Quality


AIAG's Quality initiatives span the wide array of product development, manufacturing, service, and customer experience improvement activities to support the manufacturing technology and product innovation advancements that are required from successful and growing suppliers and OEM's. While grounded in the quality standards and core tools that are the foundation of automotive quality excellence, the current AIAG quality initiatives are exploring new issues, providing insights, and the latest tools and methodologies to support the manufacturing technology and product innovation advancements that are required from successful and growing suppliers and OEM's.

Supply Chain Management


Recent events have clearly demonstrated the challenges in managing the scope, scale and complexity of today's automotive supply chain. AIAGs materials management, ecommerce and logistics initiatives are far-reaching and can have a significant impact on supply chain efficiency - whether the goal is to improve the flow of information, reduce in-transit damage, speed up the flow of parts through international borders, or provide greater visibility anywhere in the system. AIAG Supply Chain Management initiatives provide guidelines, training and educational opportunities to understand and manage the complexity and scope of supply chain issues.

Corporate Responsibility


By being both proactive and collaborative, AIAG brings our members together to develop innovative solutions to these and other common CR challenges, both national and international. AIAG understands the range of CR issues and laws affecting the automotive and related industries, and we stay on top of changing conditions and expectations. Using this intelligence and our unique position at the nexus of multiple industries and companies, we develop the active insights, trainings and tools our members need to operate responsibly—and profitably. Our corporate responsibility work is guided by a CR Steering Committee, which is facilitated by AIAG and comprised of senior staff volunteers from our member companies, including FCA, Delphi, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Toyota, ZF TRW and many others. The Committee, along with its Advisory and Working Groups of members and subject matter experts address industry issues in three core issue areas: Social, Economic and Environmental Sustainability.

2019 Responsible Materials Industry Briefing6/11/2019

Register NOW for the “Responsible Materials Industry Briefing: Expanding Beyond Boundaries of 3TG, Dodd-Frank and DRC"   Recent European and Chinese regulatory influence on the automotive industry's reporting of tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold (“3TG”), and other minerals, such as cobalt and mica, lithium, etc. may necessitate additional support in the future to assess all global regions of conflict.   To proactively address these issues within the supply chain, the AIAG Responsible Materials Work Group (formerly known as the Conflict Minerals Work Group) has recently expanded its scope to focus on the responsible sourcing of materials beyond conflict minerals.  While not legislated, responsible sourcing of raw materials has gained the attention of media, external stakeholders, and automotive companies themselves.   For this year's industry briefing we will address topics including: - Reporting Template Updates for Conflict Minerals and Cobalt - Legislative Updates for EU and others - Department of State Update - Trade Sanctions - Smelter Updates - Best Practices, and more!   View Agenda
