Automotive Quality Management System

Principles

State-of-the-art quality management system is a key business success factor at the Automotive Industry

Statement of the automotive OEM customers:

"We cannot be better than our worst supplier"

Therefore – the OEM customers invest huge efforts and resources to develop top-level supplier's base

Implementation of effective QMS by the supplier ensures quality, consistency, and reliable processes in the product life cycle (starting with requirements phase, development, verification and validation, and serial supply)

Top quality and full compliance with requirements (customer and other specifications, legal and product safety requirements) – is a must to reduce risks and support business success
