TOP automotive Conference 2018

TOP automotive Conference 2018

Narrative from the 4th edition of TOP automotive Conference

The fourth edition of TOP automotive Conference took place on November 28-30, 2018 in Częstochowa. The event has already earned attention from the automotive industry and is a recognized point of the annual program on the Polish automotive agenda. In 2018, 170 representatives from nearly 60 companies met. The group of people involved in TOP automotive are conference speakers who are representatives of VDA QMC, OEMs, suppliers and partners.

DAY ONE

We started on Wednesday evening. The theme of the evening focused on legal and other requirements, in particular on the safety of the product. First, BOSMAL Institute presented their support possibilities in the field of testing for the unitary and individual admission of vehicles and approvals, preparation of technical opinions, as well as opinions on innovativeness, technical and other analyzes. Next, Team Prevent representative, referring to the previous lecture, pointed out the legal, industry and customer requirements to be met in terms of product safety.

DAY TWO

The second day of the Conference always has the tightest program. During the fourth edition even more than usual, because in addition to VDA QMC panel and OEM panel, workshops were held on Thursday.


QMC panel

VDA QMC, following the principle of continuous improvement, continues to improve both its functioning and cooperation with licensees. The lecture of dr Yuliya Prakopchyk, Director of Training and Development of VDA QMC was based largely on the principles of this cooperation. Dr Yuliya also mentioned the changes occurring in societies in recent years and the associated need to adapt to the expectations of, for example, trainings recipients. She also provided VDA QMC publishing plans for the upcoming months, reawakening the hope that the work on a common FMEA manual will be finalized in the near future. Shortly after publishing manuals in German and English, Team Prevent Poland as an organization authorized to translate them, publishes their Polish editions by Team Prevent Publishing House (www.wydawnictwo-tp.pl).

Thanks to the strategic partnership covered by VDA QMC over TOP automotive Conference, participants learn at first-hand about news and changes in automotive requirements. This time we focused on the FFA process – Analysis of defective parts from the market, which is being updated at VDA QMC and is to be published in the form of a new edition of VDA FFA in the near future.

OEM panel

We are proud that despite all the workload and changes taking place at the high levels of the organization, all three OEM Conference partners have decided to participate in it and enrich the Conference by providing information relevant to suppliers and potential suppliers.

Thanks to the speech of Volkswagen Poznań speaker, non-German speakers have decoded the abbreviation BTV (Bauteilverantwortliche) as a typically Polish term SQA 😉 and have understood the difficulties that people responsible for ensuring the quality of suppliers have in cooperation with suppliers from different cultures and time zones.

Opel pointed out the requirements for suppliers to PSA Group. They also focused on the SOP of gasoline 1.2-liter Turbo engine that will take place in the near future.

FCA wanted to make suppliers aware that delivery to Fiat Chrystler Automobiles does not necessarily mean supplying parts to Fiat brand. They also described a new process audit form based on AIAG's PPAP.

All manufacturers have unveiled the mystery of new models and strategies for the future in which new technologies led – electromobility, autonomous driving, car sharing and the like.

Workshops

In the second half of the day, we invited everyone to a new view of workshops. Thanks to the involvement of VW and FCA, some of them had a corporate touch and were mainly interested for supplying companies to a given OEM. FCA provided details of completing the audit report according to the new FCA PPAP. In the form of a strategic game, VW dealt with the challenges of bidding to the group and discussed the aspects of electrification of vehicles on the example of the brought e-Golf. The interactive workshops conducted by Team Prevent Poland in the themes of IATF 16949 (quiz of standard knowledge), VDA 16 (assessment of decorative surfaces), VDA 6.3, PSB and MSA (case study) were no less interesting.

And it was not the end of a busy day. At the end of the conference part, representatives of BWI Poland Technologies, the Diamond partner of the Conference, systematized information related to the requirements and expectations of the automotive industry in terms of globalization. They pointed out that the standardization of processes is all the more important, the wider they are and the more global they become.

The evening of the second day of the Conference is a traditional banquet lasting until late at night, beefed-up with a spectacular show not on four but on two wheels.

DAY THREE

Suppliers’ panel

The panel of suppliers launched by BWI on Thursday had its continuation the following day. With the lecture of Team Prevent about the new safety management standard ISO 45001 and the benefits of its implementation in the company, we have moved smoothly from management systems, through emission of volatile compounds in vehicles (BOSMAL Institute’s lecture about its health, safety and comfort aspects, as well as automotive requirements regarding acceptable emission levels and research methods), further by the experience of suppliers (Lacroix Electronics and Boryszew Automotive Plastics) in the field of cooperation and communication with suppliers and customers, up to the requirements of the German automotive industry, collected in volumes VDA 16 (decorative surfaces) and VDA 19.2 (technical purity in assembly processes), presented by Team Prevent trainers and consultants.

It was an amazing three days. With a new dose of knowledge, good practices and above all, a memory of interesting conversations.

The date of the next Conference has already been set – 27-29.11.2019. We’re still looking for a place that is convenient for everyone.

Once again, we would like to thank all the partners and patrons of the Conference: the strategic partner – VDA QMC, honorary patrons – the Mayor of Częstochowa, the Polish Investment and Trade Agency, the Diamond partner – BWI Group, Golden partners – DEKRA Certification, Olympus Polska, Lloyd's Register, Boryszew Automotive Plastics, Silver partners – Shapers' Poland, PIK Instruments, BSI Group, 5sAUTOMATE, Brown partners – OpenOne, Wroclaw School of Economics, Knauf Industries, Manpower Group, Content partner – Team Prevent Publishing House.

Space for open communication

TOP automotive Conference organized by your company is prepared in a very professional way.

The last Conference was important, because the participants were representatives of car manufacturers from Poland. A meeting in such a wide circle facilitates the exchange of experience and good practices.

Organizing such meetings results in the creation of a space for open communication in every area, customer-supplier relationship, starting from presenting and understanding customer requirements, ending on "single case studies".

Communication and understanding of the business partner is a key factor for success. The initiative to exchange experiences of suppliers and car manufacturers should be continued.

Direct contact with OEM’s representatives

The value of the Conference is direct contact with representatives of OEM concerns. Presentations and conversations with Customers in their native language allowed in many cases to supplement the interpretation or clarify the details of the requirements for automotive suppliers.

Professionals for Professionals

The TOP automotive Conference is the opportunity to personally meet the Customer with the supplier, learn about the latest trends and requirements, and above all, it is a possibility of a practical look at the business.

Thanks to the formula of the Conference, the participant gets the chance not only to listen, but what is more, to actively participate in it.

A wide range of participants from the industry provides a great opportunity to exchange experiences, which is a decisive factor for which I appear at this annual meeting. The presence of Clients, certification bodies and excellent speakers - is always top shelf, crème de la crème of automotive industry.

I am always impressed by the professionalism, the scale of preparation and the way of hosting the Conference itself. When the event comes to an end I know that the time invested, new ideas and new acquaintances will pay off for the good of me as well as for the organization I work in.

I highly recommend it. See you there!

Opportunity to meet extraordinary people

In my opinion, TOP automotive Conference is a professionally organized automotive event, which is an opportunity to listen to the interpretation of the requirements of automotive standards made by representatives of VDA QMC, as well as the interpretation of Customer Specific Requirements made by representatives of OEM plants in Poland. The Suppliers' Panel organized as part of the Conference allows suppliers and customers to understand each other better throughout the supply chain.

I think that TOP automotive Conference is a chance to meet in one place and time extraordinary people, including OEM customers, automotive industry specialists, as well as trainers, consultants, examiners and the entire Team Prevent team. The Conference allows the exchange of experiences as well as the presentation of new solutions and good practices used in the automotive industry. The formula of the event gives the opportunity to substantive work in the form of lectures, discussion panels and workshops, as well as conversations in the corridors.

In my opinion, TOP automotive is also an opportunity to make new contacts and build good relations in the supply chain. I appreciate and emphasize the very good organization and commitment of the entire Team Prevent team to the preparation and success of TOP automotive Conference. I heartily recommend it.
