The ISO 9001 standard embodies what is internationally considered to be good business practices. ISO 9001 outlines what is necessary to have an effective Quality Management System (QMS), while continually improving all processes throughout your organization.
ISO 9001 has released a new revision called ISO 9001:2015. This revision will affect all organizations currently in the pursuit of or utilizing an ISO 9001 certification. At Pro-Ex Solutions we pride ourselves in our vast experience with ISO. Our consultants are lead auditors to the 9001:1994, 9001:2000, 9001:2008 and 9001:2015 standards and have experience designing entire Quality Management Systems for all types of organizations. We were the first to design and implement a Quality Management System, to certification, of an Electrical Service & Integration company. We also pioneered the way for the first mobile Ice and Water service provider to be ISO 9001 certified. Our experience extends to all facets of manufacturing, machine shops, fabrication shops, all service industries, and even virtual companies.
Six Sigma centers on the principle of reducing any and all variability within a process. A Six Sigma company utilizes projects in order to optimize efficiency and quality with measurable and sustainable goals. Six Sigma approaches organizational change from the employee level, utilizing the analytical measurement and study of processes and inputs, or “voices,” sequentially to find the most appropriate solutions to the organization’s problems. The Six Sigma solutions motivate all staff towards the pursuit of positive change through continual improvement, and may be applied to any process, including but not limited to: manufacturing, healthcare, banking, IT, and all service industries. Six Sigma will improve your organization through the elimination of wasteful processes, advancing quality through removing variability, and increasing morale and productivity among employees.
The Lean approach focuses on one major goal: to eliminate waste. A Lean organization follows the most proven and logical processes, in order to increase efficiency and productivity while simultaneously decreasing disruption and waste. One of the main principles of Lean links all processes throughout the supply chain to produce exactly what is needed, only when it is needed. This overarching principle applies from raw material to a finished product or service, enabling any organization in any sector to identify and therefore eliminate waste. Lean produces optimal efficiency with superb quality.
