ISO 9001:2015 - Context of the Organization (4.0)
ISO 9001:2015 no longer requires a quality manual, but the standard does not say you can no longer have one.
Consider documenting your context (ISO 9001:2015, Section 4.0) and using this information as a replacement for the "old" manual. Include as follows:
4.1 - Context of the organization
4.2 - Interested parties
4.3 - Scope of the Quality Management System
4.4 - QMS and it's processes.
From our experience with this standard (and we've had a lot), this method works very well. All of the information you need will be in one central location, and can be readily accessed when needed. As an "added bonus", you still have a quality manual if requested by a customer.
