Quality objectives or KPI in QMS Manual?

Hi. Just wanna know if the declared procedures in our QMS Manual should always have a Quality Objectives? Or is it just okay to have a KPI for whole department? Thanks a lot.

Answer:

The QMS Manual should have quality objectives established at the beginning as it much easier to track the effectiveness than KPI for a single department and it also provides a broader goal that the company is working toward for its Quality Management System. The objectives can be specified within or out of the Manual as ISO 13485 does not specify where the objectives need to be documented.
