High Quality in Canada
The more complex the organization – the more interdependencies between the various links – the smaller number of independent chains it’s composed of.
E.M. Goldratt and J. Cox in The Goal, 3rd Edition (2004)
The Quality System is the totality of all of the integrated purposes and functions needed to build and maintain a facility to the expectations outlined in published cGMP / GMP standards. With senior management’s commitment and the acquisition of necessary resources, the Quality System will be argyle and capable of responding to manufacturing issues as well as to the rigors associated with sourcing qualifying raw materials. In turn, the Quality System houses and supports corporate policies, procedures, and processes – all with an aim to aid in preventing product defects. By fostering a culture of quality, senior management and staff will periodically complete performance assessments to determine what areas within the Quality Systems will benefit from further improvements or expansions.
