SteelMaiden,i do not think we should listen to the auditor and use their language to drive QS improvement.we need to meet customers' requirement and ISO std.the auditor shall previde us vaule-added audit service.


Okay so I am in the process of writing our manual as we...well...type I guess. And it is much harder then it was 8 years ago when I wrote one for the company I worked for at the time. There are all these new fangled forms and things and COP's and MOP's and...why do I want cops and mops in my manual anyway??? LOL. I do enough mopping at home! Anyway it is really a learning process for me right now.:mg:


What ever happened to the simple Quality Manual that we started out with when ISO9001:2000 first came out? We seem to have complicated things too much.
I have seen a push from our external auditors to add more to the manual then is required by the standard. I think that this is a bad direction to go in.
I am resisting this but it may be a losing battle.
