A Quality Management System (QMS) is a set of formalized policies, processes, and procedures that companies use to consistently meet customer requirements and satisfaction.
A QMS is aligned to a company's goals, purpose, and strategic direction. While each framework differs by industry and sector, the most popular approach is the ISO 9000, which is the international standard that specifies requirements for quality management systems. Additional standards include AS, Nadcap, IATF, and TS.
A quality management system helps define, improve, and control processes; reduce waste; prevent mistakes; lower costs; engage staff; identify training opportunities; and communicate the ability to produce consistent results. Its structure is based on the plan-do-check-act (PDCA) cycle, which facilitates continuous improvement to both the product and the system.
Establishing a QMS impacts every aspect of an organization's performance. For this reason, it's critical that the proper quality management system is designed and implemented correctly the first time.
ERC offers multiple training courses to assist businesses in the development of an effective and efficient system.
