“The expectations of end customers can no longer be expressed in specifications alone. Vehicle manufacturers and the supplier industry are required to identify these product characteristics independently and to implement them in the products. This approach must also be taken into account when conducting product audits.
Product audits should indicate the quality level of internally/externally manufactured products in the process chain.”
