Benefits of Remaining Current With Your ISO Standard for Small Manufacturers

There are many reasons it is beneficial to keep ISO standard up-to-date, including:

It allows the business to continue to grow and move forward while keeping a competitive advantage over those manufacturing companies that choose to not remain current or implement an ISO standard. 

An ISO update will improve alignment between management systems and the strategic direction of the organization. A solid alignment with management systems and the strategic direction of the organization needs to be an integral part of a business’ processes.

It stresses the important of Risk Based Thinking, which is a systematic approach to considering risk, rather than treating “prevention” as a separate component of a quality management system. Risk Based Thinking allows for opportunities to differentiate between the various processes based on their level of importance and impact on delivering conforming products/services. This allows the focus to be on key priorities.

Updating ISO broadens the concept of customers to include end-users, consumers, regulatory bodies, and others, allowing the definition and expectations of interested parties to be addressed.

It lessens the requirements for documentation, enabling organizations to decide on what matters most to its operation to manage and control it in an era where automation and smart systems play an increasing role in management.
