IATF 16949 GM CSR 10.2.4 Error-proofing requirement

#1
We have been reading GM IATF 16949 CSR posted September 6, 2017 § 10.2.4 Error-proofing clause:

"Error proofing devices shall be tested to failure or simulated failure at the beginning of each shift at a minimum, otherwise according to the control plan."

I'm curious if anyone has interpreted this as something other than the beginning of each shift because the control plan calls out something different.

In other words, ignoring the "at the beginning of each shift at a minimum" part and only following "according to the control plan."

If so, have you had the opportunity to discuss this with an IATF auditor by any chance?

Great observation/question @vision ;
This certainly highlights the actuality that between the IATF requirements and the multitudinous CSR, there is no shortage of redundancies, contradictions, ambiguities, etc...etc..etc..etc....

The CSR you quote is certainly poorly written.

I counsel as follows...
1- The statement opens with "...beginning of each shift at minimum..." Therefore, unless your organization has some written exemption, this is the minimum expected GM requirement.
2- The statement "..., otherwise according to the control plan" intends to indicate that ONCE the "beginning of each shift" minimum is met, any additional frequency may be defined in the control plan . (e.g. GM requires beginning of each shift...., whereas, your organization's Control Plan may require beginning AND end of each shift . In this case, the control plan (because it's requirements are GREATER than the GM CSR,) supersedes the GM CSR.


Hope this helps.

Be well.
