Quality Management System Defined
A Quality Management System (QMS) is a systematic way of monitoring and controlling the essential activities of your business, to continually improve products, process, and personnel.
TIEC provides assistance in the development, implementation and maintenance of Quality Systems in compliance with American Petroleum Institute (API), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) requirements, typically leading to receipt of API Monogram Licenses, ISO Certification and ASME Code Stamps. These services include the development of manuals, procedures, work instructions forms, objectives, and reports; establishing implementation strategies; training of client personnel; and assistance during certification audits.
TIEC will develop a Quality System specifically tailored to your operations. In order to ensure system continuity with minimum disruption to daily business activities, TIEC will include the procedures, methods, and technologies currently in use by your company to the maximum extent possible.
For further information regarding Quality Management Systems please see "Questions & Answers" (FAQ).
