We are an IATF 16949 facility and are confused as to what the standard means when it discusses 8.4.2.3.1. What do they mean when they say suppliers of automotive product related software, or automotive products with embedded softwre, to implement and maintain a process for software quality assurance for their products.
I don't understand that and what is retained documentation information of a software development capability self assessment. We produce PCB's but the IC's are not programmed. The customer does this. Our test equipment has software from the manufacturer. Can someone tell me what this section means?

Yes, it's for suppliers who have software embedded in their products. It sounds like YOUR customer would fall under that, and as Jen says, not you. As you may be aware there are many computer controlled systems on vehicles these days: Body controllers, transmission controllers, engine controllers. The hardware for these all have software embedded - and the requirement affects those, possibly as a result of the VW "Dieselgate" case...
