FASTPCBA owns the Basic Requirement to Automotive PCBs
Automotive PCB manufacturers should conform firstly to regulations of ISO9001.FASTPCBA is fully compliant with the ISO9001 quality management system and is committed to adhering to the strictest standards in automotive pcb manufacture and assembly.
Automotive products have their own particularities,too.At the beginning of 21st century, compatible with ISO9001 standards, a new quality control system in automotive industry was published, that is, ISO/TS16949,now is update to IATF-16949.
ISO/TS16949 is a set of technological regulations in global automotive industry. Based on ISO9001, with special demands in automotive industry added, it focuses more on defect prevention, decreasing quality fluctuation and waste that tend to be generated in automotive component supply chain. When implementing ISO/TS16949, special attention has to be paid to primary 5 key tools: PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) regulating that products should receive customers' approval prior to volume production or after modification, APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) regulating that quality plan and previous quality analysis should exist before production, FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis) analyzing and coming up with measures to prevent products' potential failure, MSA (Measurement System Analysis) necessarily analyzing variation of measurement result to confirm measurement reliability, SPC (Statistical Process Control) mastering production procedure and product quality change with the application of statistical techniques. Therefore, the first step for PCB manufacturers to enter automotive electronic market lies in getting TATF16949 certificate.
Goood news that FASTPCBA have TS-16949 certificate since 2010. Our previous cerfiticate is out of date and we are on the second audit for re-gain IATF16949 this month. Soon an update IATF16949 can be send to you for your reference if you have interest.
