Keywords:Quality Management System
Management systems for regulatory compliance and quality programs are examined in this paper from the standpoint of their potential integration and in terms of the concept of a process. The paper identifies five common drags on management system optimization and outlines a scoring system that organizations may use to evaluate their management systems for potential adoption of an integrated process-based program.
