Quality management systems (QMS) are used in order to ensure that the quality and safety of products is maintained. In the automotive sector, these systems are governed by the quality standard ISO 9001 and the system standard ISO/TS 16949. Maintaining these strict standards without the assistance of CAQ software and well-trained employees is virtually impossible nowadays. This aspect becomes even more evident when one takes a closer look at the latest revision of the ISO/TS 16949.

Fully understanding the theoretical approaches in standards such as ISO 9001:2015 is often quite challenging - particularly when one does not have existing knowledge in the area of quality management. The contents may appear rather abstract and it is difficult to apply them to one’s own workplace setting. But how do you spice up these topics and make them more accessible?

Gauges are essentially the sole interface between the measured object and the measured value and it is safe to say that this value lies at the beginning of all quality management efforts. If, for whatever reason, the value is not measured correctly, all subsequent QM processes such as incoming/outgoing goods inspections, SPC, or quality planning will be in vain.

A plant manager walks through the production facility. He sees an employee performing a maintenance task on a machine. Has this employee been trained for this task? A forklift drives past. Does the driver have the right qualifications and are these still valid? A gauge is calibrated, an incoming goods inspection is performed, or an initial sample test report is formulated. Are all the necessary qualifications for these tasks available and up to date?
26/07/2016 - Events
Expertly trained employees, whose level of knowledge is always kept up-to-date are generally more motivated, creative, and very often contribute fresh ideas and problem-solving techniques. The consistent planning, administration, documentation, and evaluation of all training and qualification matters is also an important safety matter and an integral aspect that needs to be considered when complying with official life science guidelines and standards such as the ISO 13485 or the FDA’s 21 CFR 820.25.

A car is made up of approximately 10,000 individual parts and round about 40 different materials. In order to ensure that both quality and safety are maintained throughout every assembly and all parts work together faultlessly, sophisticated quality management is an absolute necessity. It therefore comes as no surprise that probably no other industry has done so much for the evolution of quality assurance and the standardization of processes in the past century, as the automotive industry has.
