ISO Internal Audit – A Plain English Guide: A Step-by-Step Handbook for Internal Auditors in Small Businesses (ISO Pocket Book Series)

Let’s be realistic – it is human to make mistakes, so it’s impossible to have a system with no errors; it is, however, possible to have a system that improves itself and learns from its mistakes. Internal audits are a crucial part of such a system. In this book, Dejan Kosutic, an author, and experienced ISO consultant is giving away his practical know-how on ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 27001, ISO 22301, ISO 20000, ISO 22000, OHSAS 18001, ISO 13485, AS9100 and IATF 16949 internal audits.This book is written primarily for beginners in internal auditing and for people with moderate knowledge about internal audits. On the other hand, if you do have experience with internal audits, but you feel that you still have gaps in your knowledge, you’ll also find this book helpful. So, no matter if you are new or experienced in the field, this book gives you everything you will ever need to learn and more about internal audits.Inside you will find not just basic information about the internal audit and ISO 19011 but also information on how to create the internal audit checklist, how to write the internal audit report, what are the best technics for finding evidence during the audit, how to perform interviewing during the audit and much more.Kosutic uses real-life examples and plain English in order to explain everything that is necessary to completely understand how to perform an internal audit for all ISO management standards.

Statistical Method from the Viewpoint of Quality Control (Dover Books on Mathematics)

The application of statistical methods in mass production make possible the most efficient use of raw materials and manufacturing processes, economical production, and the highest standards of quality for manufactured goods. In this classic volume, based on a series of ground-breaking lectures given to the Graduate School of the Department of Agriculture in 1938, Dr. Shewhart illuminated the fundamental principles and techniques basic to the efficient use of statistical method in attaining statistical control, establishing tolerance limits, presenting data, and specifying accuracy and precision.In the first chapter, devoted to statistical control, the author broadly defines the three steps in quality control: specification, production, and inspection; then outlines the historical background of quality control. This is followed by a rigorous discussion of the physical and mathematical states of statistical control, statistical control as an operation, the significance of statistical control and the future of statistics in mass production.Chapter II offers a thought-provoking treatment of the problem of establishing limits of variability, including the meaning of tolerance limits, establishing tolerance limits in the simplest cases and in practical cases, and standard methods of measuring. Chapter III explores the presentation of measurements of physical properties and constants. Among the topics considered are measurements presented as original data, characteristics of original data, summarizing original data (both by symmetric functions and by Tchebycheff's theorem), measurement presented as meaningful predictions, and measurement presented as knowledge.Finally, Dr. Shewhart deals with the problem of specifying accuracy and precision — the meaning of accuracy and precision, operational meaning, verifiable procedures, minimum quantity of evidence needed for forming a judgment and more.Now available for the first time in this inexpensive paperbound format, this highly respected study will be welcomed by mathematics students, engineers, researchers in industry and agriculture — anyone in need of a lucid, well-written explanation of how to regulate variable and maintain control over statistics in order to achieve quality control over manufactured products, crops, and data.

These include such activities as providing clear decisions and directions, constantsupervision by experienced individuals, immediate review ofcompleted activities for accuracy and completeness, and documenting decisions, assumptions, and recommendations. Quality controlprocedures should ensure that the work is done correctly the firsttime. Essentially, QC is what the project manager does to confirmthat a QA activities are effective and provide feedback upon which further development of the QA activities can be made
