Monitoring quality throughout the entire supply chain.induces a clear always current and auditable communication on quality and security standards. The only way to achieve this is maintaining steering an authorised and controlled documentation as most of the standards require in the first place. Furthermore, the organisation has the obligation to inform the staff and keep an audit trail of these notifications. A pre-requisite is a digital signing and authentication procedure that works internally and externally for those decades of the product life cycle or is updated vitally to overcome new arising threats in the field of information technology. Internal and external standards, instructions and regulations must be adapted to every employee’s context, workplace and environment without spamming them. The flood of information can only be managed efficiently, if the system can support a controlled and individual communication stream to each person involved in quality and security relevant areas. To make the quality management system work, a couple of principles must be repected:
Relations like conflicts, redundancies or synergies can arise from external regulation, technical restrictions and customer specifications. The internal documentation must therefore analyse, harmonise and resolve these interdependencies.
The capacity limits of the organisation as a whole and of each individual must not be exceeded,
All changes must be processed within the given capacity and time limits.
Develop the appropriate approach to efficiently communicate regulatory requirements of your market and business environment among your organisation.
