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.

2021 March 4 Future Automotive Expert Webinar3/4/2021

Don’t miss out on our next FAE event this March as we welcome Acme Alliance’s Steve Domalik for his presentation on “Risk & Opportunity Analysis – A Simple Tool.”   The newest versions of ISO and IATF management standards have been aligned to follow similar formats, and one common denominator is risk and opportunity analysis. As such, all quality, environmental, and health & safety management standards now require a process/method for risk and opportunity analysis. During his presentation, Steve will discuss a simple tool that can be customized to meet the unique requirements of your company, and help you successfully answer “How much risk is acceptable?” and “What opportunity do I have to reduce the unacceptable risk?” – two questions that all top managers, value stream facilitators, quality engineers, and team leads are required to address due to the new standards. Steve will also offer several examples of real-life applications, and address any questions attendees have as the presentation draws to a close.   Ready to hear more? Register today!   Once you register for the webinar you will receive 2 confirmation emails. The link to the webinar will be on the event confirmation email.

Stochiometric Analysis for Glass & Ceramics in IMDS3/11/2021

Free Webinar Event!   Register now for our new webinar in Chemical Management, "How to Properly Report Glass and Ceramic Materials in IMDS Using the Stochiometric Analysis Process".   On March 11, 2021 from 3:30-4:30pm EST learn about representing glasses, ceramics, and enamels in IMDS and the complex analysis required to do so properly.   Heidi Wittenborn, Senior Environmental Consultant with RSJ Technical Consulting, brings 10 years of IMDS experience to the table.  She will be discussing the changes in reporting glass, ceramic and enamel materials adopted by the IMDS Steering Committee in 2013 and how to convert your materials to this new way of reporting.   Many of these materials are still reported as a list of oxides.  Since these materials are considered UVCB materials under REACH, IMDS developed a way to track declarable content while still reporting appropriately for UVCB materials.   Here's the definition and an example.    For IMDS purposes a stochiometric analysis is a breakdown of the percentages of individual elements present in the substances that make up a material.  For example, H2O (water), breaks down into two atoms of hydrogen and one of oxygen.  Hydrogen and oxygen have different atomic weights: hydrogen’s is 1.00784 and oxygen’s is 15.999.   Total atomic weight of H2O is (2 x 1.00784) + (1 x 15.99) = 18.0568 Percentage of oxygen in H2O = 15.99 / 18.0568 = 88.55389659297328% Percentage of hydrogen in H2O = (2 x 1.00784) / 18.0568 = 11.16299676576138% We can round these numbers in our final accounting of 100% of the substance.   The presentation starting at 3:30pm EST will be last approximately 45 minutes followed by time for Q&A.   After registering for this event, you will receive 2 confirmation emails (an Order Confirmation and an Event Confirmation). The link for the webinar will be on the Event Confirmation. If you do not receive the 2 confirmation emails, you did not fully complete the order process

2021 March 23 Future Automotive Expert Webinar3/23/2021

Registration is open for the March 23 Future Automotive Expert Webinar - ELECTRIFICATION IMPACT   In January, GM announced its strategy to eliminate gasoline and diesel light-duty vehicles as it plans for an all-electric future.  Other automakers tied to the internal combustion engine (ICE), such as Jaguar Land Rover and Ford, have announced similar plans.  This historic industry shift from the ICE to all-electric propulsion systems will dramatically impact supply chains worldwide.     In his presentation, “Electrification Impact,” Paul Eichenberg – Managing Director of Paul Eichenberg Strategic Consulting – goes into depth about this dramatic industry change.  The presentation will highlight the automaker strategies behind the increasing pace of change, the devastating impact on the automotive supply chain, and the profound challenges facing those who take on this transition.     Link for GoTo Webinar will be on your confirmation email.
