Technical Survey

Prior to the award of the initial purchase order to a Supplier it is customary throughout the industry to conduct a Technical survey.

CAP has developed detailed instructions for its personnel to ensure that surveys are conducted in a planned and structured manner. These include comprehensive checklists for the examination of the Supplier's organisation.

The scope of the survey depends on the requirements of the Client, but could include:

  • Quality system
  • Design & engineering capabilities
  • Production facilities
  • Production capacity
  • Financial background
Unlike for a Supplier Quality System Audit, the Supplier need not neccessarily have a quality system in place in accordance with a recognised standard in order for its quality system to be examined. >>back

Quality System Audit

This is an appraisal activity consisting of a systematic investigation to ascertain the degree of compliance of the Supplier's quality system against the requirements of a standard such as ISO 9000. The Supplier is required to have in place a documented quality system.

A Quality System Audit is generally conducted PRIOR to the award of a purchase order or contract and the purchase order or contract requirements can be used as the basis of evaluation. >>back
