Automotive UpdateJanuary 2011
Dear Lisa,

Happy New Year from the ISO Edge!   2010 was quite a tumultuous year in the automotive industry, beginning sluggish and quickly ramping up through the second half of the year.   2010 also yielded one of the biggest years ever for automobile recalls.    Perhaps it's not surprising that all of this upheaval has taken its toll on quality.  Now, more than ever, we have to keep our eye on quality, and preserve everything we've achieved over the past ten years.

 

Our experts have had a busy year, assisting many clients with responding to the rapid increases in volumes and the attendant quality, productivity and delivery challenges that this brings.    In addition to meeting delivery targets, many Tier I suppliers have found themselves on third-party containment.   We have been very busy supporting our clients with containment-exit strategies and employee training. 

 

Sincerely,

Lisa Velanoff

CHRYSLER DEADLINES FOR CQI-14, CQI-15 & CQI-17

CQI-15 

 

Chrysler has made significant changes to its customer specific requirements in June 2010.   Primary among them are the mandatory use of the following three AIAG Guideline Documents.  All three of these were published in March 2010 and compliance is expected by January 3, 2011.    

  

CQI-14 Consumer-Centric Warranty Management (Second Edition).  Chrysler requires that its suppliers use CQI-14 as the means to integrate warranty into their Quality Management System.  The process can be established at either the site level or the corporate level.

 

CQI-15 Special Process:  Welding System Assessment, and CQI-17 Special Process:  Soldering System Assessment.  Chrysler requires that its suppliers use CQI-15 and CQI-17 as the basis for assessing the effectiveness of these two special processes.  Organizations shall conduct audits according to these two documents and take appropriate corrective and improvement actions.

 

Chrysler also requires that Tier I suppliers flow the CQI-15 and CQI-17 requirements down to their Tier II community.  If your organization is Tier II to Chrysler, you need to understand the impacts to your organization.

If your organization has been required to adopt any of the above standards, and you haven't already done so, contact The ISO Edge for our expert approach to performing the audits and correcting the gaps.

 

 

GM & FORD ADOPTION OF CQI-14, CQI-15, CQI-17

 

Ford LogoAccording to the latest Customer Specific Requirements for GM (October 2010) and Ford (August 2009), There are no requirements to implement  CQI-14, CQI-15 nor CQI-17.


Now that the New Year is here, it is the perfect time to review and establish training and development budgets for the coming year.  Please visit our website and then contact The ISO Edge to discuss how we can support your strategic goals and objectives for 2011. 


Sincerely,
