What is ISO/TS 16949?
The ISO/TS 16949 is an ISO technical specification aimed at the further development of Quality Management Systems (QMS) that caters to continual improvement, defect prevention, and the reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain. In addition, the standard combines the AVSQ (Italian), EAQF (French) and VDA 6.1 (German) automotive requirement ISO/TS 16949, coupled with customer-specific requirements, defines the quality system requirements for use in the automotive supply chain.
The process approach is an integrated part of the ISO/TS 16949 methodology. Any activity or set of activities that uses resources to transform inputs to outputs can be considered as a process. For organizations to function properly, they must manage numerous interrelated and interacting processes. It is common to have the output of one process directly feed into the input of the next process. Process approach can be defined as the systematic identification and management of processes employed within organizations and particularly the interactions between such processes is referred to as the “process approach.”
