AIAG CQI Requirements

Content

To achieve excellent product quality, manufacturing processes of products supplied to Bosch have to be robust and stable at any time. For critical process steps like heat treating, plating, coating, welding, soldering, molding, and casting additional care is necessary. Bosch suppliers and sub-suppliers are required to perform annual self-assessments, which are specified in the AIAG booklets CQI-9 (heat treating), CQI-11 (plating), CQI-12 (coating), CQI-15 (welding), CQI-17 (soldering), CQI-23 (molding), and CQI-27 (casting).

 

Why do it? / Purpose

  • Improvement of manufacturing process robustness and stability
  • Reduction of failure rates

When to do it

Start annual assessments immediately, if heat treating, plating, coating, welding, soldering, molding, or casting is part of the value stream.

Key Performance Indicator (KPI)

  • ppm rate
  • number of improvement measures, which were identified through AIAG CQI self-assessments
 
 

 
Input

Heat treating, plating, coating, welding, soldering, molding or casting forms part of the value stream.

Activity

  • Improvement measures identified, defined and implemented
  • Effectiveness verified and proven
  • Annual repetition
Output
  • Implementation completed
  • Confirmed robust process(es)
  • Fulfillment communicated to Bosch
