1. Initial Gap Analysis & Operational Research Study
The Initial Gap Analysis Study is for clients who want a stand-alone or integrated management system and want to understand where they stand versus the conformity management system standard (baseline); what they need to do to achieve management system certification to this standard or standards; what is the project plan, time and costs involved in achieving the management system certification. For the client who wants a performance based management system, an operational research study, which is a more in-depth gap analysis would be required.
