I need some advice. I recently started working for a small (25 people) manufacturing company as the the Quality Coordinator. The owner wants to begin working on ISO 9001:2015 certification. This is something he has been trying to do for the last couple of years and has it just really never progressed. Here is were I need advise. To my knowledge, none of the customers require traceability. So my concern is probably more with identification. Material comes in. I go find it and put a green move card with the part number, quantity and heat treat number. Then I fill out the next operation go tell that person. They do their part... date and initial and tell the next person and so on. They have routing instructions somewhere in a file. Routings routinely get changed.... quanaties are never right...the cards are scribbled on with writing you can bearly read. Stuff is scratched out. Then the cards are thrown away once the product ships. It just seem like an odd system. If I mention any kind of change.... the old timers jump all over me and tell me that's how they have done it for the last 30 years and never had a problem with it. I have been a certified ISO 17025 auditor. I have work with NADCAP and AS9100... so maybe I'm being a little to strict with my thoughts on this. Maybe the green cards are ok (even though there is obviously an issue) and I should stop pushing for change. Your thoughts?
