Continual improvement programs

I need a better understanding of this clause requirements. We currently have a documented procedure that defines our CI program which focuses only on employee ideas that may lead to "Just Do It' or "Kaizen events.

Answer:

CI program you have established can fulfill the first part of 10.3.1 clause because of performance indicators and their effectiveness, as Kaizen events and Just Do It initiatives, are typical Lean methods that lead to the increase of process effectiveness.

Also, consider Improvements in the manufacturing process to reduce process variation. This can be achieved by using Six Sigma as methodology as it is the methodology used for reducing variation in the process.

This clause additionally refers to risk analysis (such as FMEA) so please consider article: “What is FMEA and How to apply it in IATF 16949” https://advisera.com/16949academy/blog/2017/09/06/what-is-fmea-and-how-to-apply-it-in-iatf-16949/
