    hi all,
    i am newbie in automotive industry.
    may i know, under this clause iatf 8.5.6.1, is it only applicable for changes to part design, manufacturing location and manufacturing process?
    how about if there is change to machine parameter or added new control item such as parameter spec?
    are these fall under this clause?

    I think the answer is yes. In the paragraph that starts with the word "Changes" it says: (such as changes to part design, manufacturing location, or manufacturing process).

    A new control item is definitely a manufacturing process change. Machine parameters are usually manufacturing process changes also.

    These both also require a new PPAP.

    Change in machine parameters, Its doesn't matter whether it affect product quality. we may have to update the control plan and communicate to customer. However if we got the waiver from our customer not to notify them when there is no change in product quality. Then we can ignore.

    Better to clarify while conducting contract review with customer or through CSR review.
