One of the most common industry standards
for a quality system is ISO-9001. According to the ISO 2009 survey, through the end of December 2009, at least 1,064,785 ISO-9001 (2000 and 2008) certificates had been issued in 178 countries and economies, making it the predominant standard for defining quality systems in the world.
ISO standards do not define the integrator’s quality system; they provide a guideline for the quality process. The main elements of an ISO standard quality system are:
- Quality Management System
- Management Responsibility
- Resource Management
- Product Realization
- Measurement, Analysis, and Improvement
