Quality Management Systems

Managing the quality aspects of any business by implementing an effective Quality Management System (QMS) is just plain good business sense.

Managing the quality aspects of any business by implementing an effective Quality Management System (QMS) is just plain good business sense. At its core a quality management system is an integrative element, uniting diverse aspects of a company into a unified purpose of delivering products/services in their best form. Rather than be seen as a cost burden, an effective quality management system is viewed as key element of success.

8 Key Elements

Quality management systems have eight key elements:
1. Customer Focus

Organizations can establish this focus by trying to understand and meet their customers’ current and future requirements and expectations.

2, Leadership

Organizations succeed when leaders establish and maintain the internal environment in which employees can become fully involved in achieving the organization’s unified objectives.

3. Involvement of people

Organizations succeed by retaining competent employees, encouraging continuous enhancement of their knowledge and skills, and empowering them, encouraging engagement and recognizing achievements.

4. Process approach

Organizations enhance their performance when leaders manage and control their processes, as well as the inputs and outputs that tie these processes together.

5. System approach to management

Organizations sustain success when processes are managed as one coherent quality management system.

6. Continuous improvement

Organizations will maintain current levels of performance, respond to changing conditions, and identify, create and exploit new opportunities when they establish and sustain an ongoing focus on improvement.

7. Factual approach to decision making

Organizations succeed when they have established an evidence-based decision making process that entails gathering input from multiple sources, identifying facts, objectively analysing data, examining cause/effect, and considering potential consequences.

8. Mutually beneficial supplier relationship

Organizations that carefully manage their relationships with suppliers and partners can nurture positive and productive involvement, support and feedback from those entities.

SAFCOM Risk Management were recommended to us by a large Engineering company called OJG Engineering.
