The Issues with Conducting Internal Audits Yourself 

  •  Aerospace standards have a lot of requirements. These requirements can be confusing and overwhelming. To perform audits the correct way without getting in trouble, you need to fully understand what the Aerospace requirements are asking, which takes months to figure out.
  • ​Internal Auditors need to be formally trained. On average they need about 24 hours of training.  On top of the hours spent in training, they'll need to spend time performing audit activities. That means they need to take away lots of time from their regular responsibilities just to conduct audits. 
  • ​Even with 24 hour training on performing internal audits, the internal team will not become seasoned experts at conducting internal audits. They also won't have an objective way of auditing because they are involved with the processes. That means you won't get the best internal audit results or value added improvements
  • ​The lack of experience can also result in lots of mistakes with your internal audit program. These mistakes will be written up as findings during audits performed by 3rd party certification auditors.  This will take even more of your time to resolve. 

    Benefits of Outsourcing your Internal Audit Process

    •  Our expert auditors who have a strong understanding of all Aerospace Requirements will audit your company and save you the headache of trying to figure out how to audit each requirement. 
    •   Our expert auditors have been formally trained on auditing Aerospace, Company, and Customer Requirements. Over 15 Years of experience working with 3rd party certification auditors gives our expert auditors a sixth sense in helping you prepare for your 3rd party audit. Our Completed Audit Documentation is LOVED by 3rd party auditors. 
    • ​You will not have to worry about preparing for the audit, conducting the audit, creating the audit report, managing the audit schedule, managing the auditees, organizing and taking care of the audit documentation, and looking for effective improvements. Expert auditors will take care of all the above for you. 
    •  Our expert auditors have a strong lean six sigma background, that means they will look for the most efficient and effective improvements your company can make.  Some of our previous clients have each saved more than $2,000 on a single improvement suggestion we made. We usually make at least 4-5 Lean Improvement suggestions while conducting the internal audits. 
      Is Conducting An Internal Audit Yourself Worth The Time Commitment?

      The 3 Internal Audit Phases Broken Down:

      Preparation
      Studying up on Internal Requirements, Aerospace Standard Requirements, and Customer Requirements to create the internal audit program including the schedule, questions checklist, and evidence documents. This process takes 8 hours for expert auditors to complete.
      Conducting The Audit
      Interviewing and Collecting Data on Internal, Aerospace Standard, and Customer Requirements. Reviewing what complies, what does not comply, and what can be improved. Filling out the question checklist with responses to questions and evidence collected. Presenting the right audit information to the team throughout the internal audit process. This process 16 - 24 hours for expert auditors to complete.
      Audit Conclusion
      Reviewing the company processes, the process objectives, the responses received, and the evidence collected to determine if the company is successfully complying with Internal, Aerospace Standard, and Customer Requirements. Creating the Audit report with the summary of notes including findings, observations, and opportunities for Improvement. Creating an additional Action List to address Lean Improvements for massive cost savings that were observed during the internal audit. This process takes 8 hours for expert auditors to complete.

      That is a total of 
      32 - 40 hours.
