ISO/QS 9000 Registration is quickly becoming the ticket for admission in the domestic and global marketplace. Many customers already require ISO compliance, and if they don't now, they probably will soon.

While implementation of an ISO/QS 9000 based system will be beneficial in the long run, the up front costs can be overly burdensome, especially for small businesses. Costs in the $100K- $150K range are not unusual.

Because of this, MTTC has developed a consortium concept, IsoEasy, which is designed specifically to make ISO 9000 registration achievable and affordable for small businesses. By forming and working together with a group of companies, the MTTC is able to offer a comprehensive training and implementation package at a fraction of what each company would pay individually.

The program consists of a series of Quality System development workshops, training sessions, and on-site consulting, resulting in the development and implementation of an ISO/QS compliant Quality System. The program has been carefully developed to ensure a timely, methodical, affordable, and highly successful approach to the development and implementation of a World Class Quality Management System. Each participating company will receive:

The heart of the program is the intensive, interactive four-day workshop in which four of your key people will develop and document your company's quality management system in a draft Quality Manual. They will also identify and begin development of the second tier implementing instructions. In addition, two people from each company are trained as internal auditors, which will help expedite the implementation process, minimizing external audit costs.

Additional services are available outside the scheduled program, including on-going Quality System management, surveillance auditing, and personalized implementation programs. For more information: Call Bob Chilton, (502) 367-2186.
