Concept of Integrated Management Systems

Industrial competition has become fierce due to the industrial revolution. One of the perspectives to maintain sustainability is to merge the management system to become more extensible, constructive, and contentious in the industry. Integrated Management Systems (IMS) is the integration of QMS (Quality Management System), EMS (Environment Management System), OH&S (Occupational Health and Safety), ISMS (Information Security Management System), Social Responsibility, and other regulations, standards, and requirements into a single management system.

An IMS includes integrated processes, integrated risk, and integrated audits. IMS fosters the approach that an organization should establish one integrated system that is best for the business and not separate processes, or documentation, to satisfy each management standard. IMS contains company-wide processes that conform to various management system standards like AS9100, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001 to support business goals.

Advantages of Integrated Management Systems

Lately, there has been a proliferation of management system standards and requirements in the global market. These management system standards are either customer or industry assigned. The increasing number of these standards costs money to implement and even more money to maintain individually. Integration and standardization reduce uncertainty and repetition in the workplace. The approximate cost is 50% less to establish and maintain an integrated system. Besides that, the registration cost goes down by as much as 33%.

An integrated management system enhances the Business Focus of the organization as it helps centralize the organization’s activity, improving and reinforcing connections between quality, employee health, and safety. IMS can make the procedures more analytical by merging the standard systems and distributed processes. Less friction between Individual Management Systems and more constructive resource management is possible. It also reduces replication and bureaucracy, which emerge due to work organizing and control.
