Abstract

This column attempts to explain the requirements related to special characteristics included in the automotive standard International Automotive Task Force 16949. Although all product characteristics are important, special characteristics are the highest priority. If you give equal attention to all product characteristics, the characteristics sensitive to manufacturing variation (special characteristics) may not receive sufficient attention.
