Automakers and suppliers must appeal to customers who demand high-quality, well-designed products. In turn, heavy demands have been placed on the supply chain. Suppliers must be registered to ISO/TS 16949, QS-9000 or ISO 9000 and adhere to quality tool requirements such as APQP, PPAP, & FMEA.

AutomotiveWhy implement this?

  • Customers require quality tools to be utilized – APQP, PPAP, FMEA, SPC, MSA, 8D.
