A quality management system requires complete documentation and covers the customer’s and organizations’ requirements. It enables an organization to achieve its objectives stated in the policy by ensuring consistent satisfaction to customers and the organization.

A robust management system sets out directions to meet customer expectations, lowers production costs, involves all staff, and increases market share for the organization. Information is required to support the quality management system from the supplier to the customer.
