Quality Demands

Certification – IATF 16949, VDA 6.1 or equal 

Automotive suppliers shall be certified according to IATF 16949. IATF 16949 puts higher demands on processes where the use of statistical methods, risk analyses and measurement system are to be defined and approved by both parts. The goal of this quality system is to develop basic quality systems that promote continuous improvement, place the spotlight on preventing faults and reduce variations and waste in the delivery chain. The certification for IATF 16949 shall be performed by an accredited third party.  

PPAP Submission

Before a supplier is finally approved to deliver serial parts to Scania, a PPAP or an equivalent system according to IATF 16949 must be undertaken. Scania is using PPAP for approval of new and modified products and production processes. The basic prerequisites for a PPAP are that the samples submitted for approval of production parts must be taken from a significant production batch.

​Additions to IATF 16949

  • Contingency plan – Plan to handle unexpected situation
  • Change control – No changes in products or production process without approval from Scania according to supplier change request routine (SCR). 
  • Control plan – Continuously updated
  • Product audits – Deviations and corrective actions reported on request 
  • Layout inspection and functional testing – Reported on request, deviations and corrective actions minimum once per year. 
  • Capability/process control (Cpk >1.33)
