Supplier Quality Manager in Project for Smart Mobility (TM)


As our customers expect the best quality from our products, we expect the same from our suppliers. As SQMP, we ensure that the processes that lead to a quality supplied part(mechanic/electronic) are followed by using different tools, communication skills and a flexible approach. Also, from a technical point of view, it is useful that we can distinguish between a capacitor and a transistor or between a plastic and a stamped part.

  • Evaluate the component risk together with the team by performing the Maturity evaluation;
  • Support in-time sourcing decision and supplier nomination;
