Can we answer to 4.1.2.4 Ų Organisational Interfaces saying that we have a Quality Committee, which is responsible for co-ordination of all quality aspects, and this Committee meet almost every 2 weeks to maintain the System, and we have a APQP procedure, or we have to make a scheme like:

LOGISTICS <------------------------ QUALITY
<=_ _=>
=> <=
MANAGEMENT
_=> =>_
<= =>
ENGENEERING <-------------------- PRODUCTION

--> ...4.1.2.4 - Organizational Interfaces
-->
--> The supplier shall have systems in place to ensure management of
--> appropriate activities during concept development through production
--> (refer to Advanced Product Quality Planning and Control Plan
--> reference manual). The supplier shall use a multi-disciplinary
--> approach for decision making and have the ability to communicate
--> necessary information and data in the customer-prescribed format.
-->
--> NOTE: Typical functions to be included are: --
--> Engineering/Technical -- Manufacturing/Production -- Industrial
--> Engineering -- Purchasing/Materials Management --
--> Quality/Reliability -- Cost Estimating -- Product Service --
--> Management Information Systems/Data Processing -- Packaging
--> Engineering -- Tooling Engineering/Maintenance -- Marketing and
--> Sales -- Subcontractors, as necessary...

That could be an element of your overall system. Other elements include design review meetings and the like where 'multi-disciplinary'teams meet to plan, evaluate,make decisions, etc. Organizational interfaces are also often defined by the organizational chart and within procedures.

We use diferent internal multidisciplinary team to development products or activities, like you we have a committe, which is responsible for co-ordination of all quality aspects (politics, objetives etc) and other organitional estructure to complite other funtions, the most important thing is the relation between all activities into the quality system.

I think the purpose of 4.1.2.4 is to assure that all activities that "must be" involved in all steps of quality planning for a product or service, will really be working as a team to plan, design, produce,check and deliver something that will make "happy" a customer.The quality comitee is a good alternative if they really represent all the departments involved in a process. A Quality Comitee that meets every week or month just to drink cofee(I hope is not your case) and fill minutes with waste conclusions is a shame.Lets remember that Quality Assurance is no longer the name of a Deparment, but a living verb to practice for all the people needed to make quality, no matter to which Department represent.

I hope this will be helpfull for you Naty
