IATF 16949:2016 consists of ISO 9001:2015 plus additional requirements for automotive suppliers, and many of these features have universal as opposed to automotive-specific applications. ISO 9001 users can benefit by adding them to their own quality systems as well.

Why Should You Attend:

The first-degree black belt rank in martial arts ("sho dan") means "first step" as opposed to "master" or "expert." ISO 9001:2015 is similarly just the first step toward world-class performance in not only quality but also cost and delivery performance. IATF 16949:2016 expands on ISO 9001 with additional features that apply to all industries as opposed to just the automotive industry, and ISO 9001 users can apply them to close dangerous gaps in their quality management systems and also realize substantial bottom line results.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • IATF 16949 expands on ISO 9001 and fills in potentially dangerous gaps that are not covered by ISO 9001.
  • Clause 4, Context of the Organization
    • IATF 16949 clause 4.3.1 extends the scope of the quality management system to supporting functions
  • Clause 5, Leadership
    • IATF 16949 adds the need to address effectiveness and efficiency as opposed to just quality.
    • Employees can stop the line (as practiced at the Ford Motor Company long ago, and then at Toyota) to protect quality.
  • Clause 6, Planning
    • IATF 16949 requires a process for preventive action, and adds best practice deployment.
    • It also addresses the supply chain very explicitly, as supply chain interruption can shut down the best factory on earth.
      • Clause 7, Support
        • IATF 16949 adds lean manufacturing to the support requirements. This is important because poor quality, the focus of ISO 9001, is but one of Toyota's Seven Wastes and often not the most expensive one.
        • ISO 9001 does not require measurement system analysis (MSA) explicitly; IATF 16949 does, when it is applicable to the gages or instruments in question.
        • Employee empowerment requires a documented process.
      • Clause 8, Operation
        • Design and development brings in failure mode effects analysis (FMEA) for which AIAG and its German counterpart introduced a new manual that improves enormously on previous methods.
        • Control plans and standard work also are depicted, along with the need for supplier development.
        • Total productive maintenance (TPM) offers additional protection of quality and continuity of operations.
        • IATF 16949 also reinforces product traceability.
      • Clause 9, Performance Evaluation
        • IATF 16949 adds process capability studies and process failure mode effects analysis (PFMEA) which, while used by many ISO 9001 users, are not depicted in the standard.
        • Management review is to address cost of poor quality (for which AIAG publishes a manual) and also effectiveness and efficiency.
      • Clause 10, Improvement
        • IATF 16949 requires a documented process for problem solving, and AIAG's Effective Problem-Solving process (CQI-20) is an excellent off the shelf process. This is particularly important because inadequate corrective and preventive action (CAPA) is a major source of ISO 9001 and IATF 16949 findings.
        • A documented process also is required for error-proofing (poka-yoke) and also continual improvement.

        All of this shows that IATF 16949 adds very valuable features that apply to most industries as opposed to just the automotive sector, and these features do not appear in ISO 9001 even though it is the foundation (first step) of IATF 16949.
