Project Management QMS - Manufacturing and Designing of Special Purposed Machines

Dear Elsmar members,

How can QMS be implemented in a project organization (Manufacturing and Designing of Special Purposed Machine). And how can the process be measured. In this organization SPC can not be implemented. Because all of the components are not standart. All of them are special. And one project takes nearly 4-6 months. Therefore, enough data about the processes could not be collected. I am waiting for your comments and support.

Thanks and Regards,

Welcome to the Cove, sailor and congratulations on your first post! :bigwave:

A Quality Management System - although I prefer to use the term Business Management System - can be applied to any company, whether they are in manufacturing or service.

However, there are now many organizations which offer QMS Implementation courses focusing specifically on service companies such as your own. I suggest you determine if any such courses are available in your region.

If not, there are also books available on this topic and you may find them helpful as well! :)

SPC can be applied almost anywhere, my friend, and to any aspect of an organization. You could apply to areas such as:
  • Project cost deviations
  • Project schedule deviations
  • Customer satisfaction
  • Accounting practices
  • Correct paperwork

The possibilities are endless...you need to simply select those processes which are important to your Management System and your company and your stakeholders.

Implement your QMS just like eveyone else does and incorporate configuration management to control your product.

What you do is really no different than anyone else. You find out what the customer requires and you make it happen.

Hello sailor,

Why do you think you need to implement statistical process control (SPC)? There is no requirement in the standard for this.

The standard requires that you measure and monitor your process, and analyze your data - but that is not the same as SPC.

There is more to your business than product. Examples of your other processes might be - your purchasing process, quoting process, shipping process.

Hope this helps a bit.

Re: Project Management

Yes, Sailor, congratulations on your first post!:applause:

Your question is a common one from folks who miss the point that Standards for Quality Management Systems are intended to help organizations avoid reinventing the wheel, but doesn't prevent them from making individual decisions on the size and number of wheels for their organization.

SPC (Statistical Process Control) is a special form of monitoring and analyzing repetitive processes and cannot be used with non-repetitive processes. As some writers have already noted (and some others may elaborate on the theme), there ARE repetitive processes even within orgnizations like yours which "could" be subjected to SPC. The point is the organization makes the decision HOW to analyze its processes and is not forced to use SPC anywhere unless it agrees by contract with a customer. Even then, every contract is open to discussion and negotiation. You need to take the time and effort to explain your point of view to a customer who may be blindly checking off a box on the same form he uses to buy ten million precision shafts when he requests "SPC on the production."

This may be more than you want to know, but I hope this explanation will also serve others who have variations on your question, lured here by the term "SPC."
