A well-developed quality management system can benefit organizations in many ways. The most significant benefit is the assurance of compliant products and strengthening of competitive position. Use of systematic quality management means that organizations have to determine customer needs and also review how far they are fulfilled in accordance with legal and other requirements. Customer satisfaction is as good as guaranteed as a result.
In addition, systematic performance and process descriptions within the framework of quality management mean reliable product quality – not least because processes are better controlled, and managers can make well-founded decisions thanks to the greater transparency offered by the system. Above all, constant change is one of the most important factors in today’s world, and systematic quality management means that organizations can react better to complex demands and changes in the market. In this context, the system protects against risks and makes it easier to learn from mistakes instead of repeating them, and also to recognise opportunities. Efficiency over the long term with lower overall costs is sure to result.
