Automotive Core Tools (APQP, PPAP, SPC, MSA, FMEA, RCA, G8D, 7 QC-Tools etc)

CLM Training has had long experience of using the Automotive Core Tools methodologies in support of process improvement and Quality Management Systems implementations.

APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning).

APQP defines a quality based planning process and seeks to help automotive companies better share information with their suppliers to maintain quality standards into the supply chain.

PPAP (Production Part Approval Process)

The PPAP manual defines the methods for approving components (parts and service) used in production. The aim is to ensure supplier compliance with product and service specifications to maximise “right first time” quality input.

SPC (Statistical Process Control)
The use of statistical tools to test and analyse production line performance primarily to identify output and quality variances.

MSA (Measurement Systems Analysis)

MSA is a methodology to review data sources used in quality analysis and analyse the impact of measurement error on products or production processes.

FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis)

A methodology to identify and examine potential product or process failures. FMEA is a vital tool in determining the effect of risk and developing strategies to cope with failures.

CLM has experience in using these tools to achieve quality improvements for the world’s major automotive manufacturers and suppliers.
