I moved this thread to the QS9000 forum.

Typically in an audit you have to know what your responsibilities are, make sure people are doing what they are supposed to be doing and things like that.

Have you never been audited before?

No I have not been audited before, I just got the jog and the surprise, I have been looking for information and I finally found a Procedures book (1998 last revision, probabbly obsoletes )I am going to start reading. :confused:

Congrats on the promotion - I hope!

Here is the QS requirement. If you can tell a little story (supported by facts) for all of this you'll be fine. I little preparation will likely make it go a lot easier. You probabaly have a lot of this work going on, you just need to spin it in QS 9000 terms.

Preventive Maintenance - 4.9.g.1

The supplier shall identify key process equipment and provide appropriate resources for machine/equipment maintenance and develop an effective planned total preventive maintenance system. At a minimum, this system shall include:

· A procedure that describes planned maintenance activities
· Scheduled maintenance activities
· Predictive maintenance methods - These methods should include a review of the appropriate items such as the manufacturer's recommendations, tool wear, optimization of uptime, correlation of SPC data to preventive maintenance activities, important characteristics of perishable tooling, fluid analysis, infrared monitoring of circuits and vibration analysis
· A procedure providing for packaging and preservation of equipment, tooling and gaging
· Availability of replacement parts for key manufacturing equipment
· Documenting, evaluating and improving maintenance objectives

Slightly:topic: but
I think this is the only place that there is a request for objectives in general in QS9000
· Documenting, evaluating and improving maintenance objectives

Hi quieroentrar - Welcome to the cove!:bigwave:

Are you talking about an internal audit or a surveillance audit from your registrar?

What I would do in your shoes is go find the Management Rep or whoever is in charge of the Internal Audits and ask what to expect.

I hope you like your new job!!:yes:
