Core Tools Self-Assessment

AIAG has developed a free online survey to test basic competency in the automotive quality Core Tools, e.g. APQP/PPAP, FMEA, MSA and SPC, which you can use to baseline your organization's and/or your suppliers' competency. The questions reflect information that everyone in automotive quality today should know and was developed with the required knowledge for third-party IATF 16949 auditors as an input. Results can be used 1) to verify the effectiveness of your quality Core Tools training, 2) for supplier development, e.g. Tier 2, and 3) to develop individual or group improvement plans. This is not a certification program.
