Hello All...I joined this forum a while back and now I'm back in a QMR role. My company is currently developing our QMS for ISO 9001:2015. One of the basic definitions we're struggling with is the definition of our business (production, assembly, installation...).

We design visual display systems for the simulation industry to our customers statement of work and technical requirements documents (flight sims primarily). We then purchase outsourced product and assemble the visual display systems at the customers site. Our system is integrated into the simulators IGs and cockpit. We do not provide the cockpit or the IG content. We do use software to calibrate and blend multiple projectors.

We know what we do but are having a hard time determining the definition. Are we a producer, assembler, integrator?

Thanks in advance for your input...

I would think you are a designer (you state that you "design visual display systems" and producer (the system you produce is then put into something larger).

A company that designs and produces brakes for cars, is a producer even though they do not make the whole car.

Just my humble 2 cents.

I'd suggest a "scope" of the QMS (and certification) would the "The design and integration of Visual Display Systems for simulators" K.I.S.S.

FWIW...I would add the additional things you do while still keeping it simple.

The design, integration, installation and support of Visual Display Systems.

Still high level, but encompasses all that you do.
