New and revised standards are increasing the demands placed on management systems. The aim of this paper is to investigate how the effort required to create and maintain management systems can be minimized. A concept is presented, which also considers the integration of different management systems. First the existing management systems are evaluated. Then the requirements from practice are determined. These are examined and evaluated. Based on both results it is determined which requirements an integrated management system must fulfil. On this basis, a practical concept of an integrated management system is developed. As well optimal interfaces are considered. This concept is transferred into a web-based application. In order to ensure an optimal implementation and expandability, the structure is realized modularly.
The aim of this work is to develop possibilities of an effective audit procedure shall be worked out. Audits are systematic, independent and documented processes for obtaining evidence. This ensures conformity with the requirements. In order to achieve certification according to standards, an external system audit must be carried out by an accredited company. These are very time-consuming and costly because the auditor has to be on site. A concept of how the audit can be carried out without an on-site appointment is developed and evaluated. The possibilities of current technologies - such as VR - are also considered and integrated into the concept. Due to the high-level structure this can be carried out on an integrated audit which combines different management systems.
