PostSubject: Assessment to ISO 9001   Wed Jul 08, 2009 12:06 am

Once all the requirements of ISO 9001 have been met, it is time for an external audit. This should be carried out by a third party, accredited certification body. In the UK, the body should be accredited by UKAS (look for the ‘crown and tick’ logo). The chosen certification body will review the quality manuals and procedures. This process involves looking at the company’s evaluation of quality and ascertains if targets set for the management programme are measurable and achievable. This is followed at a later date by a full on-site audit to ensure that working practices observe the procedures and stated objectives and that appropriate records are kept.

After a successful audit, a certificate of registration to ISO 9001 will be issued. There will then be surveillance visits (usually once or twice a year) to ensure that the system continues to work. This is covered in more detail in ISOQAR’s ‘Audit Procedure’ information sheet.

ISO 9000 Series and Six Sigma

ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 9000 series standards were first published in 1987, revised in 1994, and re-revised in 2000 by the ISO. The 2000 revision, denoted by ISO 9000:2000, has attracted broad expectations in industry.

As of the year 2001, more than 300,000 organizations world-wide have been certified to the ISO 9000 series standards. It embodies a consistent pair of standards, ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 9004:2000, both of which have been significantly updated and modernized. The ISO 9001:2000 standard specifies requirements for a quality management system for which third-party certification is possible, whereas ISO 9004:2000 provides guide- lines for a comprehensive quality management system and performance improvement through Self-Assessment.

The origin and historical development of ISO 9000 and Six Sigma are very different. The genesis of ISO 9000 can be traced back to the standards that the British aviation industry and the U.S. Air Force developed in the 1920s to reduce the need for inspection by approving the conformance of suppliers’ product quality. These standards developed into requirements for suppliers’ quality assurance systems in a number of western countries in the 1970s. In 1987 they were amalgamated into the ISO 9000 series standards.

Independent of ISO 9000, the same year also saw the launch of Six Sigma at Motorola and the launch of Self-Assessment by means of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in USA. Both Six Sigma and Self-Assessment can be traced back to Walter A. Shewhart and his work on variation and continuous improvement in the 1920s. It was Japanese industry that pioneered a broad application of these ideas from the 1950s through to the 1970s. When variation and continuous improvement caught the attention of some of the American business leaders in the late 1980s, it took the form of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, on a national level, and of Six Sigma at Motorola.

Some people are wondering if the ISO 9000:2000 series standards make Six Sigma superfluous. They typically refer to clause 8 of ISO 9001: “Measurement, analysis, improvement.”

It requires that companies install procedures in operations for the measurement of processes and data analysis using statistical techniques with the demonstration of continuous improvement . They also partly refer to the ISO 9004:2000 standards that embody guidelines and criteria for Self-Assessment similar to the national quality awards.

The author firmly believes that Six Sigma is needed regardless of whether a company is compliant with the ISO 9000 series. The two initiatives are not mutually exclusive and the objectives in applying them are different. A Six Sigma program is applied in organizations based on its top-line and bottom-line rationales. The primary objective for applying the ISO 9000 series standards is to demonstrate the company’s capability to consistently provide conforming products and/or services. Therefore, the ISO 9000 series standard falls well short of making Six Sigma superfluous.

The ISO 9000 series standards have from their early days been regarded and practiced by industry as a minimum set of requirements for doing business. The new ISO 9000:2000 stan

dards do not represent a significant change to this perspective. Six Sigma on the other hand, aims at world-class performance, based on a pragmatic framework for continuous improvement.

The author believes that Six Sigma is superior in such important areas as rate of improvement, bottom-line and top-line results, customer satisfaction, and top-level management commitment. However, considering the stronghold of ISO 9000 in industry, Six Sigma and ISO 9000 are likely to be applied by the same organization, but for very different purposes.ISO 9001
