  • IATF 16949 People engagement

    I am QMS Engineer for tier 1 automotive. How do I get the team (Top Management) engaged. GM supports me but has no time for anything regarding systems. I audit, I execute and escalate. Then nothing from Management or I get "Why is this happening". You have to drive the system. Maybe I am missing an execution strategy. So I never finish anything because another fire is ready to put out.

  • Process turtle for Customer Specific Requirements

    Hi-quick question.  Is it ok to have a process turtle for Customer Specific Requirements?

  • SPC for big subgroups

    Hello. I have been working with SPC Xbar-R charts, for measurements samples sizes from 1 to 7 .

    Now I have a situation that I am not sure how to handle: In a new process we got, there is a measurement machine that performs thickness measurements from one sample and the result we got (from 30K-10K measurements) are Average, Max, Min.

    I was asked to use SPC to keep track of the process performance using this three data. I am a little bit confused since the sample from I got the three statistics (Avg, max and Min) is really big so I cannot apply the typical SPC ideas.

    First, I tried to use this three data for a Xbar-R chart, but it is clearly wrong since the sample I am using (3 data) comes from a bigger sample (10K-30K). I was thinking to use Xbar-S chart, but I am afraid it will be the same problem.

    Thank you very much in advance.

  • Timeline for processes audit

    Can you please verify: do we audit all processes 1 time for every 3 years (=3 times in a 3-year cycle) or is it only 1 time in 3 years?

    It states that we have to audit all processes over a 3 year cycle/audit program/period.

    Do we audit all process each year during the 3 years, which would equal 3 audits per process or,

    Do we audit 1 time during the 3 year period so each process is audited 1 time in 3 years?
    I am trying to get clarification on the requirement.

    I believe, and in my past experiences, I have audited all processes each year in a 3 year cycle, so each process is audited 3 times in the 3 year cycle.

    (in other words each process-full QMS processes must be audited every year)

    The question has arrised at my new place of employment, but the standard is not clear.
