More Challenges of QS-9000 to TS 16949:2002 Transition

Chad Kymal and David Watkins write that, not only does an ISO/TS 16949:2002-conforming QMS need to consist of cross-functional processes that bind an organization together, but the key challenge in transitioning from QS-9000:1998 to the TS is understanding the customer flows originating from and returning to the customer.
