"Satisfying Automotive Customer with specific Quality Management System"
A NEW EVOLUTION FIRST DEVELOPED IN 1999, ISO/TS 16949 HAS BECOME ONE OF THE MOST WIDELY USED INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS IN THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY TODAY. IN 2016, THE INDUSTRY IS SET TO EVOLVE WITH THE PUBLICATION OF A NEW GLOBAL INDUSTRY STANDARD BY THE INTERNATIONAL AUTOMOTIVE TASK FORCE (IATF).
ISO/TS 16949 was first developed by the IATF in conjunction with ISO’s technical committee for quality management, ISO/TC 176. As a result, ISO/TS 16949 integrated with ISO 9001 by including specific requirements from the automotive sector. In October 2016, the IATF will publish a revised automotive industry standard, and the first edition will be referred to as “IATF 16949.”
This new standard will supersede and replace the current ISO/IATF 16949:2016, defining the requirements of a quality management system for organizations in the automotive industry.
IATF 16949 is aligned with and refers to the most recent version of ISO’s quality management systems standard, ISO 9001:2015, fully respecting its structure and requirements. IATF 16949 is not a standalone quality management standard, but is implemented as a supplement to, and in conjunction with, ISO 9001:2015.
This means that an organization in the automotive sector seeking IATF 16949 certification must also comply with ISO 9001:2015.
INTENT BEHIND THE REVISION ISO standards are reviewed every five years to determine what changes, if any, are required to keep the standards up-to-date and relevant. Since the ISO 9001:2008 revision, business needs and expectations have changed significantly.
The new ISO 9001:2015 better meets customer requirements, adapts to new technologies, better integrates with complex supply chains, and addresses the need for more sustainable development initiatives.
This is accomplished through a better understanding of the organization’s context and relevant interested parties, and by taking appropriate actions to address risks and opportunities at every level.
IATF 16949 fully supports these changes in ISO 9001:2015 with additional requirements that better meet automotive industry needs. Alignment with the ISO 9001:2015 structure makes it easier for organizations that need to implement more than one quality management system standard.
If IATF 16949 is implemented and properly managed, an organization will:
Receive recognition from regulatory authorities
Produce safer and more reliable products
Meet or exceed customer requirements
Improve processes and documentation system
ISO/TS16949:2009 , the technical specification, was approved and issued in March 2002, as an automotive sector-specific QMS set of requirements which uses IATF 16949:2016 (verbatim) as its base.
It replaced ISO/TS16949:2002 based on ISO 9001:2000, and is intended to be an alternative to QS-9000:1998 and other national automotive OEM supplier requirements.
As an international ISO specification:
Anyone can acquire a copy of this International Technical Specification, ISO/TS16949:2002, through ANSI or other locations such as www.AIAG.org
Anyone can utilize this document to improve their Quality Management Systems
It is an international specification to which an organization can be certified by a 3rd party certification body or registrar
BUT - if your intent is to achieve 3rd party registration to satisfy the requirements of your subscribing automotive customer, then certain added subscribing customer (IATF member) - defined aspects of the registration process and the ISO/TS16949:2009 (called TS-2 from here forward) specification must be satisfied.
The International Automotive Task Force, IATF, has developed its own unique and proprietary registration process and requirements for organization registration, and conducts its own qualifying of registrars and of registrar auditors.
Subscribing Automotive OEM companies will only recognize and accept a TS-2 registration which has been conducted using the prescribed registration process ("rules" available from your registrar), and conducted by registrars that have been selected and contracted by the IATF or its regional offices such as the IAOB in Detroit. Registration to TS-2 by an IATF “selected” registrar is required before such a certificate can show the IATF mark and indicate IATF recognition,
The IATF has asked all registrars to assure that TS16949:2009 (TS-2) registrants meet the following applicability requirements:
The TS-2 definition of supplier applicability must apply to the organization seeking registration*1;
One of the registered organization’s customers must list TS-2 as one of the alternatives of a required standard to which its suppliers must comply;
Any tier may be registered if it has a direct customer (or potential customer) that requires either compliance or 3rd party registration to TS-2 or QS-9000; and
Evidence of being a potential supplier to a customer requiring TS-2 (or QS-9000, etc.) could include an RFQ issued to the organization, or the organization being on the bid list of the TS-2 subscribing customer.
IF YOU DO NOT QUALIFY FOR TS-2 3rd PARTY REGISTRATION
Those organizations and suppliers that do not qualify for IATF recognized registration to ISO/TS16949 , or which supply parts and services to a TS-2 registered organization, are encouraged (in some cases required) to maintain ISO 9001:2008/2000 registration.
Key Features of IATF 16949:2016
Produced part Approval Process which will be done at the first time manufacturing or Modification in the process or in product. Samples after clearance from QC department manufactured as per customer requirement will be sent for customer approval and after getting approval from customer will be used for standard samples or PPAP samples.PPS sheet & QC inspection report will be sent to the customer.
Process Parameter Sheet will be prepared after getting Approval from PPAP however the process parameter during first trial is being recorded & approval from customer is also taken. In PPS critical parameter of the Process will be recorded with the tolerance limit. PPS will be prepared on Every starting/Change in the Process.
Control Chart will be prepared for the stage control in the production process by QC as well as Production.
Statistical Process Control will be prepared for Every Product on First Trail/Modification in Product/Process
Measurement System Analysis will be carried out for Each Instrument, Each Instrument. In which same Product will be measured from same direction by different Person, Instrument. & data will be recorded for variation in Measurement Practice Variation.MSA is to be done for the SPC Verification.
Failure Mode & Effect Analysis is a structured analysis for identifying ways & methods in which the product or processes can fail and then plan to prevent those failures. FMEA is a proactive tool for reducing defects and non-conformities. (PPS Attached)
Management will do Analysis for the complaint received within certain time & customer will be informed for the CAPA.
Quality Control Document means QAP will be prepared For Each Product stating the Inspection Procedure.
Inspection Results will be Recorded in Report with the time of the Inspection by QC/PRD
PPM Rejection analysis will be Carried out Monthly/Weekly Basis for Incoming/in process/Final Rejection with the Reason for Rejection.
Identification of Product Mfg.
Management will establish system for Identification on the Product & Product Packing for Traceability of the Manufacturing Date.
Training Need Identification
