Auditing project scope

The project scope was to do 2nd party audits for all system and manufacturing process audits in the organization. The audits were done based on the ISO 9001:2015 and IATF 16949:2016 requirements. In the scope was: Global Supply Chain Management, HR, Management with IT and Finance, Manufacturing Engineering with Maintenance, Logistics, Operations, Product Engineering, Quality Assurance and Launch Management according to Quality Management System processes in Borg Warner. Additionally in auditing project scope there were five VDA 6.3 manufacturing process audits in the scope P2 to P7 performed.


The target was to execute all internal audits in Borg Warner according to annual auditing program for all defined processes. The idea was also to have a perspective from external auditor for identifying opportunities for improvements for Quality Management System. At the end the goal was to use audit reports as an evidence of meeting auditing requirements. Also the goal was to pass successfully the IATF 16949:2016 3rd party audit.
