Looking for guidance on what IATF actually expects for versioning control on software programming. We have software for machine control where we input particular parameters and tolerances that control what the machine does to make a particular product. We save that under a product part number so that it can be reloaded next time we need to run that part number. If we change the parameters that we input to have the machine make this part number (let's say we change the pack pressure parameter) do we actually have to save the prior program, since it will no longer be needed? Thank you,

Product safety training

Internal auditor competence
How can one verify competency of internal auditors? I am a quality manager who has conducted audits for 28 years. What training do I need to take to be competent in auditing my company to IATF 16949 or conducting 2nd party audits? Do I have to take lead auditor class? I signed up for internal auditing class to IATF but do not know if that will be good enough to be considered competent. I am not confident in the IATF standard requirements.

Quality Manual in IATF 16949
My question is, Do I need to add to my Quality manual the Context of the Organization clause in order to conform with the New IATF standard?? I'm a little confused about this. Because the IATF 16949 is based off the ISO 9001:2015 standard and with the New ISO standard you're not required to have a Quality Manual, but with the IATF 16949 standard you do!!! Please help me!!!! Thank you
The transition and defining the scope
We are the ISO/TS certified remote location 5 production sites. We have added one more design center in another location. We decided to go with a single certification (combined for both locations) for ISO 9001 and IATF 16949.
Product Safety-Related Product
I would like to know regarding Clause 220.127.116.11. Is this about managing all the necessary so the product will not cause any harm to the user or is it about managing the safety features of the product itself
Question about 18.104.22.168
My company is starting up the work to be certified with IATF 16949 and I have some questions about point b) in this paragraph.
First-off/last-off part validation. How long is it necessary to store the parts. Is it enough to store the first part of the batch and save it to the completion of the production order and then comparing the parts?
Do you also have to store the last part and compare it to the first part in the next production batch?
Or is it other requirements to storing the parts, in example a certain amount off time? Reason for this question is that we run about 50 different batches each week, and storing the parts over time would take up quite some storage.
Thanks for any replies
