I need a synopsis /inter linkage of ISO/TS 16949 and TQM.
In case an organisation is applying for Deming Prize (TQM Implementation award) what activities need to be incorporated in additon to TS compliance.
I am not a Deming Prize expert. However, you could obtain the application criteria and compare those with the requirements of ISO/TS16949:2002.
The requirements of Section 5 (management responsibility) and Section 8 (measurement, analysis and improvement) definitely align with the Deming Prize criteria.
You need to do some work because I have never seen a point-by-point comparison. It is doable IMHO.
