Question: After our IATF transition audit we were talking to our auditor and he was trying to help us keep from having to do so much work on KPI's for over 35 different process that we show in our process map. A consultant helped us develop this map and now it seems at is can and will be used against us. I know the new standard uses includes processes around 22 times but he said we don't have to call everything a process, it can be a procedure and therefore it would not be something we have to measure and report to during management review. I then asked our consultant about combining some of the processes and they were upset that I asked. Because it covers all the processes in the standard. From what we have all been through has anyone had an experience with this? As we all know the next audit everything we show we had we will have to show objective evidence of our KPI's or measuring the effectiveness and efficiency for each item WE call a process.
