Have You Mastered the Core Tool Processes?

The Automotive Quality Core Tools are the building blocks of an effective quality management system. They include Advanced Product Quality Planning & Control Plan (APQP), Product Part Approval Process (PPAP), Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), Measurement System Analysis (MSA), and Statistical Process Control (SPC).

Today, most automotive manufacturers and suppliers require use of one or more of the Core Tools. Therefore, organizations whose employees have mastered the Core Tool processes can assure their customers that the industry’s most qualified individuals are working on their behalf and that IATF 16949 and applicable quality reference manual requirements will be met without fail.

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.
