Industry Challenges and Insights
Within the oil and gas industry, maintaining compliance throughout the value chain is a major issue. Because of this, the emergence of a “closed-loop quality management system” has become a hot topic. Essentially, closed-loop quality management entails integrating quality management system processes and performance data in an effort to improve quality earlier in the value chain.
Companies seek a solution whereby critical processes such as nonconformance reporting and corrective/preventive action are identified and centralized into one quality management system, in addition to other key areas such as document control and training requirements.
QSI has a closed-loop quality management system that homogenizes these critical areas of your management system. This integrated type of quality management has been proven to:
Gain End-to-End Compliance
Effectively Track Quality Metrics
Standardize the Continuous Improvement Process
Foster Commitment to “Quality Culture”
Rid dated, antique methods of data storage
Oil and gas companies can expect to see a quicker return-on-investment when implementing and integrating their critical QMS areas with an effective quality management solution on their path to certification. For companies already certified, our approach then allows for increased product or service quality, which ultimately boosts your company’s customer satisfaction and sales.
