Dear all,

is there anyone who has an example of dispositions to manage the following IATF 16949 requirement ? :

6.1.2.3 Contingency Plan
....
"The contingency plans shall include provisions to validate that the manufactured product continues to meet customer specifications after the re-start of production following an emergency in which production was stopped and if the regular shutdown processes were not followed".

Thanks in advance

Francois,

What you would do depends on your processes. Stopping production and "not following regular shutdown processes" covers a wide range of events. It could be a sudden machine failure, operators heath and safety at risk, natural disasters or even a power cut.

I'm in injection moulding so if we had an emergency shutdown we would revalidate the new first-off involving part inspection and process revalidation. We'd have to ensure mould heaters are back to temperature, material was conditioned correctly, process parameters are correct.

If you was machining you might be able to just press start and continue as you were. If you was plating or chroming you might have to scrap all work in process. If you was heat treating you might have to re-process all work in process.

It all depends on your processes. Look at them and ask yourself "if someone hit the emergency stop what would we have to do to ensure correct parts when we resume production?". What time windows are critical? What resources would we needed?

I hope this helps.

Really good summary by Johnny.

Simply put - You need to make sure when you come back up from the whatever caused the shutdown, your processes are running exactly as before and the product meets the same requirements.

If your machine which paints the widget royal blue is shut down; when it comes back up it better be painting the widgets it royal blue.
