1. With just inquiry/Sample order (before products approval) how can we conduct Process audits /product audits /Internal audits?
All internal audits, according to IATF standard 7.2.3; should be done by competent auditors. The automotive process approach is essential in system audits. You may need to take internal auditor training for this. Production audits should be made for each shift and for each production process. In addition, it is necessary to be competent in the process of FMEA and control plan. You may need training in this. Product audits can be performed by employees who understand the technical drawing of the product and use measuring instruments.
2. How can we monitor KPI?
KPIs ''key process indicators'' on a monthly or quarterly basis, on a process basis; can be followed with excel tables.
3. How can we conduct MRM?
Every subject mentioned in IATF standard 9.3.2 and 18.104.22.168 should be reviewed with senior management and the team at least once a year. These meeting notes can be documented with either word or PowerPoint. It would be better if the decisions are documented with who, when, what to do, and the result format.
