  • 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.

  • IATF16949 VE ISO 9001

    1. IATF16949 dokumanlarını biliyorum ancak ISO9001:2015 ten farkını çıkaramadım. ISO 9001 de olmayıp IATF16949 olan neler var nereden ulaşabilirim bu bilgiye.

    2. Ve ISO 9001:2015 de tasarım iatf16949 gibi hariç tutulabiliyor mu acaba şimdiden teşekkürler ?

  • Is IATF accreditation necessary?

    Can you please confirm if the ISO certification would be a sufficient qualification for SME’s to produce 3D parts for automotive OEM’s for the aftermarket supply. In *** (and I’m sure globally also), creating local  jobs through is number one priority. Using new technology such as 3D printing is one area where I see great potential. The plan is to create jobs for SME’s to supply Automotive 1st and 2nd tier OEM partners with car components. In order to supply parts to 1st tier OEMs for example, which accreditations do the SME’s NEED to have in order to meet the stringent automotive quality standards for supply and is this different if we use 3D additive manufacturing to ‘print’ parts?  We are exploring this in depth with 3D supply partners and I need to be clear about the requirements to see if this plan to engage SME’s is feasible or not. Must SME’s have AIFT16949 accreditation or would ISO 9000 be sufficient. What are the approximate costs and timeframe in meeting the minimum requirements.
