Quality Management System

A quality management system (QMS) is a set of policies, processes and procedures required for planning and execution (production/development/service) in the core business area of an organization. (i.e. areas that can impact the organization’s ability to meet customer requirements.)
Some people generically refer to the group of documents as a QMS, but specifically it refers to the entire system – the documents just describe it. A QMS is nothing more than good business sense.

This demo will show you what a documented ISO 9001 Quality Management System (QMS) looks like and how the documents all flow together.

A QMS integrates the various internal processes within the organization and intends to provide a process approach for project execution. A Process Based QMS enables the organizations to identify, measure, control and improve the various core business processes that will ultimately lead to improved business performance.

A complete ISO 9001 Quality Management System must address all the requirements of ISO 9001, and more specifically must meet the ISO 9001 Documentation Requirements.

The Concept of Quality Management

  • A Quality Management System in its basic concept is quite simple. It seeks to: Recognize the external quality related requirements specified in Licenses to Trade, guidelines, specified customer requirements, and the chosen management system standard(s)
  • Ensure that all requirements have been documented within the management system in the appropriate location in terms of defined specific system requirements
  • Confirm that employees receive applicable training in the quality system requirements
  • Outline performance processes, where applicable, to the quality system requirements
  • Produce records or evidence that system requirements have been met
  • Measure, monitor and report the extent of compliance with these performance procedures
  • Continually monitor and analyze changes to the requirements and confirm that all changes are reflected in changes to the specific requirements when necessary
  • Execute the audit and analyze the system processes and correct them when necessary
  • Include processes that will help continually improve the quality system.
