Audit rating System

Audit rating System

The audit rating system is designed to bring consistency to the evaluation of audit results across the business units. The operation of a rating system is as follows:

1. Each discrepancy will be classified as either major or minor. Major:- A deviation from a specification or from procedural requirements, which may cause major product malfunction or yield loss at higher level assembly, for example, components not meeting test criteria. 

Minor:- A deviation that could create some unwanted variability in the product or process or which presents a slight risk, for example, an unqualified operator working on a product or documents that have not been updated

2. All audit discrepancies will be scored in the following manner: 

Major: 04 Point

Minor: 01 Point  

Recurrence of major deviation: 8 Point

Recurrence of minor deviation (form last audit): 2 Points. Consecutive 3 items recurrence of minor deviation becomes major: 4 Point.

3. The overall audit rating is obtained by adding the points for observed discrepancies, divided by the total number of audits, and subtracting from 100.

            Rating = 100 - Total point ∕ Total number of audits

4. All major discrepancies require immediate corrective action with a written response.

5. Overall audit ratings are established for percentage(%) Range: 95 to 100% Excellent. 90 to 95% Satisfactory. Below 90% unsatisfactory, requiring immediate attention and corrective action response.
