Adoption of ISO 3834 as a Welding Management System is not just about ensuring welders and welding procedures and NDT operators are qualified, albeit these are important aspects nonetheless; it expresses the need to take into account all aspects of manufacture. In doing so and, by identifying tasks, responsibilities, appointing welding coordination personnel, the full potential of the organisation will be realised. In turn this also makes the limitations of the organisation become apparent thus identifying other needs, such as training or re training and areas which need improvement in order to meet the standard.
It is considered that in this respect, the manufacturing organisation will develop a more effective mind-set for achieving the required welding quality and thereby improve its efficiency. Adoption of ISO 3834 can bring about distinct benefits to the manufacture, his employees and also the end user.
A recent European survey carried out amongst the Manufacturers who have already implemented ISO 3834 has revealed that 85% of the respondents have found the scheme to have many managerial advantages in keeping the fabrication process under control and also have found this to enhance quality and money saving. In the same survey 45% of the respondents have been able to quantify savings in their fabrication cost.
These can be summarised as follows:
Benefits to the end user
Benefits to the manufacturer
Benefits to the employees
