#1
I am tasked with getting an internal audit team to audit all elements of the IATF standard in a 3 year period. I have no $ to purchase software to have questions and checklists available for using. I am going to start our audits in February and have sections 5.1, 5.2 , 5.3 and 8.1, 8.2 to complete before March ends. Is there anyone who has checklists that I could use? Or do I have to write the questions all from scratch? I am used to working in a company that has all this software and a program...

I have used this site in years past for Metrology help and am hoping someone on here has something I could use. Thanks in advance,

Your internal audits shouldn't be done to an IATF checklist. Turning the standard into a set of questions isn't an internal audit. If you do this, a smart IATF CB auditor will write you a MAJOR for NOT auditing:

* Your processes
* Using the "Automotive Process Approach"
* Customer specific Requirements (as applicable)
*and possibly the "Core Tools"
Since not of these things are mentioned in (in detail) in IATF. Can I ask if you've taken some IATF internal auditor training? I suspect that you haven't. Or that the training is ineffective (if you have) because you would know this information....

Thank you Andy, I have in the past done TS 16949 and recently did IATF 16949 Internal Audit Training, but this company that I have recently started at does not have anything in place, and what they do have is in Excel and not in English, rather Korean. We did get a major NC from our HQ team for not having this done, but I have no tools, software or programs to implement this. I did recently get us AIAG membership which no one here thought I would be able to get for us.

I thought checklists would be a good start to have when going into our various areas to start the audits.

Yes! Indeed, they can be (but not for internal audits) - if you are starting out, can I ask where you are located? USA? State?
Andy, we are in the USA and I don't want to make my company look bad by any means. I have translated many documents already here and that takes time. In the past have had two or three people on audit team and audited various areas using scoring system with a completed report when finished where we audit each department on each shift.

There is nothing here, but we have made tremendous improvements since I started. We have done MSA training, Control Plan training, IATF stuff and are making progress.
