A Quality Management System directs a company so that it can optimize its performance through analysis and improvement.
NASA, the military and nuclear industries in the 1960s developed processes and quality control documentation systems in order to standardize. They were interested in making sure that their own organizations had control of continuous improvement and could be evaluated by an outsider using a standard format.
The original versions of Quality Management System (QMS) Standards (eventually merged to ISO 9001) were designed to contract manufacturers to produce better products, consistently and were focused on Producing, Checking and Control.
An increased focus on QMS has promoted a general perception that quality is about procedures and documentation. The emergence of tools like 6 Sigma and Lean are interesting developments in the application of quality principles in business. A QMS is fundamental to any activity and having a clear understanding of the five aspects, measuring performance and taking action to improve is essential to an organizations survival and growth.
