7 PRODUCT REALIZATION
7.1 Planning of Product Realization
Also see: 5.4.1
The product is either a physical product, software, a process, or a service. In section 7.1 we look at the requirements for planning the realization of your product. Therefore, the actual method will be greatly affected by the type of product you produce. For example, a bank provides mostly services. They would plan the process of delivering the service.
In most cases, you begin with a Quality Plan. This is the same type of Quality Plan called for in TS 16949. You need to flowchart the realization of your product through time and tasks. To this you add the quality objectives, verification methods, criteria for acceptance, and the records to be maintained. Throughout, the goal is to assure yourself that the objectives are being met and the product you intended is the product you produced.
