Quality Management System Software
Quality Management System QISS (Quality Institute Software Solution) rhymes with KISS for a reason. The software keeps the job of designing, implementing and operating a Management Super Simple. Quality Management System QISS has been written to comply with the requirements of ISO 9001 --- the basic architecture for almost all of formal management systems , like API,AS,TS,OHSAS and others. In other words, QISS will support standards in the Quality Health and Safety & Environment (QHSE) fields.
This fact, and the fact that QISS is a work-flow software, gives you confidence that you will be in compliance, enjoy bottom line benefits, and do it without the drudgery.
QIA provides consulting services to help organizations with design, development, and operation of their management systems. This service can be linked with the services that are described below.
We offer a range of courses that can be taken as a complete program, or as separate courses to suit different needs. Participants, who successfully complete these courses, will be trained sufficiently to implement, operate, and audit a complete ISO 9000, TS 16949, ISO 14000, OHSAS 18000 and other formal management systems.
The courses have been designed by experts who have real life experience with some of the most reputable companies in the world. They have conducted certification audits on Fortune 500 companies, as well as small shops. They have the experience of having been in the trenches as well as in corner offices of industrial and commercial establishments.
An audit is a systematic evaluation of objective data to determine the level of fulfillment of some predetermined criteria. We conduct assessments (audits) of existing quality systems to determine compliance or degree of compliance with the appropriate ISO 9000 based standard. Examples would be ISO 9001, AS 9100, TS 16949, TL 9000, API-Q1, ISO 13485, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, or other standard of the client’s choice. This assessment will be led or performed by fully trained Assessors. We can provide internal audits, supplier audits, and certification audits for appropriate clients.
Our Quality Management software QISS has a dedicated module for auditing where specific data regarding audits performed within or by your company is stored. Audit dates, agendas and schedules are prepared in the module and results are kept in the system for review by management or customers. Dates to remember such as new audit dates, performance or corrective action due dates are available that keep a user up to date and never late with work that is on a schedule or timetable. Employees are automatically notified with tasks and a due date and the company is prompted (by email) if a task or due date is late. This allows the user to always be on top of the performance of a company’s management system.
Technically, Risk is defined as effect of uncertainty on objectives. Risk Management is defined as an organization’s response to a defined risk and management of its consequences. Risk Management can be seen as consisting of the following components:
Risk Assessment: This consists of identifying potential risks, its consequences and a final Risk Priority Number to assess the magnitude of the risk.
Risk Management: This consists of Risk Assessment, Risk Prevention, Contingency planning, and disseminating Lessons Learned.
- Risks with high RPNs need to be addressed.
- Risk Prevention consists of addressing the potential causes, by planning a Preventive Action, which would change some aspects of the current system process(es), thereby reducing the RPN from the unacceptable level to a level that is acceptable, or tolerable.
- The potential causes could be removed, the likelihood reduced.
- A contingency plan should also be done, in case the Preventive Action does not work as planned.
