Ford FMEA-Focused CSR and IATF 16949The New Requirements for All Ford Suppliers

Ford has recently announced that all suppliers will have to comply with their new IATF 16949-focused Customer Specific Requirements (CSR). It is vital that all Ford suppliers, regardless of location, prepare to meet the new requirements by the end of 2022. The good news: PLATO can help!

Ford’s FMEA Improvement Plan: What You Need to Know

To comply with Ford’s new IATF-16949 specific requirements, there are several specific items suppliers will need to adopt:

  • All suppliers will need to have FMEA Software. Excel will not suffice.
  • The ability to create and maintain “Foundation” DFMEA and PFMEAs
  • The ability to create and present a clear linkage between “foundation FMEAs”, part FMEAs, controls plans and work instructions.
  • The ability to build Reverse FMEAs
  • The ability to show document “problem solving” in Foundation FMEA and Part FMEAs
