Quality Management System for the Automotive Industry

Quality management and regulatory standards have become a significant consideration in the automotive industry. Clients expect their suppliers to deliver value consistently, and to prove that their requirements are being met.

The number of documents, processes and staff members in the auto industry makes quality management a time-intensive activity. Car assemblers and parts manufacturers need to hire ever-growing teams to comply with security checks, audits, and document distribution.

An industry-specific QMS for auto manufacturers considers the need for automation, custom workflows, and low-cost implementations.

Thought for the Multinational Nature of the Auto Industry Supply Chain

As the automotive value chain becomes more reliant on international suppliers, a greater number of operations are distributed between multiple plants, offices and countries. Cordage enables large and growing Tier I, Tier II and Tier III companies to manage their quality operations across multiple offices, factories and locations, as a single user.

Multiple Locations

Cordage creates an HQ organization by default. Organizational documents can be created, managed and shared in the HQ and distributed across multiple locations.

Multilanguage

Manufacturers with operations in multiple countries and with international staff can access reports, activities, and information in a preferred language at the organization, location and personal level.

Comply with the Stringent Requirements of IATF and ISO, While Remaining Flexible

Achieving consistency and acquiring a quality certification provides access to newer markets. A well-defined management system is the first step towards exporting to new countries and selling to larger clients in the automotive industry.

Getting a certification guarantees your clients that the product and service you deliver is done according to specifications and follows Standard Operating Procedures. A certification like ISO 9001:2015 or ISO/TS 16949 is reassuring to your customers.

Advanced Customization

Adapt your Software to Your Processes, Language and Reporting Needs.
