If you need to (i) understand the requirements of any QMS (Quality Management System) standard, and (ii) conduct internal audits and/or supplier audits – then this is the course for you! After completing this 2-day practical course & workshop participants will have the knowledge and skills to plan, undertake and report on internal and supplier audits using the ‘process approach’ against any audit criteria (i.e. management system standards, customer requirements, etc.). The aim is to evaluate overall system effectiveness –planned activities and planned results.
This unique course is applicable for Aerospace, Defence, Automotive and Rail quality management system standards
ISO 9001:2015 is used as the ‘base standard’ to which additional requirements may be added – e.g. the AS9100:2016 series of standards, AQAP 2110:2016 series, AQAP-2310:2017, IATF 16949:2016, IRIS and/or customer-specific requirements (e.g. SABRe Edition 3) – you choose the audit criteria! Participants obtain an understanding of the requirements by mapping them to an organization’s processes and activities, and then devising audit questions to evaluate the extent of conformity.
Particular attention is given to creating these 'evaluation questions' in situations where the auditee organization may not have documented procedures, or the auditor doesn't have the time to read their procedures!. In addition, participants will learn how to assess the ‘active’ management of customer satisfaction, QMS and suppliers performance and process-level effectiveness – and how to audit the organization's Leadership!
This practical course contains many Team Exercises and Individual role-play scenarios that are structured to follow the key steps in preparing for, undertaking, reporting on and closing-off process-based conformity, compliance and performance audits. This is how participants gain an in-depth understanding of requirements – its learn-by-doing or accelerated learning.
