Assuring quality in automotive has grown to a huge challenge and competition factor driven mainly by the permanent cost pressure in a mass market that is increasingly confronted with the safety criticality of various mechatronic systems and subsystems. The most successful companies have realized the necessity of integrating the development and manufacturing processes significantly more than this is done today even in the most innovative industrial organizations. This training introduces a novel vehicular qualification concept facilitating this integration process for quality and risk management in automotive industry. In particular, this concept integrates the various dimensions of the quality, safety and reliability of automotive products and systems as well as their associated processes in a way that allows quality, reliability, and safety experts from development and manufacturing to collaborate in an integrated manner.
