IATF 16949:2016

  • IATF 16949:2016 Internal Auditor Course

    Internal Audit is a mandatory requirement of IATF 16949:2016. Success of a Quality Management System depends on effective internal auditors. Hence it is imperative for an organization to have trained internal auditors for implementation and maintenance of their management system. Quality Austria conducts a comprehensive two-day training program delivered by faculty with wide experience and auditing skills.

    This program is designed so that IATF 16949:2016 internal auditor(s) thoroughly understand their role and acquire the learning needed to perform effective audits in their respective organizations.

  • Workshop on SPC & MSA

    Statistical process control (SPC) is the application of statistical methods to the monitoring and control of a process to ensure that it operates at its full potential to produce conforming product. Under SPC, a process behaves predictably to produce as much conforming product as possible with the least possible waste. While SPC has been applied most frequently to controlling manufacturing lines, it applies equally well to any process with a measurable output.

    Much of the power of SPC lies in the ability to examine a process and the sources of variation in that process using tools that give weight to objective analysis. Variations in the process that may affect the quality of the end product or service can be detected and corrected, thus reducing waste as well as the likelihood that problems will be passed on to the customer. With its emphasis on early detection and prevention of problems, SPC has a distinct advantage over other quality methods. In addition to reducing waste, SPC leads to process cycle time reductions and improvements in yield which have made SPC a valuable tool from both a cost reduction and a customer satisfaction standpoint.

    Measurement System Analysis (MSA) is a specially designed experiment that seeks to identify the components of variation in the measurement. The purpose of Measurement System Analysis is to qualify a measurement system for use by quantifying its accuracy, precision, and stability. A Measurement Systems Analysis evaluates the test method, measuring instruments, and the entire process of obtaining measurements to ensure the integrity of data used for analysis (usually quality analysis) and to understand the implications of measurement error for decisions made about a product or process. MSA analyzes the collection of equipment, operations, procedures, software and personnel that affects the assignment of a number to a measurement characteristic.SPC and MSA is an important element of quality management systems – IATF 16949:2016

  • Workshop on APQP, PPAP & FMEA

    Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) and Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) are important elements of IATF 16949:2016 which is used in the automotive supply chain to establish confidence in component suppliers and their production processes.
    APQP is designed to help organizations effectively plan the design and development of a new product. APQP serves as a guide in the development process and also a standard way to share results between suppliers and automotive companies.
    PPAP is used in the automotive supply chain to establish confidence in component suppliers and their production processes, by demonstrating that all customer engineering design record and specification requirements are properly understood by the supplier and that the process has the potential to produce product consistently meeting these requirements during an actual production run at the quoted production rate.
    FMEA is a procedure in product development and operations management for analysis of potential failure modes within a system for classification by the severity and likelihood of the failures
