Does anyone know if the light rail industry [Metro Link] typically become compliant to TS/ISO/AS? What is typically used for First Article Inspections? Also, I would presume that normal automotive requirements of performing the FAI off 300pc production run and obtaining spc from 30pc capability study is not applicable on many parts being such the demand is not there to justify running those types of quantities.......what is typically agreed on?

Any information regarding light rail industry quality standards, etc. would be greatly appreciated.:thanks:

Don't know the accuracy of this, but here is an ASQ presentation on a DC Metro extension.

I have just moved to this industry and IRIS and ISO9001 are the most common for the quality management system.
TS I think is not really for railway unless someone would voluenterly pick that up.
For FAI common sense sounds a good starting point to be utilized :)

The required set of standards are mostly up to the car builder expectation, the one is doing the homologation.
And of course there is a different set of standards for EU and for the US.

Cheers!

No, wasn't aware of IRIS. Just considering getting into this sector and wanted to better understand requirements. I will keep doing research. Appreciate the feedback.

IRIS ("Light Rail") is a niche field. Research On! Let us know if you find something that you can add to this discussion thread.

Feedback from others who visit here will be appreciated.

And now, the obligatory ISO questions come to IRIS, as in,

"Section 4.2.1 - • Creation of a matrix showing cross references from IRIS requirements to the Quality Manual and the Business Management System"

Since IRIS has just finished importing the text of 9001:2008 into the IRIS system, how will it handle the 2015 version? Since no Quality Manual will be required, how does one maintain a matrix?

I guess this will be in play also -

"..Section 5.5.2

• In addition to a management representative, a member of management must be appointed to provide Customer Relationship Management. These roles may be held by the same person..."

hogheavenfarm,

No problem.

The documented information we use to describe our management system is entirely up to us so long as it works. And we may see that ISO 9001:2015 specifies competence requirements that will apply to top management.

Your process-based management system should easily conform to both IRIS and ISO 9001:2015.

Watch out for the specified IRIS knock-out requirements though!
