The QMS consists of all of the manuals, policies and procedures required to ensure that regulated processes are carried out in a controlled manner and ensure that the company manufactures high quality, safe and effective products.
The main benefit of designing an effective and comprehensive QMS is that it provides consistency. So that every time a process is completed, it is carried out in the same way and to the same high standards. This will mean that employees can access the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and get detailed instructions on how to carry out each task without any deviation from the expected highest standards of research, investigation, reporting and documentation.
A well designed QMS will also include feedback mechanisms to assure continuous improvement. Where deviations occur CAPAs should be implemented to ensure that the identified root causes of issues encountered are eliminated or mitigated as much as possible. Similarly, effective management review will ensure that the system and processes are regularly reviewed and any identified trends are actioned appropriately.
Improve efficiency, cost and customer satisfaction
Finally, a well-designed quality management system will also complement other business processes and will lead to streamlined and efficient practices. When developing procedures that meet the regulatory and licensing requirements companies often utilise business excellent best practices to drive efficiency, cost improvement and customer satisfaction.
