Dear all,

Clause 7.5.2.1 requires all processes to be validated. How does this clause apply for machining industry?

Thanks Mr.Somashekar.

But will only machine capability suffice to meet this clause of TS.

What about OEE?

OEE is a "best practices" way to monitor and improve the effectiveness of your
manufacturing processes (i.e. machines, manufacturing cells, assembly lines).
Validation is the assurance activity that gives confidence in your machining process. The confidence that the output desired will be consistently met, and that you are aware of all such changes that may be faced by you, and that you take necessary actions to reaffirm this confidence.

Andrews,

It looks like overkill until you realize it is possible to design and run a machining process so that its products need no post machining verification.

In reducing quality costs, customers are asking suppliers to take action that eliminates the root causes of external failure, internal failure and now they are focused on reducing the costs of appraisal.

...all by investing actions that prevent nonconformity.

It is way of the future to remain competitive.

How about a rivetting operation where the input pressure can be varied?
Andrews,

Your validated riveting process will specify the input pressure for a conforming joint.

It may also specify limits on all the other important variables that must be controlled to produce a conforming joint.
