The objective of the standard is the sustainable improvement of start-up, delivery and field quality of all supplier parts, components and systems through process-accompanying assurance of product maturity at the start of production. By applying a standardised method,
projects are segmented, assessed early on and corrected.
This system for maturity level assurance describes a standard concept for cooperation and communication in complex product development projects with many parties involved in the supply chain. Therefore, it provides a standard set of measured values and criteria with the corresponding methodology. Since planned comprehensive use of the standard in the automotive and supplier industries requires knowledge and competence in different functions of the organisation, a correspondingly broad scope and two-day course was designed.
The course imparts knowledge about maturity level methods (assessment, content, control and report systematics) that are necessary in maturity level regulatory processes in the product development process.
Furthermore, the measurement criteria are worked out in detail in workshop mode. Finally, the content is applied in practice during a group exercise at an “interdisciplinary round table”.
