OK, another fallacy! Good stuff! You don't HAVE to have a whole year's worth of audits scheduled out. Indeed, contrary to what many people think, it's almost impossible to do that without a very fine, calibrated and verified crystal ball!
I agree that it's impossible to stick to an audit schedule a year out, but I do one anyway to keep track of what needs to be covered over the course of the year and as changes get made adjust accordingly. I deliberately didn't tie my hands in writing that procedure because it needs flexibility to be effective. Besides, we're a custom shop without a separate QC department so if I couldn't move my auditors and audits around to accommodate crunch time someone would have cut my brake lines by now.
