Reasons to Continue QS-9000 in a Company?

Reasons for continued QS-9000

This is an open question:

Why does a company currently strive to meet a soon outdated QS-9000, whether new or continuing?

I need some ideas so I can start a pole. I already have a few reasons , but the more the merrier!

Having to maintain TE-9000 is our reason. Our Q-1 is based on TE in the production die design area. IMO it only takes a little constructive thought in order to maintain the "INTENT" of TE and still have a system compiant to 16949.

Easier to implement

We are implementing QS at our sister company, an aluminum Foundry, because it is easier to bring them on board to our parent company registration as a scope expansion. Though, we all have to transition soon thereafter to TS. The QS scope expansion is a piece of cake compared to implementing TS from zero.

Even though we are switching to TS here is a thought. If you are Tier two or below.....why spend the money until you have too?

Value added is the name of the game right?

Oh wait a minute....what did I say.....unless you walk the walk then it's value added there is there!


Sorry folks.....just been another long day in the trenches!!!!!!!!
