Projects of the Engineering Office supplier management of Ingenieurburo for supplier management specializes in supplier management, quality management and project management in mechanical engineering, plant engineering and automotive industries. The services include supplier management: supplier selection, supplier development, purchasing and lean management. Quality management offers process audits (VDA 6.3), advanced product quality planning (APQP) and sampling (PPAP, PPF). Here are some selected projects are outlined to show the wide range: selected examples of projects start and new supplier for bi-turbo sports car engine quality management task: new suppliers should be qualified for the restart of a redesigned engine. In addition, all engine components were also new and went through more constructive modifications in the testing phase. Procedure: The suppliers were made familiar requirements of the OEM subject process and product releases in advance with the. In the run-up to processes were examined audited, tools and checks the compliance of specifications. Product-specific sampling carried out after approval of the process, which have been matched and graded with the technical requirements.
Result: Through the intensive care of critical suppliers, many problem potentials in the course of a quality planning have been defused ahead. Procurement of plastic technology tools for automotive (clients: VW, Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford) task: an automotive supplier needed tools and additional components for the realization of vehicle new start-ups of well-known automotive manufacturers. It went to components of the areas of air duct, air filtration, oil and valve technology were installed in the engine compartment. A core competence lay in the the engine sound design that is modulated in the resonance bodies like the filter housing. Procedure: For the thermoplastic and elastomer plastic components toolmakers were in the fields of plastic injection molding, blow molding, elastomer evaluated and requested. This was supplemented by additional components such as fabric hoses. The Requests were made in direct coordination with the development and according to their specifications.
Result: For the calculation of new projects a cost and time frame arose each for tools and optional components. This a sharp calculation and tender of the OEM was made possible, which often resulted in the award of contracts. Tools could then quickly be ordered to comply with the tight project timeframe.
