The development and usage of the quality core tools including process flow diagrams, process FMEAs and controls are nothing new to the automotive supply base. Unfortunately, in many cases, these documents are not used to their full potential, reducing the benefit for suppliers and their customers. Recently, OEM customers and 3rd part certification bodies have seen a decline in the quality of process flow diagrams, process FMEAs and control plans, leading to a decline in delivery performance, lower product quality and increased findings during 3rd party audits. As an advanced next step in process improvement, this 2-day workshop was designed to reemphasize the benefits, importance and proper development of these documents for the benefit of supplier organizations and their customers.
This is a Live Virtual course, which requires the participant to use a device capable of streaming content through a video conferencing platform. The participant agrees to keep their camera active at all times during the training.
