Educational sessions at this year’s Quality Summit run along two tracks that highlight the industry's current best practices and showcase emerging engineering and quality processes.

Dr. Mark Rosekind, administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA), will be the keynote speaker for the 2015 AIAG Quality Summit on September 22-23, 2015. Dr. Rosekind is a passionate safety professional dedicated to enhancing transportation safety for the traveling public by pursuing NHTSA’s core safety mission of saving lives, preventing injuries, and reducing crashes through all of the tools at NHTSA’s disposal — including law enforcement, public awareness campaigns, support of technical innovation, and research into human behavior.

“Dr. Rosekind’s keynote at this year’s Quality Summit reaffirms the focus that AIAG and the industry are placing on designing in and building in quality and safety for our new products,” says AIAG Sr. Manager of Quality Programs, Scott Gray. “The Summit gives Dr. Rosekind a unique opportunity to connect directly with the technical professionals responsible for developing, validating, and launching new automotive components, assemblies, systems, and vehicles,” Gray adds.

Following Dr. Rosekind’s keynote address, an ISO/TS 16949 Update session will focus on the current status of ISO/TS 16949 and key points about future revision work. The session features speakers from Ford, FCA US, General Motors, and IAOB.

Themed “Quality and the Consumer Experience,” sessions at the 2015 Quality Summit will address the growing complexity of contemporary vehicle designs and systems. This makes it imperative that quality and product design teams at both OEMs and suppliers work more intimately in the development, validation, and launch of new products that will not only meet/exceed performance and safety expectations, but actually delight an increasingly discriminating consumer.

Educational sessions run along two tracks — Quality and Product Development — that highlight the industry's current best practices and showcase emerging engineering and quality processes, methods, and tools that have the capability to increase the durability, reliability, and safety of new parts, systems, and vehicles.
