We are implementing this standard(?) as part of Q1. We don't want too; Ford said do it or else!!

Has anybody got any good tips, ideas, ways of convincing Ford that we comply to it when in reality we don't?

MS9000 is the Ford specific Materials Management Systems Requirements. Apparently, Ford does not think that QS9000 effectively deals with materials and logistics requirements so they developed MS9000. It is now mandatory if a company wants Q1.

I thought I'd weigh in on the board with this old and forgotten thread about an old and forgotten standard I affectionally refer to as "BS"9000.

It's fraught with redundancies to QS, what's not redundant is poorly written but hey, Ford is so happy with it that it's unchanged since Apr '95.

The upside is that no one at Ford really knows what the standard is asking for either so just be confident with your "BS" and compliance is a breeze.
