Quality checks for pressurized hydraulic hose assembly

ISO 9001:2015 doesn't care what checks you should do on hoses and crimps. You need to decide what's important to you. Have you done an FMEA on the manufacturing processes for the hoses and crimps? WHat problems do you hear reported from customers? What causes internal scrap etc?

ISO 9001:2015 isn't about quality checks on product. It's a Quality Management System. Do you have access to a copy? I'd encourage you to read it sometime. It's not long.

Our process for fabricating pressurized hydraulic hoses revealed no evidence of how the process was validated to ensure the assemble meets the intended purpose for pressurized hoses and withstanding the required hydraulic pressures experienced in the field...the only data available was dimensional assembly data with no indication of actual pressure/performance testing/validation of this process to achieve the intended purpose and validate the dimensional data as being proper/adequate.
