IATF 16949:2016 Requirements (Online Training)


Course Objectives

The International Automotive Task Force (IATF) is an ‘ad hoc’ group of automotive manufacturers (members include BMW, DaimlerChrysler, Fiat, Ford, General Motors, PSA Puegeot Citroen, Renault SA, Volkswagon etc) and their respective trade associations formed to achieve harmonization of quality management systems for the automotive industry.

Working with ISO (International Organization for Standardization), the IATF published ISO/TS 16949 in June 2009 and now has been replaced by IATF 16949:2016, published in October 2016.

.Participants will learn to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the role of the Quality Management Principles and what principles changed
  • Organize documentation according to IATF 16949:2016 to demonstrate effective planning, operation, and control of processes
  • Demonstrate an understanding of how risk-based thinking supports and improves the understanding and application of the process approach
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the requirement changes from ISO/TS 16949:2009 to IATF 16949:2016
  • Assess the level of complexity of transitioning to IATF 16949:2016 and develop a consistent planning for transition
  • Determine potential strategies and actions to ensure effective implementation

Target Audience
