In advanced product quality planning, the decisive course is set for efficient and cost-effective production. In addition to risk analyses of the production processes, good advance quality planning also includes the goal of reducing the testing effort to the necessary minimum during series production. The automotive industry strives for nothing less than a zero-defect target within the IATF 16949 standard. In other industries, however, QVP also serves the best possible safeguarding and optimization of production.

The engineering experts at M.TEC offer this profile as well as several decades of experience in developing automotive components and parts in areas such as e-mobility HV components, interior, exterior, and engine compartments. Additionally, M.TEC applies an ISO 9001-certified engineering process, and a test result is available on the TISAX portal.

Quality Pre-planning: Systematic Process and Cost Analysis with M.TEC

The engineers at M.TEC collaborate with their automotive clients to develop processes and necessary documentation in accordance with the IATF 16949 standard and additional customer-specific requirements.

M.TEC's Services in Quality Pre-planning

To secure the start of production (SOP), M.TEC supports your projects from development to the ramp-up of production in these areas of quality pre-planning:

  • Project management
  • Definition of special characteristics
  • Creation of OEM-specific processes and documents
  • Risk analyses, FMEAs
  • Definition of process flow diagrams
  • Supply chain with supplier qualifications or supplier audits
  • Creation of production control plans according to IATF 16949
  • Analysis of statistical process capability (cpk value; this calculates the mean and range of variation and thus determines the scrap rate of the parts to be produced)
  • Initial Sample Test Report 
  • Production Part Approval Process (PPAP)
  • Change management
  • Cost reduction processes
  • Continuous improvement process
  • Process flow diagrams for reduced risks and production costs

Defining the production process using the process flow diagram is a crucial pillar in quality pre-planning. From decisions like "Make or Buy" to determining internal material flow, hidden cost drivers can be identified and eliminated.

Initial Sampling

Initial sampling plays a special role in quality pre-planning. M.TEC also supports this with over 30 years of experience in areas including:

  • Material sampling
  • Measurement reports
  • Life cycle testing
  • Preparation of the Initial Sample Inspection Report
