A Road Map to 21st Century Automotive Quality

Radley M. Smith writes that the writing is on the wall for the vast majority of automotive sector suppliers: TS 16949:2002 is the future of automotive quality. Smith notes that the greatest challenge for a QS-9000-registered organization will not be new requirements, but rather coming to terms with the process orientation of ISO 9001:2000 that is the foundation of the next edition of TS 16949. To help you become familiar with the final draft of TS 16949:2002, Smith provides a comprehensive matrix to help you map your existing QS-9000-based quality system.
