Examples of such processes include:-

* Order Processing
* Production Planning
* Measurement of product/ service/ process compliant with specified requirements including statistical techniques such as Statistical Process Control and Measurement Systems Analysis
* Calibration
* Internal Audit
* Corrective Action
* Preventive Action
* Identification, labelling and control of non conforming product to preclude its inadvertent use, delivery or processing.
* Purchasing and related processes such as supplier selection and monitoring

ISO9001 requires that the performance of these processes be measured, analysed and continually improved, and the results of this form an input into the management review process.
