VI Engineering completes successful CSIA audit

System integrator VI Engineering reports that it recently earned Level 1 Registered Member status from the Control and Information System Integrators Association (CSIA).


System integrator VI Engineering reports that it recently earned Level 1 Registered Member status from the Control and Information System Integrators Association (CSIA). Membership is earned by complying with CSIA’s performance standards, and confirmed by a comprehensive third-party audit. Following their process and documentation review, auditors awarded VI Engineering a score well above the required minimum, and only 8% below a perfect score.

The program assures industrial customers that CSIA’s registered members adhere to best practices in the areas of general management, financial management, project management, quality management, human resources, and business development. Believing that "being a good system integrator goes hand in hand with operating a good business," CSIA groups integrators into three levels based on company size and sales history. The most diligently scrutinized is Level 1, while Levels 2 and 3 have less stringent requirements.

VI’s team leader, Mark Williams, was responsible for coordinating its audit preparation efforts. "Some documentation needed updates, but since we’ve been advocating professional software engineering practices through our Vista program for some years, most of the CSIA requirements are our standard procedures," says Williams.

Robert Jacobs, VI’s president, adds that, "We’re very pleased to be recognized by CSIA, since our underlying business philosophy has always focused on the best and most efficient processes for delivering customer solutions."

VI provides information management and automated test systems to OEMs and suppliers in the life sciences, U.S. Department of Defense, and automotive industries. It also supplies process consulting, turnkey test applications, software programming, and advanced LabView user training to more than 500 clients worldwide.
