Manufacturing Organizations

The overriding objective of a quality system is to meet or exceed customer requirements in the most cost effective manner.  This is accomplished through a system which by definition includes all activities necessary to assure confidence in the quality of the process used to produce a product or service.

The ISO 9001 standard is a systematic way in which we can make sure we get it right consistently.

  • It is not the best you could be….,
  • It is the least bad you should be.

The ISO 9001 standard is a minimum standard.  In addition to a Quality Manual and Quality Policy, it requires a minimum of six procedures.

  1. Control of Documents
  2. Control of Records
  3. Internal Audits
  4. Control of Non Conforming Product
  5. Corrective Action
  6. Preventative Action
