ISO/TS 16949 Implementation

As consultants, we can provide guidance and expertise to assist your steering committee or team in interpreting, implementing, and obtaining certification to ISO/TS 16949. Our approach results in a value-adding, self-sustaining management system.

Steudel and Mann LLC, can help your company through the implementation process by:

  • Educating management and helping to gain commitment to a value-adding quality management system implementation process.
  • Establishing a steering group and facilitating the definition of the company objectives and scope of ISO/TS 16949 implementation.
  • Conducting a thorough "gap analysis" to define precisely what needs to be accomplished to bring the quality management system and documentation into compliance.
  • Establishing an implementation program and corrective action plan.
  • Preparing and revising the quality management system documentation.
  • Providing training on automotive core tools, including APQP, PPAP, FMEA, SPC, and MSA.
  • Providing training for internal auditors and leading internal audits.
  • Helping to select a registration agency that meets your organization's needs.
  • Performing a pre-certification audit.
  • Instituting any pre-assessment corrective actions (if required).
  • Monitoring the official third-party assessment to ensure successful registration on the first attempt.

After registration, we can continue to serve you with on-going internal audits, reviews, training, and support to sustain continual improvement, but our primary goal is to help develop a quality management system which your organization understands and can operate independently.
