ISO/IATF/TS 16949 Compliance
Few industries are impacted by dynamic compliance requirements more than automotive. Manufacturers competing in automotive have to balance cost, quality, and efficiency initiatives with demanding mandates set out by ISO/IATF/TS 16949 standards. Getting the management of ISO/IATF/TS 16949 standards right is vital for keeping up with the industry’s high bar for compliance, on-time deliveries, and quality.
ISO/IATF/TS 16949 compliance is essentially automotive’s version of ISO 9000. It is a quality management system created to ensure compliance is built into products and processes. The standard has a focus on defect prevention and the reduction of waste throughout the product lifecycle.
Automotive manufacturers struggle to maintain pace with the industry’s complex and often changing regulations. In many cases, this struggle originates from reliance on legacy approaches to managing quality management systems. Still, too many manufacturers aren’t leveraging modern automation and software technology to reduce this burden and mitigate all of the associated compliance risks.
