feedback graphic-blog

AIAG’s Traceability Workgroup is proud to announce that its new Traceability Guideline, identified as CQI-28, is now available for stakeholder review. Created by a cross-functional and multi-organizational workgroup, the document contains guidance to meeting IATF 16949 traceability requirements, presents a basis for traceability methods and technologies relevant to the automotive industry and concludes with a self-assessment and fire drill forms. Additionally, best practices – and in some cases “bad practices” – are presented to guide and inspire thought for organizations that are creating or evaluating their traceability systems.

The self-assessment and fire drill forms, which will be available electronically at the release of the document, allow organizations to document the status and effectiveness of their traceability system and highlight areas for improvement.

Available as a free purchase in the AIAG store, the CQI-28 document is viewable as an e-document*, and includes a commenting sheet for providing feedback; please send comments to stakeholderreview@aiag.org and include “CQI-28” in the subject line.

The stakeholder review period runs through October 17, 2018, and all comments must be submitted by that time to be considered for inclusion. Please contact Brian Martensen at AIAG (bmartensen@aiag.org) with any questions regarding the Traceability Guideline stakeholder review.
