Hello!

Can anyone recommend some good book explaining ISO/TS 16949 requirements?

The best one I've found so far is "Automotive Quality Systems Handbook: second edition" by David Hoyle. I rate this book as very good but a bit old (2005). I know that ISO/TS revision from 2009 didn't introduce any significant changes but some new trends in interpretation / implementation of the standard could arise.

Thanks for your help!

I work in China where almost all manufacturers have "TS16949" certificates and 90% of factories are non-compliant. I'd like to find a book written with TS16949 in mind which teaches about quality control and explains the most important bits about TS16949 in layman's terms. Basically a guide of the top ten things a manufacturer could do to bring their factory more into compliance with TS16949. Something that is written to help companies improve their quality along the road to TS16949 compliance. Like a "TS16949 for Dummies" book. Does anybody know of such a book?

Has anybody ever heard of the book “What Every Employee Needs to Know About ISO/TS 16949:2002” by ISO Pocket Guides (now called QMS Pocket Guides). This seems like a book that might meet my expectations but I am not sure.

David Hoyle's book is great. Still applicable to the current version. Did you check Karen Welch's book?

Must be a small book! Every employee doesn't, in fact, need to know very much about ISO/TS 16949!

I do not believe that someone should even author a book on TS16949 for dummies. Use the book by Hoyle. Managing the TS16949 requires more than just a dummies point of view.

I also recommend the ELSMAR COVE for all your challenges. The members of this forum are consultants of high caliber.
