Nine AHT employees are taking part in a three day internal auditor transition training class to learn about the impending change of ISO 9001:2008/TS 16949 to the new ISO 9001:2015/IATF 16949.
According to the Automotive Industry Action Group's website:
One of the automotive industry’s most widely used international standards for quality management, ISO/TS 16949, is evolving with the publication of a new global industry standard by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF). This latest version was developed with an unprecedented level of industry feedback and engagement by AIAG members representing North America.
ISO/TS 16949, a technical specification for automotive sector quality management systems, has become one of the most widely used international standards in the automotive industry, harmonizing the different assessment and certification systems in the global automotive supply chain.
On October 3rd, 2016 IATF 16949:2016 was published by the IATF and supersedes and replaces the current ISO/TS 16949, defining the requirements of a quality management system for organizations in the automotive industry.
This training class is a requirement for the AHT internal auditors to take and pass so they can effectively audit internally to the new standard. "The competencies of our internal auditors to find and address any deficiencies and/or risks within our QMS is a huge benefit to AHT and our customers, as their goal is to prevent errors and increase customer satisfaction." Stated John Ludeman, Director of Metallurgy and Quality Excellence.
They are being trained by Connie Mackey, Corporate Quality Systems Manager, who has over 20 years working in the quality field. Mackey is a senior member of the American Society of Quality (ASQ) and holds the following certifications with ASQ: Certified Quality Improvement Assoc., Certified Quality Technician, Certified Quality Auditor, Certified Quality Engineer, and Certified Quality Manager. She has also passed the 36 Hour ISO/IATF Certified Lead Auditor training course. Learn more about Advanced Heat Treat's quality certifications here: http://www.ahtweb.com/about/quality.aspx.
