Quality Management Systems

QualityQuality Management Systems (QMS) are implemented in organizations in order to standardize and streamline the repeatability of processes. Organizations who’ve implemented a QMS realize savings in time, errors, and raw materials!

You can implement a QMS that is compliant — either by registering externally to the international standard ISO 9001; or by implementing a system that meets the requirements and self-declaring. Either way, McDonald Consulting Group can help you implement the system that works for you.

Let Us Help You

ISO 9001 Certification Consulting, Training, and Auditing

The McDonald Consulting Group has been guiding companies through the ISO implementation process since 1995.

With a 100% successful implementation rate our record speaks for itself! As members of the United States Technical Advisory Group (US TAG) for ISO 9001, we’re not only aware of the proposed changes, we’re part of the group that decides what changes are adopted. This means that we can provide you with the most up-to-date knowledge of the standard as well as prepare you in advance for changes that are coming…

Our approach is custom tailored to your organization. We work with you to maintain your company culture and style.

There is not a “one size fits all” implementation package from McDonald Consulting Group – every engagement is customized to your needs. Our consultants have broad industry experience, credentials, and certifications, and we pride ourselves in our ability to make your QMS work for you. In fact, we are not limited to ISO 9001:2008, we can help you with any industry specific ISO standard. We’ve done successful implementations in ISO/TS 16949, AS 9100, AS 9120, and TL 9000; and have worked with partners to help our clients upgrade their certifications to ISO 13485 and ISO 17021.

We’re also working on the new ARA 9001 standard (developing the standard and providing implementation assistance).

We are not satisfied until you are, which means we’ll be there to answer your questions every step of the way — before, during, and after your registration.

And, when you are ready to take the next step, McDCG can help you integrate your QMS with an Environmental Management System, Occupational Health and Safety Management System, Lean Six Sigma, Performance Excellence criteria, or add a Corporate Social Responsibility program.

Benefits of QMS

The Value of a Quality Management System

R – Reduce mistakes and oversights made by not having clear processes or procedures
E – Efficiency in operations increases
S – Satisfaction of customers resulting from understanding needs and meeting expectations.
P – Position in market, puts you ahead of the competition. Can open doors to new markets and territories as it is a requirement for many companies to only partner with organizations that are ISO certified.
E – Effective use of resources maximizing productivity while minimizing down time
C – Continual Improvement of your business is driven by the QMS
T – Training new employees and company growth is easier and more effective because of documented work flows.

All of our clients have passed their registration audits on the first try (18 years, over 250 organizations, from small mom-and-pop shops to large multinationals…. we don’t guarantee that you’ll pass, as you have to go through the audit, not us… but our track record speaks for itself!

Industry-Specific Applications

ISO 9001 has many industry-specific applications, including: – AS 9100 (Aerospace) – TL 9000 (Telecom) – ISO/TS 16949 (Automotive – previously QS 9000) – ISO 13485 (Medical Devices)

Industry-specific standards allow additional requirements, customized language, and other modifications to be applied to the standard without changing the requirements of ISO 9001.
