Auditing is a fundamental management tool whose primary purpose is the verify that systems and processes are in compliance with organizational rules. A process audit insures the company's practices, methods, procedures, and requirements are being met. A system audit insures that a company's standards, regulations, policies, and procedural manual descriptive requirements are being adhered to. This newly revised and expanded third edition of The ASQ Auditing Handbook provides comprehensive coverage of the audit function and is specifically designed to provide practical guidance for both system and process auditors including attention to the factors of quality, environmental, safety, and health issues. Enhanced with example forms, an example guide for when technical specialists are needed on the audit team, and a great deal more, The ASQ Auditing Handbook is a core addition to professional, corporate, and academic reference collections.
