The international community agrees that ISO Quality Management standards are best-practice for organisations seeking government contracts, regulatory approvals or product certifications. Compliance with specialised engineering standards may also be necessary for your product to achieve certification.
Nova can provide system structure and Standards guidance, and perform preparatory audits to ensure your organisation’s, or your product's, timely certification to your own internal or external standards. Possessing a wealth of experience, Nova is familiar with a broad range of Industry and Defence best practice including:
- ISO 9001, Quality Management Systems,
- ISO 13485, Quality Management Systems for Medical Devices
- ISO 31000, Risk Management
- ANSI/EIA-632, Processes for Engineering a System
- MIL-STD-499, Engineering Management
Done properly, Nova believes that a Quality Management System can also become a powerful Business Management System that can improve the operation of the whole organisation. We offer support to expand the scope of your Quality Management System to encompass business processes that may not necessarily fall within the scope of the ISO standards. Nova practically demonstrated its competence in this field when it recently conducted an audit for ElectraNet. Using ANSI/EIA-632 as a reference document, Nova tailored the standard to meet the customer’s requirements, and then provided an audit based assessment aimed at combining and collating existing engineering procedures within the company. Offering more than a simple ‘find’ the problem associated with a traditional audit, Nova can provide a ‘find, fix and follow-up’ service to ensure the problems are identified, eliminated, and do not return.
