About Layered Process Audits
Everyone wants ZERO DEFECTS: Layered Process Audits are the answer.

"Driven by demands for zero-defects and aggressive cost-reductions, the need for control of manufacturing processes has never been greater, especially in the automotive industry. In today’s business environment suppliers cannot rely on inspection of parts and remain cost competitive. Instead, the focus is swinging to the basics of proactive process control, for both automatic and human-dependant tasks."
Murray Sittsamer, The Luminous Group

Layered Process Audits (LPAs), when planned and executed well, provide an effective tool for implementing just such proactive process controls. Layered Audits are sweeping across the automotive supplier base. Pressure is being put on suppliers to implement LPA. For example, Daimler Chrysler has made LPAs a prerequisite for obtaining Process Signoff Approval (PSO) for all its Powertrain and Component Manufacturing Plants. As an added incentive, no tooling payments will be permitted until a successful LPA plan is approved, implemented and demonstrated.

Layered Process Audits are also a General Motors Quality System Basics (QSB) requirement. In addition, to become or remain ISO/TS 16949:2002 certified, suppliers must meet all of the Customer Specific Requirements. It is therefore essential that both Daimler Chrysler and GM suppliers have an active LPA system.

A Layered Process Auditing system must have a documented audit structure that schedules auditors at determined levels and frequency of inspection. Audits primarily focus on processes and error proofing systems by multiple layers of management. The LPA checklists must be living documents and a revision history maintained for each checklist.

LPA Admin provides a cost-effective, versitile solution for implementing LPA systems, exceeding customer requirements, and providing powerful information to your management teams to proactively identify manufacturing system failures before they result in customer rejections, costly scrap and lost production time.
