I had always tried to make the argument that the customer had the responsibility to compile their requirements in a manual like those referenced. That stopped working several years ago as customer specific requirements became more of an issue. These days we have to search the world over for their requirements. A real PIA.
If the PPAP details were specific to the order, then I'd say customer requirements. If the PPAP details are general and apply to all orders and products then I'd say customer-specific requirements.So what would you call PPAP details specifically laid out in the terms of a PO?
I just joined the group but noticed your question is over 2 years old. Not sure my input is still useful. I am a 3P auditor and have just written a book for sharing on IATF 16949 compliance. My answer to your question is attached. You can download the full book, it is free.How can I differentiate between customer requirements and customer-specific requirements? I read the definitions in IATF 16949 but could use some help interpreting.
