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

  • Provide high-quality products meeting or exceeding customer expectations
  • Produce sustainable volume
  • Deliver on time
  • Ensure costs are under control and be profitable
  • 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 organizing this program covering the 5 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.

  • Gain a basic understanding of the Core Tools used in New Product Development as well as for ongoing process control for existing products.
  • Conduct basic SPC & MSA studies and interpret results.
  • Focus on New Product Development Assurance through APQP and PPAP
  • Understand the importance and necessity of APQP & PPAP to meet customer requirements
  • Focus on the use of Process Management to achieve standardization and improvement using Process Flow
  • Take part in FMEA reviews in your organization and contribute in CFT meetings
  • Add value in Production/Manufacturing Services through effective implementation of the core tools
  • Participate in FMEA discussions

Learning-by-doing approach: The entire program is divided into 5 sessions (Total of 34 hours) on Core tools. Sessions are staggered over weeks to give inputs in stages along with assignments


  • Session 1: Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP)  :3 hours each on 15, 16 September 2022, Total of 6 hours
  • Session 2: Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) 3 hours each on 20, 21, 22 September 2022, Total of 9 hours
  • Session 3: Measurement System Analysis (MSA), 3 hours each on 27, 28, 29, September 2022, Total of 9 hours
  • Session 4: Statistical Process Control (SPC), 3 hours each on 11, 12 October 2022, Total of 6 hours
  • Session 5: Production Part Approval Process (PPAP)  13 October 2022, 4 hours
  • Quiz question sets in every session to ensure participants have understood the topics.
  • Assignments after each session ( 4 sets of assignments ) to ensure participants not only learn the theory, examples, case studies during training but also become competent to practice by themselves.
  • Participants to complete the assignments and submit before the next session
  • Review of assignments for corrections/improvement
  • Final test and Assessment
  • Certification issued after completion of assignments and final test
