IATF 16949 Gap Analysis Tool

The Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) is providing a free Gap Analysis Tool to help organizations transition from ISO/TS 16949:2009 to the new IATF 16949:2016 standard. 

The tool assists you in performing a gap analysis against IATF 16949:2016 to identify differences that need to be addressed to ensure your organization’s quality management system meets all the new requirements. 

The tool also allows you to create a framework for completing an initial evaluation to determine the level of complexity of transitioning your QMS to IATF 16949:2016. 

The tool is intended to be completed in a workshop environment, and the output will help you to develop an implementation plan specific to your organization. Note that the tool can also be used by organizations seeking certification to the automotive standard for the first time.
