4aBetterBusiness, Inc. - Tools and Solutions to Help Your Business Run Better

Achieve Value-Added Certification
as a By-Product of Improved Performance and Increased Profits

Single System to Meet Multiple Standards:
ISO 9001, IATF 16949, AS 9100, Nadcap, API Q1, API Q2, ISO/TS 29001, IEC-Ex, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18000, ISO 50001

4aBetterBusiness has, for more than 20 years, developed visual, process-based systems that develop immediate, enthusiastic employee buy-in to change, cut core costs, improve productivity, support growth, and achieve certifications as a by-product of the improved performance of the business.

4aBetterBusiness visual systems, developed working side-by-side with management and employees, have for 20 years incorporated process-based thinking and action, consideration of risk, knowledge management, employee engagement, configuration management and other elements only recently incorporated in ISO 9001:2015 and related standards (e.g., IATF 16949, AS9100D, ISO 14000, others).

By mid-September, 2018, all certifications to the earlier versions of these standards (based on ISO 9001:2008) will expire. Companies that want to maintain certification must transition to the newest version of these standards by September 14, 2018.

Text-Based Systems

Many companies have cumbersome, text-based systems in place. The graphic below shows the general transition process to update a system but retain the existing text-based approach.
    This looks complicated, because it is!
    • Works backwards from sections of the standard; compliance driven, adds bureaucracy and cost
    • Inhibits innovation, no support for new technology
    • ISO 9001:2015 and related standards have entirely new structure. Non-value-added documentation update takes management and employee time away from running your business.
    • Gap analysis approach provides list of work for you to do, does not accomplish required changes.
    • Need for certification to multiple standards adds significant complexity
