Key Elements


As part of your MS documentation, ConformanceWare® includes area specific workbooks geared to save time and reduce paperwork. Each workbook compiles data into one place for instant retrieval, which eliminates the need for using multiple forms.


In key areas of the management system, each workbook serves as a one stop document spreadsheet that holds specific and necessary information required for certification. This enables the system to run more efficiently and gives the CB auditor the means to easily find and verify the information they’re looking for.


AQP Workbook - The AQP is a processing planning management workbook. It is set up to ask all the questions required for process planning as required by the ISO 9001 standard. Questions are simply checked off as Yes, No or Not Applicable. The workbook also includes an Actions sheet to record any tasks and/or issues that need to be addressed and assigns responsibility and dates associated to the task or issue.


AIRA Workbook - The AIRA workbook addresses the processing aspects and the impacts of those aspects by assigning a risk score to quality and legal areas to obtain an overall risk score. The workbook also includes a Control (Quality) Plan sheet. For each aspect listed in the QMS-AIRA, the Control (Quality) Plan addresses all the requirements necessary to perform the aspect and reactions to any Quality issues that may arise. Finally, all associated legal requirements are listed in the Legal Requirements sheet of the workbook.
