Quality Systems - Model for Quality Assurance in Design, Development, Production, Installation, and Servicing;
|Publication Date:||1 January 1994|
This American National Standard specifies quality-system requirements for use where a supplier's capability to design and supply conforming product needs to be demonstrated.
The requirements specified are aimed primarily at achieving customer satisfaction by preventing nonconformity at all stages from design through to servicing.
This American National Standard is applicable in situations when
a) design is required and the product requirements are stated principally in performance terms, or they need to be established, and
b) confidence in product conformance can be attained by adequate demonstration of a supplier's capabilities in design, development, production, installation, and servicing.
