Very exciting to go to #thequalityshow today in Rosemont,IL.
Our team attended a lecture about the newest revision of ISO 9001:2015. Matt Ames did a wonderful job presenting the largest changes to the standard.
Below I have highlighted a few of the items discussed:
- There is a 3 years transitions timeline form ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015 standards.

APQP stands for advanced product quality planning, a term that was originated by the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG).
