Quality Assurance on Automotive Projects

Register for training via PDF

Pareto principle – 80% of problems we experience in mass production have their root causes in the project phase. The training module does not deal with detailed explanation of different quality tools but explains their real meaning and exemplify how should they be planned and prepared over an automotive project so that those quality tools do not become only a “paperwork” but the project team gets the real added value from them.
The mindset of the training module is that the objective is not to have customer PPAP approved but to keep the commitment given in PPAP all over the production phase. And the quality tools used in the project phase can contribute to this objective to a large extend.
