Core Tools

Description

Today, most automotive manufacturers and suppliers require their suppliers to use at least one Core Tool. Companies that use Core Tools in their management system can assure their customers top quality practices.

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).

This course is a review of the Core Tools needed for your IATF 16949 / ISO 9001:2015 Certification.
