A Quality Management System (QMS) could be defined as the set of ordered and coordinated activities that allow to offer quality products or services for customer satisfaction; that is, they are components susceptible to planning, control and continuous improvement, so that they meet the requirements and exceed customer expectations.

In general terms, the construction of a QMS is based on five basic elements:

  1. Organizational Structure
  2. Planning (Strategy)
  3. Resources
  4. Processes
  5. Procedures 

    WHAT IS A QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IMPLEMENTED FOR?

Having a good implemented QMS assures you some advantages such as:

  • Guarantee of the good functioning of the company, therefore, the fulfillment of the organization's objectives. For this, it is necessary that the objectives related to the quality of the system are in accordance with the general objectives of the business; otherwise, the quality objectives will be fulfilled but will not contribute to the fulfillment of the goals and objectives.
  • It facilitates the management of the development of activities based on the quality principle. A QMS allows a comprehensive analysis of performance and the detection of opportunities for improvement, which, if successfully resolved, will be significantly reflected in the company's performance indicators.
  • Improvement in the organization of the required processes, as well as the synergy between the members of the organization.
