|Who is who
Quality management is a system of organizing products, services and processes in such a way that all requirements of a company and its customers are completely met.
Quality management is systematically supported by methods and standards to make quality management systems common and comparable. They provide basic rules for product development, production, service and final inspection, in order to ensure achieving certification and passing audits.
Knowledge and experience with international, national and automotive-specific quality standards belong to the fundamental tool set that proves a company's business practices are focused upon quality.
