Benefits of ISO 9001

Changes in your business' operations will always create some additional load on your business, however the results of implementing a Quality Management System (QMS) are well worth the effort as you move forward.

Blueprints are one of the many things that are being made obsolete by technology and electronic files. Implementing a QMS (like ISO 9000) is a similar situation - a little work up front, but after a short time the benefits of iso in your organization will be clearly seen.

ISO 9000 ROI: What can you expect?

When ISO 9001 is implemented in an organization:

  • Well defined and documented procedures improve the consistency of output
  • Quality is constantly measured
  • Procedures ensure corrective action is taken whenever defects occur
  • Defect rates decrease
  • Defects are caught earlier and are corrected at a lower cost
  • Defining procedures identifies current practices that are obsolete or inefficient
  • Documented procedures are easier for new employees to follow
  • Organizations retain or increase market share, increasing sales or revenues

Top reasons given for registration:

  • Internal operational efficiency
  • Lower production costs because of fewer nonconforming products, less rework, lowered rejection rates, streamlined processes and fewer mistakes.
  • Access to new markets
  • Some markets require ISO 9001 Registration, some markets favor companies with ISO 9000 Registration
  • Customer request
  • Many organizations are asked by a customer to obtain registration as a requirement to continue or to start doing business with them.

Despite your certification, if you don't follow the Eight Quality Management Principles (QMP's) your organization will not realize the benefits:

  1. Management must be committed to quality with the same rigor as other corporate objectives. QMP 2
  2. Your entire organization must be engaged as they would for safey or other goals. QMP 3
  3. Execution comes from everyone, not just the Quality Department. QMP 1, QMP 5
  4. Management must take ownership and cannot outsource this to a third party - they will now know the organization as well as your own team. QMP 4, QMP 3
  5. You must audit and take corrective/preventive action for real improvement. QMP 6, QMP 7
