NAFEMS Quality Assurance Procedures for Engineering Analysis

The objective of this document is to assist suppliers of engineering analysis services to approach quality certification to Quality System BS EN ISO 9001 1 and NAFEMS Quality System Supplement to BS EN ISO 9001 2. The procedures have been reviewed and deemed compliant against the requirements of the above-mentioned controlling standards by an ISO 9001 Lead Assessor. It was intended that the procedures should be as simple as possible, while satisfying the requirements of the controlling standards.

Overview of the procedures

This document is an example of a quality manual comprising a quality system for engineering analysis. The procedures describe the process of engineering analysis in compliance with the requirements of the controlling standards. Rudimentary sample forms upon which quality records can be created are included in Appendix D.

The procedures are arranged in three main sections:

(a) Quality system executive - relating to management of the quality system

(b) Support environment - relating to management of the analysis resources and records

(c) Engineering analysis - relating to management of the analysis process.

Organisations intending to implement this quality system will need carry out some customisation prior to implementation, e.g. quality policy, description of the analysis supplier's organisation, specification of individual responsibility and authority, etc.). An understanding of BS EN ISO 9001 and NAFEMS Quality System Supplement is assumed.
