This is my first post..............please be gentle on me.
has anyone got any examples of some turtle diagrams. I have seen Blank ones but i need a bit of help with pieceing it together with actual processes (for example contract review).
Thanks in advance.
PS. I am just starting on ISO TS 16949 journey, and im all the way from sunny Australia !!
Welcome, Carl! As you read through other posts, you'll see we have several active members from Australia, always full of good advice and questions.
Over time, a number of our Covers have become very proficient in designing and using Turtle Diagrams (a Phil Crosby creation, I believe.)
If you are working with TS16949, I understand AIAG discusses Turtles in one of its manuals.
If you look up above the first post on a page, you'll see a navigation bar with the following buttons.
Click on the "search" button and click "advanced"
you'll see a dialog page where you can enter your search by key word.
I used "turtle diagram" as my key word, looking for individual posts and got 26 hits.
These two struck me as having clear attachments which lead you through a Turtle Diagram creation.

Turtle Diagram Examples
These are by no means the entire range of Turtle-related posts and attachments, just two which I got in less than 5 minutes.
It's important to stress there's no reason to reinvent the wheel each time you come across a perplexing situation. Odds are good someone else had a similar problem and has already shared his solution. That's why using the Search function here at the Cove is almost always a good first choice before posting a new inquiry about a Quality-related question.
Try the search function and see what you get, then write again and let us know how your search turns out.
