What is ISO/TS 16949 ?
The ISO/TS16949 is an ISO technical specification aiming to the development of a quality management system that provides for continual improvement, emphasizing defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain. It is based on the ISO 9001 and the first edition was published in March 2002 as ISO/TS 16949:2002.
It was prepared by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) and the “Technical Committee” of ISO. It harmonizes the country-specific regulations of Quality-Management-Systems.
About 30 percent of the more than 100 existing automobile manufacturers affiliate the requirements of the norm but especially the large Asian manufacturers have differentiated, own requirements for the quality management systems of their corporate group and their suppliers.
Content of the specification :
Aim of the standard is to improve the system and process quality to increase customer satisfaction, to identify problems and risks in production process and supply chain, to eliminate its causes and to examine taken corrections and preventive measures for their effectiveness. The focus is not on the discovery, but on the avoidance of errors. The eight main chapters of the standards are:
- Section 1-3: Introduction and Preface
- Chapter 4: Quality Management System (general requirements, control of documents and records)
- Chapter 5: Responsibility of the management
- Chapter 6: Management of resources
- Chapter 7: Product realization
- Section 8: Measurement, Analysis and Improvement
The process-oriented approach to business processes that is addressed in the ISO 9001:2008 is the base of the standard.
A key requirement of ISO / TS 16949:2009 is the fulfillment of customer-specific requirements, set up by the automotive manufacturer in addition to the quality management system of their suppliers. This may have decisively contributed to the worldwide recognition of the TS by many manufacturers.
