Designed and written by professionals with extensive ISO 9000 Certification experience, the techniques and forms in this Manual have been used successfully to achieve certification at over 50 companies. The 90-Day ISO 9000 Manual provides the basic system you need in place to satisfy an ISO 9000 Audit. First, ISO 9000 is explained and the registration process described in detail. Next, you are taken through exactly what you need to do to prepare for an audit. You are given the working instructions and forms you need to meet certification requirements. The forms are unique and have been designed specifically for ISO 9000 standards. Since ISO 9000 is not designed to be a TQM program the authors have also included a special section that provides the information, instructions and forms needed for quality audits such as Q94 or Z1. If you want to take your program further than just ISO 9000 certification, the material is available to you. The 90-Day ISO 9000 Manual includes the latest published draft of Q91 DIS, which is the formal public review copy. Companies that have recently been audited have noticed that certain improvements in documentation have been expected by registrars. These improvements require rewording the old standards. The new standards have been incorporated in this manual and several schemes have been modified. The authors of The 90-Day ISO 9000 Manual have extensive experience working on ISO 9000 standards review, consulting with companies developing programs, registrar experience and international ISO 9000 activities. This manual will reflect a practical approach to registration for the next five years.
ISO 9000 is the abbreviation for the quality standard set by the International Standards Organization (ISO). Many books have been written on the management role in adopting ISO guidelines. This will be the first to focus on those individuals at the heart of industry — the product managers and developers. The emphasis will be on implementing the necessary changes at the product development level in order to comply with ISO standards. The standard is a set of guidelines on quality and customer service (in many way similar to the US 5 Baldridge Criteria.) I is of great importance to US industries because in order for a company to play in the market it will have to follow these important rules that are often neglected.
ISO 9000 has undergone a radical revision, changing the focus from requirements born out of situations that experience had shown led to poor product quality to requirements born out of the need for all organizations to continually achieve their objectives and create satisfied customers. The language has changed from procedure to process and the intent is now more aligned to business needs. The concepts, terminology and techniques that pervade the ISO 9000 family of standards are explained. Learn how to apply such concepts as continual improvements, process management, corrective action and system audit. Understand six-sigma, the process approach and the principles of control and breakthrough. Learn how to manage the business processes, set objectives, identify processes, and write procedures. Discover what the standard means by customer focus, the systems approach, leadership and much more. Packed with information on over 220 terms, this guide: • Provides quick access to the salient concepts that underpin best practise. • Provides ISO definitions and alternative definitions for comparative purposes. • Identifies all the requirements and associated clauses where a particular term is used. • Provides guidance on application and interpretation with hints and tips to aid understanding. • Provides task lists for implementing methods and techniques. A book to pack in the brief case, a portable adviser that is ready to serve up answers when you’re stuck for words, deep in debate, challenged by an auditor or confronted by your boss.
The field of maintenance is hard to approach because the language is strange. This book introduces the fundamentals of maintenance and will allow the outsider to understand the jargon. The book offers a complete survey of the field, a review of maintenance management, a manual for cost reduction, a primer for the stock room, and a training regime for new supervisors, managers and planners.
The packaging of electronic devices and systems represents a significant challenge for product designers and managers. Performance, efficiency, cost considerations, dealing with the newer IC packaging technologies, and EMI/RFI issues all come into play. Thermal considerations at both the device and the systems level are also necessary. The Electronic Packaging Handbook, a new volume in the Electrical Engineering Handbook Series, provides essential factual information on the design, manufacturing, and testing of electronic devices and systems. Co-published with the IEEE, this is an ideal resource for engineers and technicians involved in any aspect of design, production, testing or packaging of electronic products, regardless of whether they are commercial or industrial in nature. Topics addressed include design automation, new IC packaging technologies, materials, testing, and safety. Electronics packaging continues to include expanding and evolving topics and technologies, as the demand for smaller, faster, and lighter products continues without signs of abatement. These demands mean that individuals in each of the specialty areas involved in electronics packaging-such as electronic, mechanical, and thermal designers, and manufacturing and test engineers-are all interdependent on each others knowledge. The Electronic Packaging Handbook elucidates these specialty areas and helps individuals broaden their knowledge base in this ever-growing field.
The ISO 14000 EMS Audit Handbook is an innovative and cost-effective approach for the Environmental Management System (EMS) audit to ISO 14001. The Handbook presents comprehensive strategies for conducting all phases of the EMS audit, including effective assessment processes for determining improved environmental performance, commitment to prevention of pollution, and continuous improvement. The audit concepts, techniques, and methodologies presented meet and exceed the requirements set forth by national and international accreditation bodies for the training and certification of EMS auditors and lead auditors.
Here is a survival strategy for suppliers to the automotive industry. With QS-9000 serving as the new harmonized quality systems requirement of internal and external suppliers for Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, as well as other automobile and truck manufacturers and assemblers, the QS-9000 Handbook is your practical guide for achieving registration. Any company that wishes to achieve registration, must provide evidence of quality production to third-party audits of the registrar. The QS-9000 Handbook will do just that as well as show you how to document your quality systems, train personnel in quality, and improve the effectiveness of any independent quality assurance functions inside your operation.
