TL 9000 is the certification standard for the telecommunications industry and was developed in 1998 by the QuEST Forum. It has undergone several major changes, all with the intent of becoming a single set of worldwide telecom quality management system requirements built on existing industry standards and practices. It consists of two parts, one of which defines quality management system requirements for the design, development, production, delivery, installation, and maintenance of telecom products and services. The other part of the standard provides a measurement system that allows companies to track performance and improve results.
Some benefits of TL 9000 certification:
• Assuring consistent quality across all products & services
• Improving supplier relationships
• Facilitating analysis against industry benchmarks
• Providing a basis to make fully informed decisions
• Reducing the cost of both supplier and customer audits
• Reducing the cost of product life-cycle management,
supplier management expenses, and general operations
• Providing a consistent set of quality expectations to drive
efficiency and performance across the telecom supply chain
The TL 9000 quality management system provides a systematic and repeatable framework for consistently producing top quality products and services customized to the global communications industry.
