AIAG’s new Core Tools Support™ (CTS) software – a cloud-based solution for authoring and managing FMEA, Control Plan and PPAP documents – takes the best of the old Core Tools forms disk and improves it in every way.

Fueled by industry input, the software’s development began with insights from AIAG’s Quality 2020 Report and Voice of the Customer survey and evolved based on feedback from hundreds of customers and volunteers. The resulting software, based on the Microsoft Azure platform with over $1 billion invested in security, includes the following features and benefits:

  • Linkages between forms.
  • Complete flexibility in creating task templates.
  • Reporting across parts and projects.
  • A responsive main menu showing your tasks, priorities, meetings, calendar and more.
  • The ability to search for quick and relevant results.
  • Instant updates with the most current forms (including the new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook forms, when available). 
  • The option to upload supporting PPAP documentation (such as gage R&R studies) into part files as PDF files.
  • PPAP documentation tracking and project planning tools, including meeting and assignment trackers.
  • Much more!

Designed to support smaller suppliers’ unique needs, this PC and tablet compatible software will particularly benefit those who don’t need or have budget for the larger PLM or QMS applications. Additionally, user licenses are based on concurrent users instead of traditional seats – so team members across the globe can share licenses, and you can save money.

Price chart reflects the cost for one year of access to the CTS software (from date of purchase) for a single user license. Additional user licenses purchased will reflect the same cost structure – $360 annually, per license. User licenses are based on concurrent users.

Each user license includes 50GB of storage space as part of the annual subscription. Additional account storage space is available for purchase (for an annual fee) in 50GB increments.

CTS software and recommended e-documents must be purchased separately from other items in cart. Please return to the AIAG Store to complete any additional purchases.

The software is currently only available in English. Additional languages will be added in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

You will receive two separate confirmation emails shortly after completing your purchase – one from AIAG, and one from the software itself – detailing next steps.

Instead of traditional seats, the CTS software is based on concurrent users. This refers to the number of users able to use the software simultaneously.

The person in your company who purchases the first concurrent user license will automatically be the “License Holder” for all sales and billing purposes. Once that individual logs into the software, he or she will be able to add new users, admins, and locations.
