Ensuring Component Authenticity through
OUR A+ SMART Quality-Control Process
Setting quality standard in
electronic components distribution
Whether you’re in consumer electronics or a high-reliability vertical, the viability of your products — and business — depend on quality electronic components. That’s why A2 Global’s benchmark for all procurement practices and inspection criteria exceed industry standards and customer requirements. Our proprietary quality-control process, A+ SMART Quality Standard, and advanced counterfeit-detection technology ensure the integrity of every electronic component we distribute.

A+ SMART QUALITY-CONTROL PROCESS
The broader the sourcing network, the more rigorous the quality-control should be. That’s why A2 Global developed an industry-leading methodology, to which all our suppliers and their components are subject. We call it our A+ SMART Quality-Control Process.
Our suppliers are subject to a formal qualification process, including high-risk screening (utilizing GIDEP as well as other industry organizations), assigning supplier classifications, supplier type, and product inspection.
Using a risk-based inspection approach, we measure our supply chain partners performance as well as the products they supply. Our inspection process includes up to a 60+ point visual inspection, while our supply chain partners are subject to real time performance monitoring. This data is then captured and reviewed by our Supplier Review Board.
The results from Supplier Review Board meetings, inspection and test, and QMS goals and objectives, are evaluated to identify inconsistencies in processes, products, and services. This strategic analysis promotes continuous improvement to enhance our overall performance, meet customer requirements, and address their future needs and expectations.
Transparency is paramount in a good distributor/manufacturer relationship. As a leader in the industry, it is our social responsibility to share our extensive knowledge, experience, and findings with our customers and strategic partners. Reporting allows A2 Global to develop qualifications, standards, and certifications needed to mitigate risk for our customer’s protection.
A2 Global takes action to ensure we provide the best products and services in the industry.
