Over 30 years ago, AIAG collaborated with the domestic auto manufacturers to develop common quality methods and tools, which became known as the Quality Core Tools. The tools proved so useful that they were adopted by other manufacturing sectors, including aerospace, defence, medical, and pharmaceuticals.
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).
LMR Global Limited are now in a position to offer the Core Tool Manuals (Automotive Blue Books) and CQI documents under their partnership agreement with Plexus International as a AIAG Certified Distributor.
