Abstract

Although the automobile is a commonly used product, it is an extremely complex and technologically sophisticated one. Technology has increasingly altered the manufacturing process for motor vehicles. While cars produced at faster rates, automakers must continue to balance increased productivity and efficiency with quality and innovation. To improve product quality and efficiency in production, automakers rely heavily on research and technological innovation. Due to global competition, companies have indeed emphasized that quality should have to be put in place, integrated into all aspects of products and services within their management system. Therefore, quality management is essential role in all the manufacturing production. This paper discusses the basic concept of the quality management information, the stamping process in automotive manufacturing and quality information flow of the stamping process in automobile production. The processes flows of the diagrams are also provided.
