QP Consultants has assisted many small, medium and large organisations over more than 20 years to implement effective management systems. In most cases, this includes preparation to attain and maintain certification to the following International Standards:
ISO / TS 16949, includes customer-specifics
Our practical and technical experience in the application of the "process approach" as promoted by these standards, results in a practical, client-focussed, user-friendly, integrated system, with the primary focus on "best-practice", effectiveness and lean principles, rather than the primary focus being on the standards themselves ("de-mystifying ISO").
PROCESS MAPPING / SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT & MAINTENANCE
Facilitate mapping / flow charting the core, management and supporting processes with the process owners and their teams.
Provide guidance and training where such processes do not comply with the requirements of the applicable standard(s).
Developing and / or upgrading "work instructions" for specific tasks, maximising the use of visual aids (e.g. photographs) to effectively explain the methods, standards etc.
Practically facilitate risk analyses for a wide range of industries, products and processes, including Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA).
