Developing TS-16949 Internal Audit Schedule - Seeking Example and Advice

Regarding the requirement to perform "system audits" -- I see fifteen areas of emphasis to begin the work of developing an "Internal Audit Schedule".

  • Avoiding the elemental approach, and trying to look at processes, I'd like to schedule more time to those areas which are more complex, and therefore require more questions to fully explore the level of implementation/excellence.

  • I've factored in the additional "process audits". We have eight zones in assembly, and two zones in press.

  • I'd like to conduct most audits within a 45 minute time-limit, as to lessen disruptions to our normal daily product realization efforts.

Does anyone have a sample internal audit schedule that could provide some guidance?

Area of Emphasis % Allocation
Continuous Improvement 1%
Corrective and Preventive Action 2%
Customer Satisfaction 1%
Design and Development - 1 9%
Design and Development - 2 9%
Document Control and Control Of Records 3%
Internal Audit 2%
Internal Lab 1%
Management Responsibility and High Level Data - 1 7%
Management Responsibility and High Level Data - 2 7%
Materials and Suppliers 3%
Measuring Devices 4%
Planning Process Design - 1 9%
Planning Process Design - 2 9%
Preventive and Predictive Maintenance 1%
Product Realization - 1 8%
Product Realization - 2 8%
Product Realization (Assy - Cell 1) 1%
Product Realization (Assy - Cell 2) 1%
Product Realization (Assy - Cell 3) 1%
Product Realization (Assy - Cell 4) 1%
Product Realization (Assy - Cell 5) 1%
Product Realization (Assy - Cell 6) 1%
Product Realization (Assy - Cell 7) 1%
Product Realization (Assy - Cell 8) 1%
Product Realization (Press - Zone 1) 1%
Product Realization (Press - Zone 2) 1%
Resource Management 2%
Tooling Management 1%

I'm sure I could just lay it all out on a spreadsheet, but I was wondering if anyone had a scheduling methodology they were particularly proud of?

attached is the schedule we used for our last internal audit. It worked well for us (cut the time from 1 week to 1 day.
Hope it gives you some ideas.

TownDawg,

Our QMS system is broken down into 14 processes.

Each process has a turtle & process map.

Some processes have more than 1 shift.

Attached is our QMS audit plan.

We are also starting to audit manufacturing processes. These are more control plan specific.

I have also attached our Manufacturing Process Audit Plan.

Hope this provides a comparison for you.

TownDawg,

Your work is impressive. Would you explain the various markings on your QMS Audit Plan (e.g., A, B, C, checkmarks).

Thanks,
Doug

Douglas,

Thanks for the comments. "Praise from the praiseworthy is above all value".

Key is nothing too complicated.

The letters on the plan denote a particular shift.

Ticks indicate in which month a process is scheduled to be audited.

On the previous paper controlled copy I used to note down audit dates in each box & draw little arrows to the month box for the follow-up audit date.

I dont have any fedback from our assessment body on whether we can do that with electronic documents yet.

Sorry Dave B, :D

I do appreciate the expert knowledge that consultants bring, its just that IMHO our (my) previous format was better (The Audit Plan is mine, all mine!!), but Top Management will have their way.......
