New to Quality? Let ASQ's Quality Resources help. Our topic for this week is Auditing.
WHAT IS AUDITING?Auditing is defined as the on-site verification activity, such as inspection or examination, of a process or quality system, to ensure compliance to requirements. An audit can apply to an entire organization or might be specific to a function, process, or production step. Some audits have special administrative purposes, such as auditing documents, risk, or performance, or following up on completed corrective actions.
