Manufacturers, specifically small machine shops, find it difficult to compete with the capabilities of large manufacturers. If these small shops are not certified to a recognized standard such as AS9100, sales become even harder.
Small businesses need assistance in understanding and achieving the certifications requirements for a quality management system (QMS), which requires management's commitment and total buy-in for a proper implementation plan that involves the entire staff.
The objective of this project is to develop a quality manual that outlines the total process for the implementation of an AS9100 QMS. The author has researched various guidance documents that provide an understanding of the requirements, ownership, targets, and steps for applying appropriate resources.
A Gap analysis has been completed to determine the status of the QMS and identify what actions should be taken. Documents and processes have been developed with input from the management team, leading to a successful certification process.
