Abstract

Often, audits are scheduled on a quarterly or yearly basis because that’s how they’ve always been conducted, or because the audit must take place to comply with a standard. The author proposes a better way to plan audits: through data- mode decisions. This mathematical approach helps measure the likelihood of breakdowns and problems so an organization can be more proactive than reactive in maintaining processes and systems, and minimizing quality risk.
