FFD Catering Equipment is a fully ISO 9001 compliant business.
ISO 9001 is one of a family of standards a business can be accredited in, with the full title being “ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems – Requirements”. The standard defines the minimum requirements that a Quality Management System (QMS) must contain.
A Quality Management System is a management framework that comprises of the procedures, policies and other requirements of a business or organisation that ensure customer requirements are met in a consistent fashion that results in good customer satisfaction.
The core of the ISO family of standards is the Plan, Do, Check, Act framework. It is a cycle that can apply to any business procedure or process and can be an invaluable management tool.
- Plan: Establish the objectives and processes necessary to deliver results in accordance with customer requirements and the organisation's policies. This feeds into “Do”:
- Do: Implement the processes. Here we go and do what we planned and record what we did and what happened. These records then feed into “Check”:
- Check: Monitor and measure processes and product against policies, objectives and requirements for the product and report the results. This feeds into the fourth step, “Act”:
- Act: Take actions to continually improve process performance which feeds back into plan. We identify ways we can improve and feed this back into the “Plan” stage of the cycle.
The Plan, Do, Check, Act cycle provides a business or organisation with the framework to provide continual improvement in every aspect of the business. An ISO compliant company continually monitors their procedures through Internal Audits, Management Review meetings and customer feedback to continually improve and ensure they are providing quality of service to customers in a consistent and ever improving fashion.
