To nominate a plant, please complete the form below and submit it by December 15, 2012
“Quality” plants deserve special recognition. That’s why Quality Magazine is presenting its 2013 Quality Plant of the Year Award.
The award is open to manufacturing plants in the United States. The plant must be involved in making and measuring, testing or inspecting discrete parts. We’re looking for plants that have applied world-class quality technology, equipment, services and techniques that result in reducing scrap, rework, warranty or manufacturing costs, improve productivity or cycle time, increase capacity or improve adherence to quality standards.
The Quality Plant of the Year award recognizes both a small plant of 250 or fewer employees and a large plant of more than 250 employees for its outstanding achievements in quality. Anyone can nominate a plant—employees, suppliers and casual observers are welcome to make submissions.
Deadline for nomination forms is December 15, 2012. All nomination forms MUST include a list of equipment, and brand, used in the manufacturing facility. Nominations without this list will be disqualified. The Quality Plant of the Year will be profiled in the March 2013 issue of Quality. The winning plants must be available for interviews and photographs in November/ December 2012.
The purpose of this field guide is to assist organizations, step by step, in implementing a quality management system (QMS) in conformance with ISO 9001:2008, whether from scratch or by transitioning from ISO 9001:2000. It examines each sub-clause of Sections 4–8 of ISO 9001:2008, which contain the requirements, and gives a list of the documentation/documents required, internal audit questions, a summary of management’s responsibilities, and a flowchart of the steps that need to be undertaken to satisfy the requirements.
