I have a question regarding outsourced processes and their control. Does anyone have input as to how they control these processes? Through incoming inspection activities? Supplier evaluations? Are in-process manufacturing inspection activities adequate to demonstrate that outsourced processes are controlled? We recently (in July,2004) had our audit and this was an area where we were issued a non-conformance. Truthfully, I do not want to implement yet another document in our Quality System docs if it can be addressed within another area... any and ALL suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

Hi tdeardorff, welcome to the cove.

Specifying standards and verification activities like incoming inspection are ways of controlling outsourced process. I don't believe supplier evaluations alone are adequate. You don't have to create new documents, just incorporate the requirements into existing ones like your purchasing and inspection procedures.
