Quality reviews

As manufacturing or distribution processes change, a periodic review must be carried out to ensure that the quality procedures are still relevant and applicable in the light of the changed conditions. Statutory standards may also have been updated and these reviews check that the latest versions have been incorporated.

As part of the reviewing process, existing, proposed or new suppliers and contractors have to confirm their compliance with quality assurance procedures. Figure 17.3 shows the type of letter which should be sent periodically to all vendors.

All the above procedures are sometimes described as the 'tools' of quality management to which can be added the following techniques:

• Failure mode analysis (Cause and effect analysis)

• Pareto analysis
