Okay, I've received great advice. Unfortunately I have to move forward ever so slowly. Hoping to have a QMS in place by July 2006 for certification January 2007. Met with Gap analyst team chosen for me by top management. We are meeting again in morning to go over a few more items. We all completed on line training on ISO but this is still all new to us. We are beginning gap analyst with Sales tomorrow. Invited top management (3 in this class) to pop in to our meeting this morning. VP of operations only one to come, stayed entire meeting and gave input. Great help. Any wisdom before we begin!!! Will let you know outcome!::thanx:

Barbara,

Welcome to the cove!!!

One of the first steps in your Quality Management System (QMS) transition or implementation project is to compare your current QMS to the requirements of the ISO 9000:2000 standard.

I can offer some "Lessons learned" form my compaines gap analysis:

i.) Try to follow the schedule that you have prepared. Go into each area of the facility to evaluate the current quality system.

ii.) Focus on what is in place, and what is not in place. Remind auditors that you are not focusing on compliance or non compliance to the current system, but on the design of the current system, and how it matches the ISO 9001:2000 requirements.

iii.) Take notes on what is in place, and what will need to be developed and changed. Take complete notes, reference documents and objective evidence.

I would also suggest looking at this thread as well.
