QS 9000: One New Breath to the Brazilian Industry
The brazilian industries are seeking a quality improvement by the reaching of the required level of certification of their systems by the ISO 9000 standards.
The majority of them do not even obtain the ISO 9000 certificate and the great north american automotives launched QS-9000, creating various obstacles.
This article discusses the origin of QS-9000 and the positive/ negative points that will fall upon the automotives and brazilian autoparts.
Here are cited the elements and the steps required to the certification, the care to be taken in the certification, the time limit to aquisition and the tendencies in the field of quality.
