Quality System Basics Plus (QSB+)

Seminar Content

This three-day seminar covers the recently-revised Quality System Basics Plus (QSB+) supplier shop floor manufacturing systems expectations used by General Motors and PSA Peugeot Citroen. The QSB assessment is now integrated with their New Supplier Assessment (NSA) and Process Control Plan Audit (PCPA). This new process has been renamed QSB Plus, which is a complete shop floor manufacturing system assessment to verify implementation of QSB+ key elements on a supplier’s shop floor. Successful implementation results in QSB+ certification status, which positively impacts the supplier’s Bid List for performance at GM and PSA.

Omnex is a GMPSA-recognized provider of QSB+ training. We have senior automotive quality trainers and consultants, including some from GM, which can help you understand and implement the QSB+ requirements.

When conducted on-site at your location, the trainer can lead the attendees through a hands-on audit on the plant floor.
