    In many ways, an auditor could ask these things of everyone, from Process Owner down. The list might be different as you get closer to the process (I wouldn't expect the operator to know the ISO/IATF/AS91XX requirements, for example) but in principle, each of the major items can apply at all levels in an organization.

    We frequently see requests for (criteria) audit checklists, which are great, however, the use of such checklists is a bit like using a grocery shopping list, without having a meal plan! You can go and get what's on the list, but end up missing items in the preparation of each meal...with the resulting waste.
