Management of inconsistencies in the quality management system




quality management system, ISO 9001:2015, standard, claim, complaint, non-conformity.


In the presented work, a systematic analysis of the categories of "complaint", "claim" and "non-compliance" was carried out. The aim of the study is the definitional and categorical clarifi­cation of the specified categories, the determi­nation of existing common attributes and potential opportunities for improving the efficiency of organizations due to the optimization of the relevant systems for managing complaints, claims and non-conformities. To achieve this goal, the main methodological approaches to complaints, claims and non-conformity administration are considered, including Six Sigma (6σ), 8D, FMEA and other methodologies. Based on a thorough analysis of the root causes of the emergence and initial provisions underlying the categories of complaints, claims and non-conformities, as well as their inherent system attributes, proposals were made for considering these categories as components of the integral process of manage­ment of non-conformities/complaints, which will make it possible to optimise the management resource, ensure high quality product characteristics and the overall efficiency of the organisation’s functioning.
