My background is in QS-9000 but I think the following thoughts apply to general business planning as well as to ISO/QS-9000.

The business plan is used to document company goals and expectation. As a means to determine if these goals and expectations are met we use company level data. We usually use the well used term "Key Measureables".

These key measureable form a major part of element 4.1 (Management Review). The measureables document that company goals and expectations are tracked and that the current quality system is suitable and effective.

I don't know your tier level or if you are even in the automotive field, but calibrations need to be performed by labs that are accredited (registered?) to ISO-17025 lab guidelines and that all calibrations are traceable to "national Standards".

I believe this area of ISO/QS/TS is in minor chaos and am waiting for the dust to settle and have some more definitive directions.

Looking forward to more input!

I like the clear explanation.

can you show me a brief example?

quality objective is part of the company goal? if it is,quality system would involve a lot.

how does the company data work? use benchmarking and update the goal?

Al,

Why do you have to have calibration done by a 'registered lab'? We don't use one.

Our in-house calibration dept. leaves some 'registered labs' looking a bit sick.

Geoff,

Perhaps I should use the term "accredited" instead of registered lab, whether it be internal or external. In the case of automotive, I know that the customer (or their approved second-party) may choose to assess a lab to ensure it meets Guide 25 guidelines.

I agree with you that there are some suspect labs out there and we are currently setting up our own lab that will be accredited to ISO-17025. If you have any tips on setting up such a lab I would be grateful for any input.

Each company is different in how they address calibration. If you're just calibrating a few instruments in-house you're probably not going to have a lab per se. But you have to have calibration records, calibration instructions, etc. You will need, I believe, a statement of scope of the calibrations you do. Basically you do have to meet the Guide 25 requirements.

You asked:

You do realize this is the QS 9000 forum, don't you?

I agree with Al's comments in regard to this.

QS-9000 is ISO 9001 PLUS a bunch of FORD, GM and Chrysler requirements (such as the business plan requirement). QS-9000 is really a customer requirement - it is not an international specification.

>clause are not additional requirement

Wrong -- The additional stuff QS 9000 has that ISO 9001 doesn't have are indeed requirements.

I guess the business plan requirement is something they decided was a 'basic' business requirement.
