The first edition of the Plating System Assessment was released in August 2007 and like CQI-9 Heat Treat, quickly became the global “standard” for assessing an organization’s plating processes. The 2nd edition of the assessment was published in 2012 and provided additional clarification for global users, more user-friendly format based on customer feedback, and new process tables were added to the assessment.
