Development of a Quality Management System (QMS) Certifiable to ISO 9001:2015 Standard for the Department of Energy (DOE) As of June 25, 2018
Lead: Policy Formulation and Research Division - Energy Policy and Planning Bureau
June 19-21, 2018 / Technical Guidance on Enhancement of Operational Controls
The workshop aims to enable the officials and staff of DOE to:
Develop and review the existing controls and documentation of the Agency’s operational processes;
Ensure alignment of the Agency’s operational and support processes in conformance with the requirements of the ISO 9001:2015 QMS standard.
The expected outputs are:
Quality Control Plan; and

Quality Management System / ISO are not just about documentation. The Operational Control that was explained in this process is the heart of the Quality Management System and the auditable part as explained by the DAP speaker. Eighty percent (80%) of the output in this Quality Plan will be audited.
Discussed the Process Approach. This was lifted in the ISO 9001:2015 Standard. The SIPOC Model – the basis of control. SIPOC is a checkpoint to monitor and measure / control of performance
Sources – Applicable to all processes like manufacturing and that of DOE. Example of this is the supplier of supplies / equipment.
Input – Matter, energy and information like materials and resources requirements
Processes - These are the activities, the starting and endpoint, where the possible controls and check points are monitor and performance are measured.
Output - Matter, energy and information like product and service decisions.
Customer - Receiver of output and other interested parties.
The results of this process can be checked through Quality Assurance (QA). This is the program for systematic monitoring and evaluation of all the planned activities implemented within the quality system providing confidence that a product or service will fulfill requirements for quality.
Methodologies for quality assurance were also discussed.
Input Process through:
Documents review / inspections; among others
Output Process through:
Contents Counter checking;
Obtain Customer Acceptance and Feedback ( though not necessarily to be included in the documentation but part of the auditable part in the QMS)
Process Control was discussed.
3Ms, P & E:
Material – protect material in process;
Method – standardized and written procedures as necessary;
Machine – appropriate equipment and utilities
People – provide qualified and trained personnel
Environment – Conducive physical and social environment.After the QMS, need to have a review / some improvement like working space.
The Model for Control was explained:
SIPOC - Source, Input, Process, Output & Customer ETX – Entry requirements, Task Control requirements & Exit Control requirements R – Risks
Workshop per unit on the Quality Control Plan using / combining all the tools.
Review of Lectures on the Technical Guidance on Enhancement of Operational Controls (this is in consideration for the other core members have not attended the first day of program. Note: was confused with the adjustment of date of schedule)
Continuation of Group workshop / activities on Quality Plan
