In the highly competitive environments of Automotive / Manufacturing, most organizations are challenged with several simultaneous and equally complex goals:

  1. Provide high quality products meeting or exceeding customer expectations
  2. Produce sustainable volume
  3. Deliver on time
  4. Ensure costs are under control and be profitable
  5. To ensure all legal requirements are met.

Such goals demand that you raise your competence and knowledge in Quality Management techniques and establish your credibility to manage challenges with predictable assurance.

The Quality Core Tools are the building blocks of an effective quality management system. It is important to get an understanding of how the Core tools of quality work, learn the common language that connects all the tools and learn effective use of all the Core Tools of quality. 

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.

Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organising this program covering the 5 Core tools of quality.

Focus Areas

This program covers the important aspects of following Core tools of quality :

  • Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) to define a process that creates a roadmap for developing new products complete with time-based milestones and decision points along the way.
  • Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), a core tool that uncovers potential failure modes, assesses the risk those failure modes and establishes action priorities to mitigate the highest priority risks.
  • Measurement System Analysis (MSA), a critical core tool, assures that the measurements you are taking are accurate.
  • Statistical Process Control (SPC) gives operators a tool to monitor stable processes and to identify when the process is going out of control due to special causes so that problems can be addressed before product quality is affected.
  • Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) provides a formal, standardized framework for customer-supplier communications regarding the specification and quality requirements for products, parts and materials.
