ISO 9001 2015
Back in the days of ISO 9001 2008 I can remember publishing a web-support page on how you could relate the standard to the PDCA cycle...
"...The 9001 2008 structure now also reflects the "Plan, Do Check, Act (PDCA)" cycle, already introduced in the ISO 14001 standard and the OHSAS 18000:1998 specification (also for interest see the health and safety PDCA INDG 275 guide).
The five main sections of the standard are:
•Section four - Quality Management System
•Section five - Management Responsibilities
•Section six - Resource Management
•Section seven - Product Realisation
•Section eight - Measurement analysis and improvement..."
Within 9001 2015 standard the PDCA methodology has been more clearly define as being able to be applied to the processes developed to meet the requirements of clauses 4 to 10.
We know have seven main clauses:
•Section four - Context of the organisation
•Section five - Leadership
•Section six - Planning
•Section seven - Support
•Section Eight - Operation
•Section Nine - Performance evaluation
•Section Ten - Improvement
ISO 9001 2008 used to have eight key principle concepts, namely;
3.Involvement of people
5.System approach to management
6.Factual approach to decision making
8.Mutually beneficial supplier relationships
Guess some of these were a bit long winded...
In 9001 2015 we are down to seven main quality management principles:
3.engagement of people
6.evidence-based decision making
