Active Standard ASTM F2688 | Developed by Subcommittee: F16.93
Book of Standards Volume: 01.08
Significance and Use
A need exists for a Quality Systems Guide that may be deployed by small to larger manufacturers that give direction on development of process-based systems that drive quality and continuous improvement. This guide does not require third party regulation, thus making it attractive to those manufacturers who are not required to have such certification.
1.1 This guide establishes recommended system-based procedures to assist fastener manufacturers and alteration distributors in the development of process controls which are intended to produce quality products in a cost effective manner. These recommended system-based procedures allow an organization to continually improve operational effectiveness.
