    Hello all,

    What is the definition of IATF 16949:2016 8.4.2.3.1 “Automotive Product-Related Software” (not “Embedded Software”)?

    We have in-house custom engineering programs and purchased software packages that check product at various stages in the assembly process for correct parts, correct software revision level, correct label formats, etc. Similar software also captures production traceability information at various stages in the process and handles calibration checks as well.

    Do the requirements for 8.4.2.3.1 apply to all, or some, of the software examples listed above whether developed by us (i.e., we are the supplier) or purchased from an outside source?

    Do the requirements of Product Identification and Traceability 8.5.2.1 apply to all, or some, of the software examples listed above?

    Thank you for any clarification that can be provided.

    Embedded software is something within the deliverable product. Are you familiar with the VW emissions scandal?
