IRIS Newsletter - 1st issue - April 2012

IRIS has very recently released its first newsletter: ‘’The Quality Rail Journal.’’

From now on, The Quality Rail Journal will be published every 3 months and will touch upon many interesting topics. It is not only IRIS and quality news that will be addressed in this newsletter, the scope of this newsletter is very wide; ranging from interviews with interesting people, to a welcome to our new customers, customer testimonials, impressive railway figures, and more.

In particular, this very first edition contains some very interesting articles concerning many influential people in the rail sector.  The foreword is presented to you by Mr Philippe Citroën – Director General of UNIFE, the European Rail Industry, who will present his views on IRIS and quality management. The IRIS Management Centre will be shortly introduced to you, in order to get to know the people who manage the quality scheme a little better.

Furthermore, we conducted an interview with Mr Philippe Crauste, Vice President of Quality at Bombardier (and a former employee of Airbus), who reveals his views on quality management in the rail sector.

Moreover, the journal contains a detailed employee profile of Mr Bernard Kaufmann – IRIS General Manager, in which he shares his views on the rail sector in general and its quality issues in particular.

Besides the articles concerning these interesting people and their views on quality within the rail sector, the newsletter contains many more topics. IRIS welcomes everyone who would like to read about a wide range of topics concerning IRIS in specific and rail quality in general to have a look in The Quality Rail Journal.

The newsletter has been digitally distributed to stakeholders, is located in printed versions in the UNIFE office and can be found on the IRIS Portal, in the download area, attached to this information.

The IRIS Management Centre has high hopes that stakeholders in the rail industry will value The Quality Rail Journal.
