Core tools in IATF 16949 are referring to Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), Potential Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), Statistical Process Control (SPC) and Measurement System Analysis (MSA). These core tools are often difficult for users to master and it is even more challenging for auditors to understand and audit the application.
The latest publication of the IATF 16949 standard states explicitly that the internal auditor competency shall include as minimum “the understanding of applicable core tools requirements related to the scope of audit.”
This specially designed 2-day training module on core tools is to equip the automotive quality management system auditors with the essential knowledge on the core tools applications from the auditor perspectives. Practical exercises will be provided during the training to accelerate the positive learning outcomes for the participants.
