AIAG Helps Automotive Manufacturers Diversify into Medical Device Marketplace

New ISO 13485 Medical Device Manufacturing Curriculum, Integrates Proven Automotive Quality Tools and Methodologies

Southfield, Mich. (Vocus) August 12, 2009 -- The Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) announced today the launch of a program to educate medical device manufacturers in quality improvement tools and methodologies.

Earlier this year, the state of Michigan publicized a program to help manufacturers - especially auto suppliers - diversify into new emerging manufacturing market sectors. To aid its members in making this type of transition, AIAG has developed a medical device manufacturing curriculum. This curriculum introduces manufacturers to ISO 13485:2003, the standard requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to provide medical devices and related services. In addition, it introduces the quality core tools: Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), Failure and Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA), Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) and Statistical Process Control (SPC); along with other quality methodologies like problem solving and error proofing, and important supply chain regulatory requirements for manufacturers.

"Auto suppliers are ideally positioned to capitalize on a transition into a high growth manufacturing area such as medical devices because they have manufacturing and quality improvement know-how," said J. Scot Sharland, executive director for AIAG. "Diversifying and taking tested and proven quality tools and methodologies into a vertical industry will help these organization's to strengthen their company balance sheet and keep people working."

AIAG has been providing education and training programs to automotive organizations for more than 20 years. Learn more about the organization at www.aiag.org.
