What QS-9000 Registered Suppliers Need to Prepare For

Chad Kymal and David Watkins write that, with ISO/TS 16949:2002’s requirements now finalized, your organization will benefit from understanding what the future will require of its processes and how best to make that transition to 21st century automotive quality. In the fourth article in a series on making the transition from QS-9000 to TS 16949:2002, they examine the changes made after the balloting draft, the impact TS 16949:2002 will have on suppliers and registrars, the challenges of ISO 9001:2000’s process and customer focus requirements, the affect of the TS on process maps, changes to establishing QMS scope and what is missing from the TS.
