For suppliers of Adient, a global leader in automotive seating, we offer company-specific Advanced 8D Documentation training courses.
JMC Jens Moeller Consulting is Adient’s preferred training partner regarding the Quality Management Methodology.
The Advanced 8D Documentation and Rating Course was created in close cooperation with Adient Supplier Development Team. In this training we will go through Adient’s specific supplier requirements for managing the 8D process and review the new Advanced 8D form and related 8D performance rating system. Beyond the basic training course, we also can offer you focused guidance in completing your 8D documentation and assist with the final evaluation.
