Control Plan & PFMEA Review Procedure?

How often do you guys review your control plans / PFMEA's?

I was recently hit on a customer audit for not having a procedure for reviewing these. I don't believe this is an ISO standard, But does anyone have a procedure for this? How do you go about reviewing/tracking your control plans/PFMEAS, and How often?

I was able to convince them to give us a point (They were scoring each question on a scale of 1-3) back for having it a part of our annual management review meeting, (We do weekly meetings, and an annual one).

But they didn't like the fact we only review them once per year, Which isn't true. I do review them myself often but the fact we do not have a procedure, As well as they were looking for something tracking when & how often we review each one.

Just looking for some examples while I write this procedure, I know It going to be a pain to convince anyone other than me to review them more than annually. Currently We review them during Print Rev changes as well, But again it's a hit or miss if its just me reviewing them or a team effort.

Other than one other thing, I scored really well, Which is a relief considering this was my first customer audit.

Thanks,
GunLake

To the best of my knowledge (don't have the standard on my desk to verify) there is no requirement for a written procedure for your review method. We do annual CP reviews which includes the Process Flow and PFMEA review, on as many different parts/processes as we can manage. Usually it is 3-4 parts per year for each of our engineers. A documented schedule is created and maintained (that way you have evidence for your management review).
I would STRONGLY urge you, when you develop the schedule, don't be TOO ambitious. Select your parts to be audited based on criteria that you develop - we use customer complaint history, scrap rate, and internal deviations to determine our initial target parts, but you may find something more appropriate for your processes.
