All of your employees will need to be trained to work with the TS 16949 Quality System.

5. Design & Document

Design and document your TS 16949 Quality Manual and Procedures. The biggest portion of the project is looking at your current processes, and redesigning them to address all of the requirements of the standard. Once you have modified or developed processes to meet the standard, you will need to control those processes. Documenting the processes as Quality System procedures is part of this control.

6. Use & Improve Your QMS

Once your system is developed and documented, employees will follow the procedures, collect records and make improvements to the system. For approximately three months or more, your organization will run the QMS, collecting records.

7. Audit the QMS Performance

Use and improve your QMS – Is it working? You will conduct internal audits to see how your system is working and to improve it. This prepares you for an Audit by a Registrar. TS 16949 requires a process based audit to control the linkage between the processes.
