In the area of quality management, it is almost impossible to meet the strict requirements of standards and guidelines regarding the handling of documents without holistic and fully integrated document management software. Apart from guidelines regarding the document creation process, standards and specifications such as ISO 9001, IATF 16949 and ISO 13485 also contain detailed guidelines relating to the maintenance, control, and archiving of documents. Even from a relatively small company size onwards, these requirements quickly exceed the limits of manual document management and, not only due to risk and economic considerations, make the use of sophisticated software solutions virtually unavoidable.

It’s audit-time again and the auditor wants to see just how well the company is in control of its quality management system. Amongst other aspects, the auditor is primarily interested in the company’s processes. Ah yes, there’s that word again – “process”. Regardless of whether ISO 9001, ISO 13485, or IATF 16949 certification, all these standards require that responsibilities and workflows are recorded in writing in shape of expressive process descriptions. How well these process descriptions are thought through and designed can, amongst other aspects, be the factor that decides whether certification is successful or not.
