APPLY SIMPLICITY SCIENCE
Here are a few of the rules of simplicity science that can be applied to Quality
Know the scope of your business and do not apply requirements that do not affect the quality of your
product, service or customer satisfaction. Only apply requirements or portions thereof that add value to your business.
Avoid unnecessary paperwork. Do not make records
for the sake of having a record. If the record has no value, modify or eliminate it.
Never have a system that requires you to “Get
Ready” for an audit. A well designed quality system is integrated into your business because you are doing things
you want to do not have to do.
Never have a system that is so complex that you have to hire someone
to maintain it. If you need to do this, it is probably because your system includes too much busywork and not enough
value added content.

DID IT GET SO COMPLICATED?
Our research shows that 75% of the ISO 9001 quality systems in manufacturing companies are
wasting the company’s money because they are over complicated. Some of the causes are:
Lack of understanding of the requirements. Few realize the exceptions that
can be taken because the requirement does not fit your business. The Del Straight Company can help you to understand
what needs to be done and what can be eliminated.
Over Paid Consultants.
Some make systems complicated to justify their inflated fees or hourly rates. The Del Straight Company quotes all work
up front and offers it at a price that is often less than you could do it yourself.
The system we design will pass an evaluation by any agency or customer
evaluating your compliance with the standard. NO OTHER QMS CONSULTING FIRM CAN MAKE THIS
