The Ford IATF 16949 Customer Specific Requirements (CSR) were updated in November of 2021 with several important changes that became effective as of January 03, 2022 and were required to be implemented by July 1, 2022 for all programs that have not completed job 1 by that date. Below are the noteworthy additions to the latest CSR:
Do you currently have FMEA software in place? Are you able to create Foundation FMEAs that serve as benchmarks for consistently and align with Part FMEAs and control plans? As these moves show an OEM shift toward AIAG-VDA FMEA methodology, are you prepared to make the transition?
FMEAQuest helps you completely manage all of your Design FMEAs, Process FMEAs and Control Plans and a provides automatic linkages across the entire process, including special characteristic designations. When you make a change in one area, it automatically drives the required changes across the entire process. As you build an FMEA, the Control Plan is automatically created. With the additional abilities to create family and foundational FMEAs and a completely rebuilt risk analysis to effectively identify action priorities, you’ll easily meet the new Ford CSR requirements and be prepared to transition from AIAG to the VDA method.
