You are correct - LAYERED process auditing is something specific - not just regular old process auditing. I don't know much about it - I'm not in the automotive industry anymore.

Did you look at the other threads? There are 5 or 6 right at the bottom of this screen.

layered audits

I don't know about Chrysler or Suzuki, but GM has a program called layered
audits. The gist is as follows:

* Shop floor people (operators and/or supervisors) audit process details, daily or weekly
* Next level of management audits the audits, weekly or monthly
*Top management audits the middle management, monthly or quarterly

There are some differences from traditional audits here:

1) These audits may not be independent. The idea is to have people auditing
their own areas, and then have their bosses audit them.

2) Expectation is that there will be a detailed audit checksheet, with
very specific criteria. E.G. the injection molding dept will audit the barrel temps and pressures against the setup sheet for each machine once a day

If this sounds like the right program, I may be able to dig up a training
presentation on it. (It's part of what GM calls Quality System Basics).

best of luck
