I'm responsible for determing/implementing/maintaining the QMS at my company. It is a new position for me and the company. I'm trying to determine which Standard is the most appropriate for my company and its customers. My company designs and builds custom gages and fixtures for the aerospace and power generation industries (mainly). One of our largest aerospace customers is flowing down compliance with AS9003. I've heard conflicting information about the long-term viability of this Standard, but even more importantly, I'm concerned that this may not best serve the bigger picture for my company's quality and continuous improvement objectives, as well as all or most of our customer base. We are a small firm, and I want to responsibly determine and implement the system that not only satisfies our internal/external customers today, but can also live/breath/grow with us. Conversely, I don't want to handcuff us to something "more than" we need. If anyone can offer their professional insight/opinion/advice, I'd certainly appreciate hearing from you. Thanks.
