Monitoring and measurement
The ISO Navigator™ database hyperlinks the ISO 9000:2005 principles and the ISO 9001:2008 requirements; and explains them in plain English with practical guidance.
This guidance has been superseded by ISO 9001:2015 Clause 9.1.1 General. If you want to see a comparison matrix that correlates the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 to the revised requirements of ISO 9001:2015, please click here to begin comparing.
Our range of ISO 9001:2015 quality manuals and integrated manual templates cover the requirements of ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018, and offer an easy way to implement and document your organization's quality management system or integrated management system.
ISO 9001:2008: Monitoring and measurement of processes 8.2.3 (superseded)
Applicable processes need to be identified in the quality manual, along with a description of the interaction between those processes. The applicable processes might include those relating to four general categories:
- Management processes
- Customer processes
- Support processes
- Assessment processes
The organization should identify monitoring, and, where appropriate, measurement methods to evaluate process performance. The organization should incorporate these measurements into processes and use the measurements in process management. Measurements of process performance should cover the needs and expectations of interested parties in a balanced manner. Examples might include:
- Process capability
- Reaction time
- Cycle time or throughput
- Measurable aspects of dependability
- The effectiveness and efficiency of the organization’s people
- Waste reduction
- Cost allocation and reduction
The intent of this sub-clause is to monitor/measure processes with the QEH&S objectives. Monitor and measure QMS processes to ensure they are able to demonstrate:
- The process’s ability to provide a conforming output
- That a suitable response is imposed to correct non-conforming results
