MSQ is a basic Quality Management System developed by APIMEX and STRATEGA that establishes the minimum international foundations of more complex Quality Management System such as ISO 9001:15 Quality Management System, IATF 16949:16 Automotive Quality Management System, CLAUGTO, etc.
MSQ has eight important requirements:
- Top Management Commitment
- Strategic Planning
- Operative Planning
- Quality Management System and Process Map
- Design and Development
Each of these points has established requirements, “shall”, with the recommend documentation to prove compliance.
A company that doesn’t have a Quality Management System will find MSQ 2.0 an excellent standard to establish strong foundations. A company certified in ISO 9001:15 or IATF 16949:16 will find MSQ 2.0 beneficial in Strategic and Operative Planning, Design and Development, and Lean Projects oriented to slim and to make more efficient each of its processes.
This model is implemented by STRATEGA and evaluated and certified by CIATEC.
