What Was Their Challenge?
CGS wanted to transition from ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015 and from ISO/TS 16949:2009 to IATF 16949:2016. However, when facing certification body recertification and surveillance audits, the CGS quality team wasn’t always sure they were 100% prepared.
Finding The Right Solution
SimpleQuE performed a gap analysis and provided detailed action plans to update their QMS (quality management system) and transition to the new standard. Working with simpleQuE allowed CGS to prepare for the audit and identify areas that needed to be worked on ahead of time. (At simpleQuE, we recommend this type of readiness audit, especially when it comes to IATF 16949® as there are so many requirements and factors to consider.)
CGS successfully transitioned to the new standards. SimpleQuE continues to provide training and consulting in addition to internal audits in compliance with IATF 16949®, following CGS’s internal audit procedure, IATF Rules 5th, and applicable customer-specific requirements. As a result, CGS’s quality management is up-to-date on the standards and requirements, demonstrating their commitment to being the best in their industry.
