Hi guys. I've been very thankful to have this forum as a resource the past few months. I have a small (15 person) machine shop that manufactures small arms, defense related small parts that I'm having to plan and implement ISO 9001:2015 certification for in the next few months. I'm 6 months new to the company, and it's definitely going to be a task unlike any other. They have "parts" of a QMS, due to a recently discontinued goverment program (QSLM) so there are pieces there, but there's alot of work to do to get them where they need to be. My reason for reaching out, is hopefully to gain some resources and knowledge in the area. I'm looking to bring in a consultant to help get the ball rolling, and try to develop a framework and short track. Any advice, books, online reading any of you might find helpful I'd be incredibly thankful for!

Hi brekke777, Welcome to the Cove.

I would suggest ISO 9001:2015 In Plain English by Craig Cochran. I've been doing ISO 9000 series since the mid 1990's and I still found this book useful for my conversion to the 2015 revision.

I would also see what courses your chosen registrar might have available. Most good registrars offer classes on the standards that they register.

Since you are such a small organization it would probably be pretty helpful to work with a good consultant - especially for doing audits as you can't audit yourself... you'll need another resource.

Good Luck and feel free to ask any question at all here.

I'd recommend having a copy of ISO 9000, 9002, and 9004. These would contain definitions of vocabulary in the standard, intent behind the standard requirements, as well as guidelines for the standard itself. All of it helps with getting the "bigger picture" rather than just having a list of requirements.

Welcome!

Did you mean ISO/TS 9002?
