Volume 5 · Issue 8 · August 2000
Each issue of THE INFORMED OUTLOOK includes 8-12
major articles (30-40 pages) on issues that are timely and
pertinent to management system professionals. We include a
balanced viewpoint with reports from both the editors of THE
OUTLOOK and from contributing experts in their field.
While our focus is primarily on quality management systems
(ISO 9000, QS-9000, TL 9000 and other QMS requirements), we
also regularly report on management systems for environmental
programs (ISO 14000) and on industry-specific requirements.
As an example, the following article was drawn from the August
2000 issue of THE OUTLOOK it explores quality
system registration issues that will affect automotive suppliers
now and in the future. These issues were among the subjects
of a meeting on August 8, 2000, between the DaimlerChrysler/Ford/General
Motors Supplier Quality Requirements Task Force (SQRTF) and
representatives of the Independent Association of Accredited
Registrars (IAAR). Subscribers to THE OUTLOOK benefit
from regular reports of this nature that enable them to remain
current on leading issues in their industry and career fields.
