Quality Management Workshop

Quality Management

Using a practical Quality Management System (QMS) in your day-to-day operation can help save you money, and win new business. And if you want to bid on government work, a QMS is usually a requirement.

Also, many potential customers like to know that your company really cares about the quality of your products. A Quality Management System is reassuring to them, and instills confidence in your products.

What is a QMS?

A QMS consists of a series of procedures that you would use in your normal day-to-day operation to help ensure that business is done in a consistent and proper way – and recorded for future reference.

A QMS helps ensure consistent control over the quality of work that you produce. It need not be complicated or expensive to implement.

What you will learn from the workshop

You will be introduced to a practical Quality Management System (based on ISO) that was produced specifically for boatbuilders by the NSBA.

You will learn what needs to be done to implement a Quality Management System in your business.

And most importantly, you’ll learn that you don’t have to jump head first into a full blown QMS, and that you can implement it one step at a time as you and your employees learn how to work with quality management.
