ISO 9001:2015 /IATF 16949 2016

Our company is preparing for the latest ISO 9001 and IATF certification. Is it advisable to integrate our procedures into our Quality Manual?

I can't speak to the IATF 16949 2016, but in regards to the ISO 9001:2015 I would say no. Since a Quality Manual isn't even required by ISO 9001:2015, I would move away from one as a document of importance. We keep ours very general and high level, then we link to other procedures as necessary. I also hesitate to include specific procedures into the QM that would require more frequent reviews and updates. If procedures are stand alone they are simpler to update in my opinion.
