There are several dozen standards of Quality Management Systems (QMS). They create whole families of standards and cover different areas. The family ISO 9000 is one of the most popular and the oldest group. It contains Quality Management Systems with the fundamentals and vocabulary, requirements, and guidelines for the application of ISO 9001:2015, as well as quality management, quality of an organization, and guidance to achieve sustained success.
The second large group is the family ISO 10000 Quality management—customer satisfaction. It contains the guidelines for codes of conduct for organizations, for handling complaints in organizations, for dispute resolution external to organizations, for monitoring and measuring, for quality plans, for quality management in projects, for configuration management, for realizing financial and economic benefits, for competence management and people development, and for the selection of QMS consultants and the use of their services.
The third group with more than forty standards is the family EN 9100 QMS for the aviation, space, and defence organizations.
Other single or twin standards are:
- Petroleum, petrochemical, and natural gas industries: Sector-specific QMS—Requirements for product and service supply organizations.
- Solid recovered fuels: QMS—Particular requirements for their application to the production of solid recovered fuels.
- Transport QMS—Road, rail, and inland navigation transport QMS.
- QMS requirements to supplement EN ISO 9001 for the transport of dangerous goods with regard to safety.
- Medical devices: QMS—Requirements for regulatory purposes.
- Air quality. Certification of automated measuring systems. Initial assessment of the AMS manufacturer's QMS and post certification surveillance for the manufacturing process.
These standards respond to the requirements, needs, and expectations of interested parties/stakeholders in service or production organizations.
This Special Issue on “Quality Management Systems Standards” aims to prove best practice, success magic keys, and unconventional and novel views on the implementation, maintenance, and continuous improvement of QMS according to relevant standards, which are based on PDCA cycle, process approach, risk thinking, and are coordinated with a harmonized or high-level structure. Topics covered in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
- Successful application and use of QMS standards;
- Visualisation of QMS standards;
- Planning, conducting, checking, and acting of QMS;
- Sustainable improvement of QMS;
- Common and specific requirements in QMS standards;
- Development of new approaches to work with QMS;
- Integration models for QMS standards.
