Genre: Fiction

By the close of 1882 in the American West, the line between heroes and villains is narrow. Total chaos is staved off only by the few who take the law at its word and risk their lives to uphold it. But in the West, the rules aren't always played according to Hoyle. US Marshals Eli Flynn and William Henry Washington — longtime friends and colleagues — are escorting two prisoners to New Orleans for trial when they discover there's more than outlawry to the infamous shootist Dusty Rose and the enigmatic man known as Cage. As the two prisoners form an unlikely partnership, the marshals can't help but look closer at their own. When forces beyond the marshals' control converge on the paddle wheeler they've hired to take them downriver, they must choose between two dangers: playing by the rules at any cost, or trusting the very men they are meant to bring to justice. HR This is a revised and edited second edition, with minor new additions, originally published elsewhere.

QMS Conversion

Author: David Hoyle
Publisher: Butterworth-Heinemann
ISBN: 0750675985
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Business & Economics

QMS Conversion: A Process Approach assists organizations in converting their existing quality management systems of documentation into systems of managed processes that deliver business benefits. The 2000 version of ISO 9000 requires a different approach to be taken towards the achievement of quality, an approach that delivers customer satisfaction not simply compliance with documented procedures. By using a process approach to the development of a management system, the significant time and expense invested should be utilized in a way that will help an organization achieve real business benefits through the application of ISO 9000: 2000. The real value of the process approach is its focus on results thereby eliminating activities and procedures that do not add value in the organization's quest to satisfy its customers and other interested parties. Written in a straightforward, non-technical manner, the approach is easily understood and followed by managers or engineers at any level. It allows readers to focus on results rather than functions, activities, procedures or standards. Applying this methodology to the management of quality will give you a distinctive competitive edge over the companies that end the certification process once the requirements have been met. With this book, the reader will be able to: Recognize the difference between conformance to standard and system performance Distinguish between procedures and processes and understand what makes the two fundamentally different from one another Understand the large gap that exists between a procedural approach and a process approach Comprehend the importance and power of the eight quality management principles Understand the steps to be taken to convert element-based systems to process-based systems and identify the factors that affect success in the conversion process Construct a model of the business that identifies the key processes and their interfaces Establish performance indicators and measurements for each process and produce process flow charts that link together to form a coherent system description Understand the steps to take to construct a system that fulfills the design criteria Determine whether the conversion has been successful and identify where further improvement is required Each chapter is structured with a set of learning outcomes that can be accomplished by covering its contents. The chapters follow the sequence of the conversion process and each addresses the change in direction brought about by the ISO 9000: 2000 family of standards. Achieve real business benefits with ISO 9000:2000 Focus on results Provides process modeling and analysis techniques
