Hi Everyone - I have been reading in the background for some time now and wanted to say hello. My employer has tasked me with implementing a QMS at one of our locations. Currently the company has about a half dozen locations, 80% of which are already registered to 9001:2015 as single-sites. Each site has a slightly different scope dependent on the type of equipment at the specific location. The site in question is very small (A few employees - who will also be instrumental in this QMS) supported by the corporate team (that I am a part of). I have about 8 years of experience in the industry however I have never held a QA role. The "easy" thing to do would be to sift through each locations QMS and pull the "best" documents from each together to form this new QMS...I don't want to do that, and I think a few here will agree. After thoroughly analyzing each locations QMS I have determined that (for the most part) it is a system of documentation and not a documented system. There is a lot of standard "Parroting" and I know for a fact many things are created for the auditor. I grabbed an ISO 9001:2015 Project Work-plan someone uploaded to the forum, I have purchased ISO 9001:2015 In Plain English (currently in the mail), and I am ready to dive in. I hope we can create a QMS that can be looked at as the new future standard. I am sure I will have many questions along the way and look forward to all of the insight this forum can offer. Cheers.
