IATF 16949 Consulting, Training, and Auditing

automotive consulting

We are the best in the industries we serve, with the automotive IATF 16949 being one of those market segments.

Our founder is a former IATF certified auditor as well as some of our staff, who performed IATF 16949 audits for registrars in addition to consulting.  Our founder ran a certification body that was accredited to issue IATF 16949 certificates, and he attended quarterly meetings conducted by the International Automotive Oversight Bureau (IAOB/IATF) and the Big 3. Others on staff and our subcontractors have U.S., Japanese, and European automotive work experience in addition to their audit and consulting experience.


Positioned to Help You Succeed

Headquartered in Ohio with many of our staff and subcontractors in the Midwest and Southeast automotive regions, we are well positioned to support your IATF 16949 and MAQMSR consulting, certification, maintenance, training and internal audit needs.

As a former president of an IATF 16949 certification body, our founder had to train and develop auditors to the automotive core tools, and have auditors pass competency tests.  This experience supplemented our industry work experience and auditing of many companies to take the best practices and develop AIAG and VDA core tools training with a hands-on approach to help our clients best understand how to implement, utilize and maintain the AIAG and VDA core tools.


Keeping Pace

Keeping on top of ever-changing Customer Specific Requirements is critical to IATF 16949 certified companies, but also to your consultants.  Our staff and subcontractors have an extensive onboarding process, and on a continual basis, we require retraining and testing to ensure that subcontractors are aware of new Customer Specific Requirements and can consult and audit to the changed requirements for our clients.

Some clients are concerned about their consultant’s experience in their specific industry or manufacturing sector, with just IATF 16949 expertise not being good enough.  We are a medium sized consulting company and our staff and subcontractors have extensive experience in most industries.  90% of our competition are 1-person shops who don’t have the level of expertise and resources we can provide.  Contact us to see if we have the talent to support your needs and your industry.

“We here at Janesville would highly recommend SimpleQue to any company that is embarking on or wishing to maintain IATF certification. The transition period from ISO/TS 16949 to IATF 16949 was a bit overwhelming and confusing. SimpleQue helped ease the pressure of the transition period by clarifying and assisting in implementation of the new Standard’s requirements.” – Wanda Miller, Corporate Quality Manager – Janesville Acoustics, a Division of Jason Industries
