Integrated Quality Management System

Integrated Quality Management System


Most automotive supply chain units need to comply with the requirements of IATF 16949 along with various customer-specific requirements viz. MSIL, HMSI, Tata Motors, VDA 6.3, and so on. Organizations maintain a different set of procedures, work instructions, and formats to satisfy different customers. This makes system deployment a cumbersome & time-consuming task.
