I attended a power point "training" session for ISO/TS 16949 today and I am confused about an acronym that was used. In the section about "non-conformance parts" the presentation stated "RIPs should not be shipped" and "RIPs should be labeled". Nobody knows what this means... not even the Quality Manager. Does anybody here know what it means? I don't know if the company I work for created the presentation or if they purchased it. Also, if the QM doesn't know what it means how do I, as a machine operator, know if I'm meeting TS 16949 requirements? What does "RIP" refer to?
