Audits are an important part of quality and supplier management. They are used to check specifications, internal standards and external processes required during certification processes for some standards such as the IFS or the ISO. They require a lot of time and energy from all parties - before, during and after the audit (more information about the audit process in this blog post). Once the audit is over starts the follow up and the implementation of improvements.
We will discuss in this blog post about the audit follow-up and how to make it efficient to improve your suppliers and your own quality management.
