"Preventive Actions" in "manufacturing industry" are easily undestood and can be defined on the basis of mean failure rates etc.

ISO 9001 is applicable to service industry. Can someone suggest gudelines fro developing preventive action for service industry such as "training", "project development and consulting", "software development" etc.

-> "Preventive Actions" in "manufacturing industry" are
-> easily undestood and can be defined on the basis of mean
-> failure rates etc.

This is not particularly true. Prevenive actions must address more than just manufacturing systems. Mean failure rates are only one measure of many.

Let me think. I did a service industry a few months ago. They included an employee award for 'best idea of the year' and some stuff like that. Mainly, however, they used management review and departmental meetings to track quality (and other) related data. From the data they 'predicted' possible trouble areas. The procedure is in my Implementation Guide package in the Flow_Charts.ppt file. It;'s the last slide - slide 44 (thought I am making some changes so the slide number may change).

-> "training", "project development and consulting

These are also preventive.
