2016 Quality Summit

Whether the transformation is due to heightened regulatory requirements and increased oversight of field issues, attaining critical mass to make the shift from 2D drawings to 3D models, or a pending revision of the quality management systems standard, there is no doubt that the industry is facing a tidal wave of transformative forces.





The Quality track will focus on the roll-out of the industry’s revised QMS standard including:



  • New requirements in TS16949 and the rationale for the changes

  • Updated certification rules

  • Transition timing




The Product Development track will provide information to support transition to a 3D Model Based Enterprise including:



  • Current state of 3D MBE in the industry

  • The importance of a Technical Data Package (TDP) to making the transition

  • Case studies in downstream consumption of 3D models for inspection and prototyping




And there will be two excellent keynote speakers:



  • Jim VanSlambrouck, Director, Americas Quality, Ford Motor Company

  • Josh Linkner, Chairman, Fuel Leadership LLC
