The Quality Manager should complete the Manufacturing Quality Audit Checklist Template to assure a systematic examination of the department or area. The Quality Manager will inform the area manager at the start of the audit and will review any observations made. The Quality Manager will review the data gathered and verify important details. A written report will be issued to the President and the department manager within five (5) days of completion of the audit.
The Quality Manager will maintain a master log of audits listing deficiencies, individual with assigned responsibilities, target correction date, and mandatory completion date. If conditions dictate, administrative action may be taken as directed by the company President. The audit master log file should include a copy of documentation of the most recent audits, including MFG110-1 QUALITY ASSURANCE AUDIT CHECKLIST, with a minimum of one (1) audit per department and a listing of projected audits and tentative dates (month and year).
