1 – Analyze the system risk unmaintained
The first error is found when we forget process . Risk analysis system is not maintained, instead of analyzing the risks of uncontrolled operational processes.
We could make an example of a metallurgical company that analyzes the main risk, not have backups of customer records, or providers which are supplied, they are not tested.
Not meet legal requirements, or the standard ISO 9001 2015 , there are risks be analyzed. Should analyze the risks of the activity of the company.
For example, in a transport company, by studying key processes should identify and eliminate risks suchas unintended use a trailer to transport chemical waste food.
2 – No risk analysis of operational processes subcontracted
Usual outsourcing services , but that may not involve a disregard by the company that subcontracts.
If a company outsources a key to its business process , you can not leave the responsibility solely in another company. It must ensure that these processes lead activity that contract are sufficient for the quality criteria which they seek.
3 – Only address the risks perceived by staff instead of using an appropriate methodology
Many companies only put the critical eye of risks in the problems that are able to perceive the staff themselves, who often are identified by a brainstorming. This activity can identify some shortcomings, but will not get a complete analysis.
The full risk detection method involves an analysis of each of the activities you can develop the company. Only then, we will ensure that all activities in which we are involved remain studied and we will ensure that any activities related to the company may involve a risk to anyone.
For example, a janitor in a hospital carrying a newborn and documentation; first delivery documentation in an office to save a trip parking the baby carriage in the hallway (with the risk of someone stealing the baby!). For risk assessment, the methodology must take into account the severity of the consequence of failure, the probability that it materializes the ruling and the effectiveness of the mechanism, if any, to detect the fault and stop its consequence.
4 – Do not act adequately against the risk identified through preventive action
They should look good preventive systems that manage to reduce subsequent quality controls and to save on cost control. So we get that there are no failures. Prevention means less costs of «non-quality» which will result in lower production costs .
A company that is able to reduce production costs, immediately get a competitive edge against the competition . But to have this advantage, not enough to identify the risk, but prevent it and correctly implement the measures.
5 – Do not set the appropriate quality plan given the level of risk
If we receive material and at this stage we have no quality control, the risk that these materials are defective and subsequently used in the production of our product is low, the company will have previously asked the supplier of these materials include a Quality analysis.
However if you are not sure that the provider made and verified this process, the risk will increase. Therefore, our quality plan must include this verification.
