QAD and Quistem have teamed up to develop specific guidelines to help automotive manufacturers prepare for the restart of their operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. These guidelines feature 13 key topics that automotive suppliers will need to address in order to align their operational restart with their customers in the automotive supply chain.

Supplier Readiness

With our focus on automotive manufacturing customers, we teamed up with Cathy Fisher, president of Quistem, a global expert in automotive management systems, to put together specific guidelines to help automotive suppliers get their facilities up and running during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said QAD Director, Automotive Terry Onica. “We recognize organizations are currently receiving a lot of guidance about protecting their employees from the COVID-19 virus. However, for quality product and delivery to their customers, additional detailed focus on 13 key aspects of their business will contribute to a successful restart.”

Supplier Readiness

The Operational Restart Readiness Checklist covers the following topics and provides detailed checkpoints related to each:

  1. Contingency Plans 

  2. Inventory

  3. Immediate customer delivery requirements

  4. Immediate delivery plan including transportation

  5. Supplier inventory and near-term delivery plan

  6. Availability of outsourced processes

  7. Temporary process changes due to virus risk reduction actions

  8. Product/process requalification plan

  9. Accuracy of work instructions

  10. Workforce availability and training

In addition to offering the Operational Restart Readiness checklist, QAD and Quistem recorded a webinar in conjunction with the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) outlining a three-step plan for automotive suppliers to follow when preparing to restart their operations. This plan includes: 1) managing the COVID-19 virus at the facility; 2) restarting manufacturing operations; and 3) recovering operational stability. The webinar can be viewed here.
