Quality, vital in the automotive industry

Mar 26, 2019 | News

IATF 16949 is the quality management systems (QMS) standard specific to the automotive industry, based on the international QMS standard, ISO 9001.

The objective of IATF 16949 is the development of a QMS that provides continuous improvement, emphasizing the prevention of errors and the reduction of variation and waste in the automotive supply chain.

IaTF members include major vehicle manufacturers (Volkswagen, PSA, DaimlerChrysler, Ford Motors, GM, FIAT).

The IATF 16949 standard has become an essential requirement for any organization working in the global automotive manufacturing supply chain. Many, if not all, of the world’s leading automakers make it a prerequisite for their suppliers. That is, it is vital for any company within the automotive industry to be certified with such a standard.

The IATF monitors all its suppliers to meet a number of requirements: it keeps track of compliance with the common rules of the standard, conducts audits, applies new policies, and makes recommendations for improvement for companies, among many other things.

This standard provides organizations with a series of conditions that distinguish them from non-certified companies:

  • Internationally agreed and recognized practices for quality management in the automotive sector.
  • Common language for dealing with business customers and suppliers worldwide.
  • Increased effectiveness and efficiency.
  • Model of continuous improvement and quality.
  • Model for delivering excellence to customers and other stakeholders.

At ILPEA Galvarplast Automotive, we have been certifying our production plants with the IATF 16949 standard for years, in order to have the most important OEMs worldwide as customers.

That is why the quality department is vital throughout the automotive supply chain, as it is responsible for ensuring that all products meet the specifications and standards required by customers.

Likewise, the fulfillment of the different technical requirements of all our products has a vital importance in our company. We always work following the objective of being able to satisfy the demanding demands of our customers and we have done so to date. An example of this are the years we have been as automotive suppliers and the successes we have achieved, multiplying our sales and the number of customers year after year.
