This is a two-day course for auditors who need to conduct the manufacturing process
and product audits on the plant floor as required by ISO/TS 16949:2009. The first
half of the day includes auditing fundamentals including performance- based audit
planning, conducting the audit, writing nonconformities and closing meeting. The
second day of the audit examines a customizable plant floor manufacturing-based
process/product checklist. What does the checklist mean? How do you sample? How
do you ensure shop floor standardization? For Chrysler suppliers, on the second
day Omnex can cover the use of layered audits and the use of layered auditing for
process and product audits as well. This class shows organizations how to combine
layered audits with manufacturing process audits and how to conduct product and
process audits simultaneously with the same auditors.
The course includes practical, hands on plant floor auditing, writing of nonconformities
and audit reporting. This is a great class for those interested in auditing the
Who Should Attend
Cell team leaders, maintenance technicians, quality associates, continuous improvement

This workshop requires participants to closely examine their operations and identify
the gaps in the Quality Management System (QMS) documentation used to plan the shop
floor controls. Internal audits need to examine the workings of the QMS. They should
concentrate on the key processes as documented in procedures and work instructions.
This workshop will establish the methodology for conducting these audits.
