According to Qs-9000, a Process Flow Diagram depicts the flow of material through the process and I have always tracked the flow of material to make the customer's product. However the TE manual does not state anything. But is references back to the Machinery Qualification Runoff Requirements, which stresses the repeatability and reliability of the tooling. So which do I follow, the customer part through the tooling or the material used to build the tooling? My assumption would be the customer part. That would be passed on to the customer at the time we deliver the tooling.

I'm 'bumping' this to the top of the list. Hopefully a TE guru will help out here. My understanding is it should follow your flow -- not the flow of the customer's part through your machine.

What type of tooling are you making? I have some process flow chart examples for metal stamping prog dies.

Hi again!
Bob we build transfer, progressive, blanking, forming and compound dies. Basically, if you need a tool to produce a part, we seem to build it. With that out of the way, I have just returned from KPMG's reliability and maintainability coarse. They could not stress enough that our product is our tooling. Therefore, follow your product though the FMEA, Control Plans and Process Flows!!!! The parts we produce is our verification. Any help I can get to verify that I'm on the right track will help.
Thanks Tina (email: tm@millard.on.ca)
