ISO 9001 certification is a very long process that can take even the most dedicated team years to complete. For smaller companies such a process could be costly, confusing, and arduous. While many resources exist, it takes nearly the same amount of effort to tailor fit the examples as it does to create a whole new set.
The purpose of this senior project is to research examples and help fit them to a small manufacturing company, Sigma 6 Electronics, Inc. An interlinked, or combined, quality manual/procedures were chosen to aid Sigma 6 Electronics through making the documentation clear and perfectly understandable. Through analysis of the data collected from manufacturing, it was determined that there was a large amount of variability in specific non-standard processes. The core of the ISO 9001 certification is the promotion of quality through standard processes and transparency. Through the application of the Quality Manual, Quality Operating Procedures, and Standard Work A3’s, Sigma 6 Electronics should see an increase in quality parts while maintaining a reasonable production level.
