Toyota Motors Europe NV/SA | Research center | Zaventem, Brussels
Internship (Department: Production engineering: Vehicle Quality engineering)
Core responsibility: Advanced quality planning (APQP) for vehicle interior parts.
• Check the design with respect to critical to quality requirements, critical design requirements, mass pro-
duction problems. Suggest ideas for problem solving for all the defects before design freeze.
Supplier quality: Process audits at supplier, checking fixture design approval, and PFMEA review.
Production preparation at Toyota manufacturing locations:
• Proto car build up for vehicle interior parts and check part fitment, functional and perceived quality.
• Counter measure proposal and trials for problem resolution before next build.
• Manage effective coordination between QA, design and supplier for problem resolution of all defects.
Projects: (Duration: 24 Weeks) Development of new methods for 3D tolerance stack-up in design stage.
Current: In production preparation phase, parts assembly variation = Part + assembly variation + bending
which gives rise to gap and flush issues. Current part design only considers part variation.
New method: To accommodate part and assembly variation in design phase for tolerance stack up.
Output: No gap flush and fitment issues. Hence no engineering change, no tool modification = saved costs.
Tata Motors Ltd | Passenger Car Business Unit | Pune, India
Assistant Manager (Department: Quality assurance: Vehicle assembly shop)
Core responsibilities: Ensure vehicle build quality by end of line static and dynamic testing.
• Check vehicle build quality by static (body matching, shower test, underbody, engine house, vehicle inte-
rior and exterior) & dynamic checks (drive testing) at end of line for all production cars.
• Process audits and issue resolution, 8D, TS16949 documentation, quality standards implementation.
• Quality planning for quality gates, critical to quality checks and line quality checking.
• Reduction on customer complaints for obvious defects.
• Coordination between manufacturing and supplier for defects resolution.
• Root cause analysis of the defects and process quality improvement for re-occurrence prevention.
Production preparation for new launch projects:
• Planning & testing of pre launch cars: for static (complete vehicle) and dynamic testing (drive test)
• Enlist all defects, prepare action plan for defect resolution before vehicle launch.
