Evaluate the use of quality models and standards and the benefits that use of them may bring to the organisation. It is suggested that your evaluation should compare and contrast at least two quality models and standards but no more than five. The quality models and standards evaluated here do not necessarily need to be in place in the chosen organisation.
2 Evaluate the effectiveness of one method such as CE marking or product certification schemes and the role played by professional bodies (regulators, certification bodies, consultants etc.) in conformity assessment. The conformity assessment method does not need to be in place in the chosen organisation.
3. Analyse the existing management standard functions of the chosen organisation. Discuss what is in place in each of the four functions of: quality assurance, quality management, social responsibility and integrated management functions. This discussion should detail the quality models and standards that are in place, how conformity is assured, the impact of operations on stakeholders and the level of integration of processes to satisfy the expectations of stakeholders.
4. Based on your analysis of what the organisation has in place, draw conclusions about the current level of compliance against quality standards and models.
5. Based on your conclusions, make a recommendation for the introduction of a new management system standard or model into the existing management system together with a time plan for integration.
