Clause-2 of IATF-16949:- Normative References

When we check clause 3 of IATF16949, it is explained as below–

2. Normative References

    See ISO 9001-2015 requirements

2.1 Normative and informative references 

What ISO 9001-2015 say about Normative references in Clause 2?

The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively [Driven from standard], referenced in this document and are indispensable[absolutely necessary] for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.

2.1 Normative and informative references

Annex A (Control Plan) is a normative part of this Automotive QMS standard. 
Annex B (Bibliography – automotive supplemental) is informative, which provides additional information intended to assist the understanding or use of this Automotive QMS standard.

Annex A: Control Plan

Control plan is normative reference of Automotive QMS standard, industry will make control plan for each automotive component, in which quality control of product to be define on each process. 
A.1 Phases of the control plan
A control plan covers three distinct phases, as appropriate:
  1. Prototype: a description of the dimensional measurements, material, and performance tests that will occur during building of the prototype. The organization shall have a prototype control plan, if required by the customer.
  2. Pre launch: a description of the dimensional measurements, material, and performance tests that occur after prototype and before full production. Pre-launch is defined as a production phase in the process of product realization that may be required after prototype build.
  3. Production: documentation of product/process characteristics, process controls, tests, and measurement systems that occur during mass production.

Control plans are established at a part number level; but in many cases, family control plans may cover a number of similar parts produced using a common process. Control plans are an output of the quality plan.

NOTE 1– lt is recommended that the organization require its suppliers to meet the requirements of this Annex.

NOTE 2– For some bulk materials, the control plans do not list most of the production information. This information can be found in the corresponding batch formulation/recipe details.

A.2 Elements of the control plan

A control plan includes, as a minimum, the following contents:
General data:-
  • control plan number;
  • issue date and revision date, if any;
  • customer information (see customer requirements);
  • organization’s name/site designation;
  • part number(s);
  • part name/description;
  • engineering change level;
  • phase covered (prototype, pre-launch, production);
  • key contact;
  • part/process step number;
  • process name/operation description;
  • functional group/area responsible.
Product control
  • product-related special characteristics
  • other characteristics for control (number, product or process)
  • specification/tolerance.
Process control-
  • process parameters (including process settings and tolerances)
  • process-related special characteristics
  • machines, jigs, fixtures, tools for manufacturing (including identifiers, as appropriate)
  • evaluation measurement technique;
  • error-proofing;
  • sample size and frequency;
  • control method.
Reaction plan
