The automotive industry is one of the fastest-growing industries. It embodies the development of information and communication technology and technological development. It faces high research and development costs on a daily basis and increasing pressure from the competition.
In this industry, the requirements of a high level of quality and, above all, safety have always been crucial. Slovenia has very successful players in the automotive industry, whose final products contain more and more “made in Slovenia” parts every year.
Many companies enter this industry through a wide supply network. Some do not even produce parts that would be installed in a car, but design or manufacture tools used by other participants in the automotive industry or participate in it primarily through services.
At SIQ, we offer a comprehensive range of training for the automotive industry. We provide the knowledge that employees in the automotive industry need to be able to ensure a high level of quality and safety. Employees must know and understand the requirements of IATF 16949:2016, methods and tools for mastering the quality management system in the automotive industry, such as APQP, PPAP, MSA, FMEA, VDA, and specific customer requirements. Every year, we recognize the need for new skills and offer new courses, such as the IMDS workshop – the international database of materials and the Selection and evaluation of suppliers in the automotive industry.
At an expert meeting in the field of the automotive industry, which took place in February, Dušan Zorc, MSc, a licensed IATF 16949:2016 lecturer and lead management system auditor, summed up his thinking and said that one of the key requirements of the IATF 16949 standard was that management must provide staff who understand their role and have the appropriate competencies. The organization must therefore ensure the competence of the staff on the basis of appropriate education and training. If necessary, action must be taken to obtain the necessary competences.
