TS 16949 and product audit frequency
TS 16949 states in 188.8.131.52 The organization shall audit rpoducts at appropriate stages of production and delivery to all specified requirements, such as product dimensions, functionality and labeling at a defiend frequency.
Porduction does set up approval and in-process inspection, shipping final on some if not most product. Quality does audits on all these inspections including dock audits. However, the frequency depends on several factors: customer complaints or returns, new operators, frequent internal failures and lastly work load.
I am wondering if the defined frequency means I have to state three a month or daily. Does anybody know?
