Subject: Re: COMMENT: TL 9000 /../Taormina/Baxter/Lambert

From: "Lambert, Ron"

The key to TL 9000 is metrics. This is what differentiates it from other industry imposed requirements IMHO.

The product metric data is reported to you by your customer (s). Your product life cycle model describes the internal processes you use to correct deficiencies and make improvements.

Those of us in the industry are used to meeting most of the requirements ( 87 adders onto ISO-9001) including metric reporting.

Having a double blind method of reporting metrics from all suppliers within the industry should have a positive impact on motivating quality improvement.

The unknown in this equation in my mind is the involvement of the Registrar.

I remember the beginning of ISO 9001 in the chemical industry and how it took before Registrar's realized how important it was to be a process expert in addition to being a good auditor. The leaning curve will be steep. Again IMHO.
