7.3.4 Design and Development Review
NOTE: There are no new requirements in Design and Development Review from the 1994 version.
Also see: 7.3.1 and 4.2.4
This is where a lot of companies fall down. During the design and development review process you need to pause to check that everything is on track, you can still fulfill requirements, and identify problems to get them out of the way (think feasibility). This is normally done on a regular basis on large-scale projects (say weekly). In the manufacturing world it takes discipline to do this. It is rarely done enough in the world of services. This revision of ISO 9001 will make it more difficult for service industries to avoid addressing the design of their services.
