WRWP, LLC (Western Reserve Wire Products) has been designing, building and distributing wire harnesses since 1987. Through the years they have evaluated and implemented more efficient means of production with state of the art equipment and manufacturing plants in China to reduce time and costs for their customers, while maintaining a high standard of quality.
The engineers at WRWP often work with their customers’ engineers in the design phase of new products to produce the best possible fit and function for the wire harness that will be needed, thus reducing unnecessary changes down the road. And with that approach, in 2015 WRWP searched for a consulting firm that was the best fit and function to review their quality management system and develop a customized implementation plan to achieve ISO 9001:2008. They selected simpleQuE, and with consulting and training support, achieved their certification.
Due to that success, when it was time to transition to ISO 9001:2015, they again turned to the experts at simpleQuE who utilized a Fast Track approach and developed an action plan while utilizing a detailed gap checklist to identify where WRWP was already compliant and where gaps existed. Over the next several months with the guidance of simpleQuE consultants, their quality team worked hard to close the gaps while maintaining their quality system and improving internal processes. That preparation resulted in zero findings and certification to the new standard by Smithers Quality Assessments. Congratulations to the team at WRWP!
SimpleQuE was one of the first consulting companies in the world to become ISO 9001:2015 certified. The transition is simple when utilizing our expert consultants or gap checklist to guide you through the process.

ISO 9001:2015 and/or ISO 14001:2015 Condensed Management System Manual Template – A condensed quality/environmental manual to support the 2015 changes
This manual can serve as an ISO 9001, ISO 14001 or integrated management system manual for multiple standards. It supports the requirements in ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 even though a management system manual is no longer required. There are still items that are required to be documented that are logical to maintain in a central management system manual. This format of approximately 5 pages has been used successfully for over 10 years for AS9100, ISO/IATF16949 and ISO 9001 clients without any findings. This is a proven condensed template that has been audited to the existing standards by more than 16 certification bodies without any findings over the last 10 years.
