‘CQI Assessments by OEMs—Cost vs. Reward’

Omnex webinar on May 11, 2023

Published: Monday, May 8, 2023 - 12:00

(Omnex: Ann Arbor, MI) -- Omnex has announced its latest webinar, “CQI Assessments by OEMs–Cost vs. Reward.”

Date and time: May 11, 2023, 11:00 a.m. Eastern

Speaker: Craig Thompson

The AIAG Special Process CQI standards have been in place for decades. They have always been regarded as an additional tool to help suppliers improve their processes in line with standardized requirements. When coupled with internal audits, LPAs, and CP audits, these standards can significantly enhance a supplier’s continual improvement program.

Although the importance of the CQI assessment and their requirements has not diminished, the lack of supplier motivation has. In many instances, suppliers are “pencil whipping” the self-assessment associated with most CQI standards. Consequently, some OEMs have resorted to making the assessment external by either performing it themselves or outsourcing it to independent auditors.

This webinar will discuss some of the difficulties, pitfalls, and struggles many OEMs will face if the trend continues. It will also cover the benefits and rewards if the trend continues. Omnex has conducted CQI assessments on behalf of both suppliers and OEMs, as well as internally, providing a unique perspective from both sides of the fence.

As a leading provider of CQI training, and having completed numerous tier one to tier 10 CQI visits, Omnex is excited to share its insights on the cost vs. reward of OEM vs. self-assessments of the CQI standards. The objective is to educate industry stakeholders, suppliers, and those responsible for the supply chain or QMS. Sign up for an enlightening discussion on CQI assessments and their effect on continual quality improvements.
