i have a problem i cannot figure out and it is related to this discussion
I am hoping someone can help me
our little company is not TS certified but we started to supply to some automotive customers so we occasionally are asked to do PPAP
two months ago - we had our first and only VDA audit
we had explained to the auditor we are only ISO 9001 certified which he said its ok - he would only audit our QM system
then the audit happened - wasnt that bad
but the auditor left me with OFI and one - i have no idea how to close
we had closed all other points but i am holding closing all the action plan and reply to the customer because i have no clue what he want us to do
quoted point from his report - Releases of the suppliers should be implemented, a monitor including the status of each supplier has to be done.
i have tried to ask his advice but all he gave me was more requirements but no explanation what to do to be compliant
quoted here his reply to my email -
According to the ISO/TS and the VDA standard, every part for automotive have to be approved with the supplier.
For each approval, you have to send a release (Could be conditional release if there are some deviations)
You can create a system to validate the process and the products with the suppliers. Like a PPAP system with a final release at the end of the process.
can someone please tell me what we have to do - send me some example ???
i have no idea
