been established to maximize reliability of our tools in the field. Phoenix developed in-house software to track and manage servicing activities that make us more efficient and allow for better decisions relating to our fleet. Quality requirements that do not meet our specifications are managed through our non-conformance reporting process.
Improvement tools have been formalized within our quality management system including corrective and preventive actions, internal auditing, management review meetings, analysis of data, and management of our objectives. Measuring our performance and creating improvement plans in each area of the business is part of our routine. Phoenix has created a culture that fosters participation at all levels or the organization while we strive for unparalleled reliability and industry-leading service levels.
To deliver unmatched solutions, Phoenix understands that we must equip ourselves with state-of-the-art resources designed specifically for this purpose. With this vision Phoenix built two facilities that promote superior performance and advanced services.
The 120,000 sq ft operations centers in Houston, TX and Calgary, AB were built by Phoenix from the ground up to facilitate quality control and collaborative project management, empowering our people to provide you a superior level of service.
Quality control in all processes is paramount to ensuring you receive the most reliable equipment that outperforms in the most challenging applications. Understanding this we designed our facilities with the 5S principles in mind, creating efficiency and control by design.
This quality control environment is enhanced with advanced equipment typically reserved for equipment manufacturing companies, rather than service providers. Both the Houston and Calgary facilities are equipped with:
Phoenix facilities are an INDISPENSIBLE TOOL
in delivering reliable and unique drilling solutions
Extensive motor fleet testing/pre-qualifying capabilities
On-site dynamometer (Houston facility)
Industry-leading MWD quality assurance testing
Sophisticated optimization and remote drilling center
