I work in the QA dept of a small (10 people) aerospace tool company and for the last few years our Surveillance audits have been 1-2.5 days depending on recert, etc. However, we have been talking about adding a new member to our team which would take our total employees up to 11. My question: is there any way to avoid adding an entire day to the audit process which would be completely unnecessary based on the nature of the new employee's work. Is this threshold set by the CB or is it set by another governing body? thanks for any help you guys can offer.
