Supplier Management at MBC - until Start of Production


This training module describes and explains QM methods and tools that are used and required in the product development process of Mercedes-Benz Cars (MBC) up to the production process and product release process with the suppliers. Particularly in the new product project phase, there is intensive cooperation between MBC and the suppliers, which is supported by the methods and tools presented. When releasing the production processes and products at the interface from the project to the series, extensive QM methods and tools are in use to ensure the quality capability of future products. This period is extremely important for determining a final release of quality capability and series maturity before serial production begins. Weaknesses in the application and implementation of the methods at this stage have serious consequences for all involved. In order to avoid time and costs for time-consuming discussions or maturity-securing additional measures, the interaction of MBC and suppliers, with the appropriate use of methods, is necessary.
