The AIAG Guideline suggests that LPAs may be used to meet the IATF 16949 requirement for 'process audits'. Actually, 'IATF' requires each manufacturing process to be audited to determine its effectiveness, which isn't necessarily the same thing as an LPA, whose main purpose is to see if the instructions and other controls are being used.

Layered Process Audits (LPAs) are a quality technique that focuses on observing and validating how products are made, rather than inspecting finished products.
