A complete Design and Development Plan & Checklist, meeting all the requirements of
ISO 9001 8.3 D&D of products and services
ISO 9001 8.3.2 D&D planning
ISO 9001 8.3.3 D&D inputs
ISO 9001 8.3.4 D&D controls
ISO 9001 8.3.5 D&D outputs
Research and development projects are very difficult to manage, since the defining feature of research is that the researchers do not know in advance exactly how to accomplish the desired result. As a result, “higher R&D spending does not guarantee the products meets internal and external requirements. This is why tight Quality Control is required. Quality Control and the creative nature required for design and development don’t always go hand in hand, but when executed properly, this quickly becomes a nonissue. The design team, management team, and operations team should be able to easily work with one another to achieve a common goal. A key part of the process is exactly what ISO 9001 8.3 states. Flexible planning, defining requirements up front, determining required inputs and expected outputs, and finally verifying and validating the project.
Design and Development “R&D” is hard enough as it is. Our goal is to save you time and energy. What better way than to track and monitor all D&D requirements, including the Verification and Validation on a single form. Be it self audits, customer audits, or registration audits, a simple easy to use clean form makes the process so much simpler. Your future self making design changes will appreciate the details documented here.
We hope you enjoy. Should you have a specific need not met otherwise, contact us at info@TexasQualityAssurance.com.
