For manufacturing companies, quality control and customer satisfaction are the two most important metrics of success.
ISO 9001 is the most widely used standard of quality worldwide, as applicable for large, global enterprises as it is for a corner store.
When implemented in letter and spirit, an ISO 9001 certification is not just proof of high quality. It is also evidence of your company’s commitment to maintaining that high level of quality, no matter where it operates and no matter the products or services it provides.
At Barile Consulting Services, our expert ISO consulting & certification services enable manufacturing companies to reap the benefits of ISO 9001.
ISO 9001 and the Manufacturing Industry
As ISO certification consultants will tell you, these are just some of the tools that the ISO 9001:2015 standard provides your manufacturing company:
1. A Clearly Specified Process
By meeting the requirements of Clauses 6 through 9, your company can come up with a clear, well-defined process. From the early stages of planning to evaluating results and identifying areas of improvement, ISO 9001 optimizes your internal processes entirely.
2. Competent Staff
Section 7 of the standard deals with ‘Support’, and requires you to ensure your employees are well-trained, knowledgeable and competent enough to produce your products. By meeting its requirements, you can help your employees reach their full potential.
3. Corrective Actions
Section 10 of the standard, focusing on nonconformity and corrective actions, guides you on using your Quality Management System properly. Not just for preventing mistakes, but also for understanding the root cause of the mistake and taking steps to stop it from happening again.
4. Quality Checks
There is a particular emphasis in ISO 9001 on quality and quality controls. However, the standard doesn’t just improve quality through better controls. It also requires you to review those checks for effectiveness and make sure you correct them as needed.
