Organizations that have implemented effective ISO 9000 Quality Management Systems
(QMS), or in today's language, an ISO 9001:2000 QMS, have experienced numerous
benefits. While some folks will say that an ISO QMS brings unnecessary bureaucracy to
an organization; those who have implemented effective systems for their business will
instead talk about the benefits. We are firm believers that a QMS (or EMS, or RCMS)
should be based on YOUR needs and should benefit YOUR business as opposed to
implementing a system "to meet the standard." Some of the benefits include:

 Overall Benefits of an ISO Quality Management System (QMS)

   6.   Should yield $$$

   2.   Help you identify improvement opportunities
   3.   Insure management involvement at all levels
   4.   Aid in identifying priorities and quality objectives

   5.   Provides a framework for "comfort"
   6.   Only QMS that has proven itself in $$$$

 Your QMS Should:

   1.   Not be cumbersome to live with or bureaucratic
   2.   Yield measurable results
   3.   Be built on your culture and operations
   4.   Improve customer satisfaction
   5.   Reduce scrap and waste
   6.   Improve quality
   7.   Yields $$$$

Reducing headaches is a significant part of an effective QMS. Your QMS should help
reduce headaches related to internal problems as well as customer complaints and issues.
It should also address the inputs to your business and reduce headaches related to
suppliers and purchased goods or services. If your QMS does not reduce "headaches"
then it is not as effective as it can be and you need to be working on the system!
