- Tailor QMS-00 to display Company business info - find-and-replace the word "your" as required - skim the manual.
- In the Starter, Bare Minimum, Lean or Comprehensive Kit, open file named "faa-part-21-ac21-43-checklist.xls" then skim the contents in all spreadsheet tabs.
- Note each reference in the spreadsheet to QMS documents then skim the contents of referenced docs.
- In the Starter, Bare Minimum, Lean or Comprehensive Kit, open file named "schedule-to-qms-registration-rev-orig.doc" then prorate the dates to define your Company's improvement schedule.
The first management meeting should establish the goal of compliance to the QMS and its schedule. The Company can immediately demonstrate their commitment by sharing the tailored manual and schedule with Customers.
- Read QMS-00 and sequentially arrange and collect each document that it refers to.
- Skim each "collected doc" in sequential order and collect "other" referenced documents.
- Skim the "other" documents to complete a portion of the learning-curve.
Documents that have not been referenced are value-added and should be archived until you have a need for them.
- In the Starter, Bare Minimum, Lean or Comprehensive Kits, skim file named Quality Systems Assessment, Blank.
- In the Starter, Bare Minimum, Lean or Comprehensive Kits, skim file named Quality Systems Assessment, First-Half-Completed.
The Quality Representative needs to complete the second half or the assessment by referring to records that demonstrate compliance with questions. Evidence is not limited to records - use testimony from Employees or Suppliers or Customers.
- Add references to your existing records to complete the first half of the assessment.
- Complete the second half of the assessment.
- In parallel with steps 10 and 11, facilitate a management meeting to establish the goal of compliance with the new QMS and its schedule then facilitate meetings with Employees. Use form named management-meeting-report-rev-orig.doc to create meeting minutes. Try to record something in each section - especially closure of action items. Actions from management meetings should be tracked because they become evidence of "continuous improvement".
- In parallel with the QMS project, clean-up the facility using "5S":
Sort-Straighten-Shine-Standardize-Sustain. If desired, substitute "Straighten" with "Set-in-Order".
- Assert compliance with the QMS then make appropriate contacts with certification and/or regulatory authorities.
Certification of the ISO 9001 QMS is not mandatory but the Company needs to substantiate their assertions with records, such as the quality systems assessment.
Its no simple task to become the subject-matter-expert but that person is about to become priceless.
Does your Company need more than ISO 9001 in your business operation? Evaluate the Lean AS9100 Kit for FAA, which is the same price as the Lean ISO 9001 kit or browse the Comprehensive AS9100 Kit for FAA QMS that is appropriate for more mature businesses.
Actually, the AS9110 QMS kit is designed to meet stringent requirements for aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul. The FAA is confident about businesses that are compliant with AS9100 or ISO 9001 but hasn't yet warmed-up to AS9110...hum...?
Defined properly, a quality management system (QMS) is viewed as a system of processes. After identifying organizational support and product realization processes or departments that affect quality, a documented procedure or process map is helpful to understand their operation and interaction. In describing the organization's planned arrangements for processing, a myriad of content should be included in procedures describing each process or department affecting quality.
Click here to evaluate our process orientation checklist that can be used as an implementation guide to properly create procedures. Procedures will then satisfy the intent of the latest industry standards by describing the interaction of QMS processes. Until the QMS is viewed as a system of interacting processes, procedures that are written to simply comply with industry standards will fail to properly define processes.
The traditional approach to quality system management has confused practitioners that are used to "compliance to requirements". The traditional standards-based approach will prevent proper application of the latest industry standards and diminish the return on investment in the PDCA cycle to continuously improve the QMS and its processes. Once processes are properly identified and defined, the PDCA cycle can then be effectively applied to drive improvement in the processes and in the QMS.
We're here to support your FAA quality management system improvement project with our full attention and we know we will enable you to quickly find a quality plan that will allow you to proceed with your next action item.
