Introduction To QMS

What is QMS? You might have heard of the term – it is linked with the world of business (or to be more exact, with the world of successful businesses). The term basically refers to ‘Quality Management System’, and as you can grasp from the three words, it basically is a system that aims towards the management and enhancement of the quality of a business. To further break it down, what a QMS basically does is to ensure that any business rests upon a set of policies and instructions that allow it to maintain a constant level of quality. For example, a textile factory would incorporate QMS by formulating a set of policies, and a set of detailed manuals for every employee rank, that allow it to produce quality textiles that meet optimal consumer satisfaction.

The term QMS is often interchangeably used with the many international standards such as the quality assurance consultants at Southpac International Group and 9001; however, a distinction should be made between these two. The latter two standards are simply a set of guidelines on how to implement QMS – they are not the system per se. accordingly, a business that has been certified by one of these standards, is basically a company that abides by a quality management system as per the guidelines of one of these standards.At the heart of QMS are basically the following components:

  • A documentation of all inputs-related requirements, which basically refers to manuals, guides, tutorials and other forms of documentation that aim to adequately and precisely describe how employees are to achieve their work contributions.
  • Adequate training and management of employees in order to ensure that they follow up on their required inputs. This includes everything from newbie work camps to the use diploma quality auditing of OHS consultant to estimate the working conditions of employees.
  • A constant documentation of all work processes which aims to provide records and evidence of a continued quality work. The various record-keeping of all departments and secretaries are included here.
  • Regular investigations of the work and quality of work. The annual audits that most companies undertake both internally and externally are included here; they serve as evidence of the company abiding by its stated policies of quality.
  • Continuous attempts at betterment and adaptation, which are based on largely two points: that is, that every work process of a business is never at its ‘perfected’ or ‘ultimate’ form (i.e. it can be further improved upon), and that the company has to constantly change to adapt to the changing society (i.e. accordingly, its input requirements, training regimes and just about every work process can and eventually will be subjected to change).

Things To Do For Her On Valentine’s

Valentine’s is around the corner and you must be in fix, trying to figure out what to give her. The endless number of options may confuse you, especially if you do not know what she likes and what she is expecting from you. So most importantly, you need to pay attention to subtle hints that she gives away on what she wants this valentine’s day. If you haven’t picked up any of those, here are a few options that you could consider. 

  1. A dinner date

No girl would not like a romantic dinner date with her loved one. You could take her out to her favourite restaurant or select someplace new with a romantic setting and ambiance rather than taking her to Mc Donald’s even though it’s her favourite. French or Italian places such as Van Gogh tea are great, with its beautiful paintings, candles, light music and dim lights. Surprise her with a bouquet of flowers and she will surely be over the moon. 

  1. Book a getaway

You both need a break from the tiring lifestyle, so take her away from town during the weekend. Look for valentine’s package deals, not very far from home since you don’t want to spend most of your time on a bus or plane. Plan out the activities you will do on vacation such as sightseeing, hiking or simply spending time together at the hotel spa. It doesn’t matter how fancy the place is. All she expects is to spend quality time with you.

 Scavenger hunt

A scavenger hunt can be very exciting for her. The little surprises on the way will surely bring wide smiles to her face. Pick out a few places that are special for you and hide clues in each place. You could do it small scale by limiting it to the vicinity of your home, or you could plan it to cover the entire town. Hide clues at your favourite café, behind the stroopwafel at Holland painting at the gallery you first met, her favourite clothes store etc. The final clue should lead her to a very special surprise that would leave her speechless. 

  1. Camping in the backyard

Who says you need to go to a forest for camping? You can do it right in your backyard. Surprise her by putting up a tent, a fire along with some marshmallows and even a barbeque station. Arrange for some wine that you could sip on while spending quality time together near the fire. This is one of the most romantic and also less costly ways to celebrate valentine’s day.
