FACTUAL APPROACH TO DECISION MAKING • There are a clear set of instructions within the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System regarding the process reviews and audits. • These instructions facilitate decision making and information gathering based on factual data collected within the processes. 7. WELL STRUCTURED AND EFFECTIVE DOCUMENTATION • The ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System requires that all processes are documented including any discrepancies, errors and changes. • Staff accountability and consistency throughout production is then therefore ensured.
