The framework’s conception was based on the literature review of quality management and the data collected in an action-research study during 2011–2014 in the studied company. The framework contributed to the strategic orientation of the company based on the balanced scorecard (BSC), associating performance indicators to each BSC perspective. After three years of the quality system implementation, leaving some steps to be met, it is observed that the constant monitoring of the quality management system performance allows for quick decision-making, aiming to establish countermeasures to achieve the proposed goals. This study’s results have practical implications in the proposed framework to increase business performance from the quality management system. More cases in others sectors of the economy should be analyzed, and this case should only be considered in one sector.
