Should we even have Quality Manuals?
Some maintain the QM is redundant and really just a audit finding bait, when the Level II don't match perfectly the Level I. And they maintain the QM is really the procedures and that the QM is not needed. What do you think? Why have a QM at all? Does anyone besides you and the auditor ever read it?

Is Your QMS a Reporting Function or an Operating System?
Does you company live and breath the ISO/AS as a way of doing business or is it merely a reporting tool for keeping track of stuff the auditors want to see?

Should auditors act as consultants?
Little is more annoying then getting handed a finding and the auditor won't give you a clue how to fix it. Should the auditor be able to discuss possible ways of compliance? Heck, we are paying them good money!
