8 OTS Quality Management System Tony Woods

9 Approach to Developing the QMS  Unobtrusive & customised for OTS  External accreditation not sought – paperwork  Not a separate system or unit – integrated into all that we do  Essentially a comprehensive summary of how we conduct our business/operations  Based around ISO 9001 & ISO 9004 international quality standards - credibility

10 Status  Reviewed at Workshop & by QRG Nov 2003  Revised QMS published as Quality Handbook March 2004  On OTS website – easy access and version control  Draft QMS Completed Oct 2003

11 Quality Handbook Contents 1.0 Overview of the Quality Management System 2.0 Our Quality Policy 3.0OTS’ Role and Structure 4.0Staff Roles in the QMS 5.0 Internal Planning & Management Processes 6.0Working With Our Clients & Stakeholders* 7.0Introducing or Changing a Service* 8.0Process Improvements – Sharing Best Practice* 9.0Preventing & Correcting Operational Problems*

12 Quality Handbook Contents cont Handling Complaints* 11.0 Keeping Track of Documents 12.0 Guidelines for Developing Policies & Procedures 13.0 Benchmarking & Self-Assessment 14.0 Training & Development 15.0 Managing Risks 16.0 Internal Audits – Checking Our QMS 17.0 Annual Review Appendix 1:Policies, Procedures & Related Documents Library

13 Quality Handbook Contents cont. Policies, Procedures & Related Documents Library –Undergraduate teaching support –Stores –Workshops –Health and Safety –Administration – Staffing –Administration – Budget/Finances –Research Support –Partnership Agreements –Client Interactions

14 Examples of QMS Sections  Section 6 – Working With Our Clients And StakeholdersWorking With Our Clients And Stakeholders  Section 11 – Keeping Track Of DocumentsKeeping Track Of Documents

15 Integrated Nature of QMS Approach to Developing the QMS:  Not a separate system or unit – integrated into all that we do  Essentially a comprehensive summary of how we conduct our business/operations Reflected in:  Section Internal Planning & Management Processes - flowchart

16 Integrated OTS Planning, Management and Quality System Biennial Internal Benchmarking OTS Strategic Outlook Workshop Consolidated Annual Reports on New Services, Process Improvements & Nonconformances Client & Stakeholder Consultation Monthly OTS Managers Meetings OTS Operational Plan Development Griffith University Strategic Initiatives Annual Review of Quality Management System Monthly Campus Manager/Supervisor Meetings Budget Outcome Implementation Plan & Updates 5 Yearly OTS Review and Self- Assessment Ongoing New Service, Process Improvement & Nonconformance Reports OTS Service Provision & Ongoing Client Interaction / Consultation Annual Cycle OTS Staff Forum Quarterly Quality Reference Group Meetings

17 Implementing the QMS Process:  Overview briefings to campus staff meetings  Detailed briefings to managers & supervisors  Forms & procedures introduced at work team level  Quality-related objectives in individual performance objectives Objective :  Unobtrusive/seamless/transparent implementation

18 Some Examples  Exchanging versions of draft electronic documents? –Check the section on Keeping Track of Documents about version numbering.  Developing a new Lab Resource Statement or other procedure? – Check the Policy/Procedures Library before you start. – Read the Section on “Developing New Policies or Procedures” for hints on what to include & how to structure it.

19 Some Examples  Got an idea for improving the way you/we do something? –share it with others, using the Best Practice Feedback form.  Do you support labs? – use the end of semester feedback form with the course convenor or demonstrator.

21 Benchmarking …Implementation and Action Plans Stephen Boyd

22 What are…?  Benchmark Guidelines (Manual)  Indicators of Good Practice  Representative of Technical support activities in Universities  Organisation’s rating against reference criteria

23 Anatomy of a Benchmark  Area and Element  Type (lagging, leading or learning)  Benchmark rationale  Sources of data  Good Practice Statement  Levels

24 The Phases  Phase 1 –Benchmark Implementation  Phase 2 –Results Assessment & Development of Improvement Strategies  Phase 3 – Implementation  Phase 4 – Monitor & Review

25 Benchmark Implementation  Involvement all staff all disciplines concurrent group assessment  Data (lots!) → Meaningful Information PHASE 1

26 Results Assessment & Development of Improvement Strategies  Assessment & Selection Use of both Quantitative (low scores) and Qualitative responses ‘Swamped’ issues  Confirm selection with originators PHASE 2

27 Benchmark Scores Gold Coast Campus

28 Strategies  Benchmark Statement Score (Quant/Qual.)  Objective/Action  Stakeholders  Accountabilities  Resources Required  Constraints  Outcome Measurement  Comments  Review Date

29 Implementation  Comprehensive involvement All staff  Integration into operations Performance Management  Limitations Budget PHASE 3

30 Monitor and Review  Review and modify if necessary  Improvement Strategy Outcomes PHASE 4

33 Process Improvements (Laboratory Inspections for the Gene Technology Regulator – OGTR) Megan McNiven

34 What should the QMS mean to technical staff? Best practice Continuous improvement Monitoring and improving performance Impose minimal additional bureaucracy on staff

35 Context How can I use the QMS to improve the process of laboratory inspections for the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR)?

36 The Quality Handbook Section 6: Working with our clients and stakeholders Section 7: Introducing or changing a service Section 8:Process Improvements Section 11:Keeping Track of Documents

37 Using the principles of the QMSInspection Process Present checklist to laboratory contact via Nominate Inspection time No reply Inspect lab Provide Action Plan to Lab contact Provide Action Plan to Facilities for repairs Phone contact to make reinspection time Reinspect lab Lab inspection may fail Increased chance of Lab passing Provide information to the laboratory contact Keep the lab contact informed Make them feel at ease Offer assistance Request that lab contact fill out checklist Inspector has knowledge of deficiencies and assists where possible Inspector provides assistance where possiblePhone laboratory contact Make an inspection time Request details of progressSome replies

38 Example 2: Action Plan Ineffective Seek feedback Alter format Monitor effectiveness Example 3: Version control

39 Action Plan

40 Conclusion The benefits of using the principles of the QMS Faults in the process have been identified, corrected and monitored Clients are prompted, kept informed and guided through the process The laboratory inspection process is more efficient and less onerous Compliance and satisfaction of clients has is improved
