Hi, I understand how to audit to the standard, but as I am changing our internal auditing program to the process approach, I am finding difficulty looking at how to use the approach with top management and some support functions. I am finding that with other process style audits, I am drifting back to the clause by clause model of auditing to the standard. My Quality manager wants to be able for my team to do these audits in an our or so. We are auditing individual processes at our manufacturing site, like the raw material ordering process, maintenance calibration, processing units, etc. (for example).
Am on the right thought path with "the process style" of auditing?
Also, is there some reference of what clauses are most useful to audit against for different types of processes? Say for instance, a maintenance support process vs. a material receiving or shipping process?
