Why Join AIAG?
As the globalization of the automotive industry continues to accelerate unabated, successful companies will be the ones who can master the process of innovation and deliver quality products – to the right place, at the right time and in the desired quantities – worldwide. We have witnessed a fundamental shift in the supply chain competitive paradigm: The Big No Longer Eat the Small; The FAST Eat the Slow.
This is where AIAG membership adds tremendous value.
AIAG is a truly unique organization where OEMs, suppliers of all sizes, service providers, government, and academia work collaboratively to streamline the movement of both product and data, vertically and horizontally through the supply chain – creating global standards and harmonized business practices.
As we continue to compress the time and reduce the costs associated with moving product and data, our member companies are better prepared/positioned to promote the form , fit and function of their deigns to an increasingly discriminating and demanding customer base.
Why join and participate? This is a race to the top, not the bottom. Those who get there first and fast extract the most profit. Do it because AIAG projects will have a direct impact on your corporate reputation and the bottom line.
Your Team Just Got Faster!
If the recent economic crisis has taught us anything, it’s that a “go it alone” strategy is not always the best way to tackle problems, uncover opportunities or create value – especially in our extended global supply chains.
There are literally hundreds of noncompetitive areas where OEMs and suppliers – working collaboratively – can drive significant improvements in cost, quality and customer satisfaction. There is one organization that makes it happen: AIAG.
Since 1982, AIAG – a member-driven, not-for-profit association – has been bringing together OEMs and suppliers to identify industry pain points and provide a neutral, legal and professional infrastructure that allows them to work collaboratively to resolve these issues.
For any given company, the savings can amount to millions of hours and dollars. When you aggregate the results across the industry, the impact goes up exponentially.
AIAG is the only automotive association that allows your voice to be heard in the establishment of global standards and guidelines. All members have an equal say in the development of solutions that impact the global supply chain.
There are also non-financial benefits: AIAG volunteers tell us that they find it to be personally and professionally rewarding to explore complex issues and develop solutions that make a real, measurable difference. Over 650 industry volunteers have provided subject matter expertise for AIAG initiatives.
