The work of preparing process audits is done by AIAG technical committees. The main task of technical committees is to prepare Automotive Standards and System Requirements.

Draft documents adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the Steering Committee for review and consensus approval. Publication of the documents requires approval by the Quality Steering Committee.

The Quality Steering Committee would like to acknowledge and thank the following individuals and their companies who have contributed time and effort to the development of this document. Nexteer Automotive – 3. These welding requirements are complementary to customer and product standards.

The WSA can be used to assess an organization s ability to meet the requirements in this assessment, as well as customer, regulatory, and the organization s own requirements. The WSA can also be used between an organization and its suppliers. In the WSA, the word shall indicates a requirement for purposes of the self assessment.

Failure to meet the requirements results in an assessment that is either Not Satisfactory or Needs Immediate Action. The word should indicates a recommendation. Where the term such as is used, any suggestions given are for guidance only.

The WSA, coupled with an internationally recognized quality management system and applicable customer-specific requirements, defines the fundamental requirements for welding management systems.


Welding System Assessments (CQI-15)

The WSA is intended to provide a common approach to a welding management system for automotive production and service part organizations. Assessment Process Ongoing assessments shall be conducted annually, unless otherwise specified by the customer, to reexamine the continuing compliance with the WSA. Each assessment shall include a review of the organization s systems using the WSA.

Successive Job Audits Section 6. Assessor shall possess welding knowledge. Evidence shall include a minimum of 5 years experience in welding or a combination of formal education in welding and welding experience totaling a minimum of 5 years 3. Assessor shall possess knowledge of and be familiar with the application of automotive quality core tools including statistical process control, measurement systems analysis, part approval, failure mode and effects analysis, and advanced quality planning.

If more than one assessor is required to meet the above qualifications, the lead assessor shall be the person meeting the requirements in item 1. The organization shall keep records as evidence of compliance to the requirements identified in the WSA, as well as all appropriate action plans to address any unsatisfactory ratings.

These records shall be readily available for review by any customer requiring compliance to the requirements within this document. Four Process Tables have been developed and the appropriate table s is to be referenced during the assessment.

The Process Tables are specific to welding processes as noted below: Floor and Material Handling Responsibility 3.

Process Controls and Confirmation 6. Essential Variables The Process Tables specify the tolerances of process parameters and the frequencies for checking process control parameters and parts. There are other reference materials that contain more information, however, the list is not meant to be inclusive.

The applicability is limited to the subject matter referenced. System Assessment, applies see CQI, 1. Record these processes on the WSA. Complete the WSA, determining the level of compliance. A minimum of one job audit Section 6 shall be performed during each assessment. Address each Not Satisfactory item and determine corrective action, including root cause analysis and weldjng of the corresponding corrective action s. The corrective action s shall be completed within 90 days.

Records of the corrective action, including verification, shall be maintained. Needs Immediate Action requires immediate containment of suspect product. Address each Needs Immediate Action item and determine corrective action sincluding root cause analysis and implementation of the corresponding corrective action s.

Assessments shall be conducted annually unless otherwise specified by the customer. Weldibg and Material Handling Responsibility Section 3: Process Controls and Confirmation. System Assessment Instructions for completing the Cover Sheet 1. Name of weldung facility being assessed. One form shall be used for each facility. The facility may have several buildings or physical locations in the same general area.

If there is a separate management team or different management system, then these locations shall be considered as separate facilities. The street address of the facility being assessed; P.

The fax number of the facility. Number of Employees at welving Facility: The number of employees, salaried and hourly, associated with the welding operation at this facility. Enter Y if this facility welds components for their own company.

Enter N if the company does not weld any components for their own company. Enter Y if this facility welds components for companies other than their own company. Enter N if this facility does not weld any components for other companies.

Enter the date s of the assessment. An alphanumeric format shall be used to avoid confusion with different numeric formats.

May 3 4, Date of Previous Assessment: System Assessment of this facility. Type s of Processing at this Facility: Place a checkmark to designate all welding process es performed at this facility. This information determines the appropriate Process Table that shall be used during the assessment.

Processes not listed on the cover sheet are not part of the System Assessment. Current Quality Certification s: The weld organization shall list their current quality certifications, e. If customer quality certification is given, then the year of the last assessment by the customer shall also be given. Date of Re-assessment if necessary: If Not Satisfactory findings were observed from the original assessment, then the weld organization shall address each item and determine correct action, including root cause analysis and implementation of the corresponding corrective action s.

The weldibg of the re-assessment shall be given here, and the appropriate Question s from Sections 1 5, in the original assessment, shall be modified to reflect that the evidence, relating to the implementation of the corrective action shas been observed.
