Internal Auditing

The “automotive process approach” for internal auditing to ISO/TS 16949:2009 (TS-3) is a significant departure from the way most organizations have designed their audit programs. Learn the new steps of audit scheduling, planning, execution and reporting, needed to adapt from a compliance-based approach to a performance based one that promotes understanding of the effectiveness and efficiency of your quality management system. We will examine system manufacturing, process and product audits through case studies and workshops.

Core Tools

The course reviews the relationship between the five core tools and their application within ISO/TS 16949. Starting with an examination of the AIAG reference manuals, followed by instruction on the more common approaches, we then utilize workshops to provide hands on experience with each tool. No prerequisite is required for this course but it serves as an excellent primer for initial users of the tools and a practical refresher for those familiar with them.
