Quality Steering Committee

The AIAG Quality initiatives are guided by the Quality Steering Committee. This group is comprised of quality leaders at AIAG member companies, and includes representatives from car and truck OEMs and suppliers of all tiers. The Quality Steering Committee charter is to proactively identify industry issues, needs and trends and provide guidance and best practices to continually improve products and processes.

This is accomplished by developing and publishing white papers and guidelines, conducting training and certification workshops, and hosting focused symposiums and annual conferences to increase awareness and implement industry best practices.
