Automotive Service and Zero Defects

The acceleration of electronic systems and consumption of semiconductor content by the Automotive industry in the past few years has been revolutionary. This is largely driven by a need for new technologies that promise to enhance the driving experience such as navigation, remote roadside assistance, and autonomous driving systems that combine data from multiple sensors with high-performance processors that make control decisions.

GLOBALFOUNDRIES, the fastest growing automotive foundry in the world, has implemented its AutoProTM Service Package, built upon three foundational pillars:

  • Quality Systems Readiness
  • Technology Platform Readiness and
  • Operational Readiness

The Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) has been developing a comprehensive approach to dramatically improving automotive supply chain quality through a document entitled Q004 Zero Defects Guideline.  This wide-ranging document provides dozens of tools and techniques that help companies institute a zero defects culture in support of improved quality and profitability, regardless of its customer base.

What If Change Was Easy? Free Webinar 11/12/18 11AM CST

What If Change Was Easy?

Change is inevitable. We may respond with excitement, indifference, or fear. Effective leaders recognize and respond to the potential effects of organizational change. They view improvements through the lens of the system, processes, and people. Sustainable improvements rarely take hold without everyone understanding and embracing change. This session explores change, not as an obstacle to success, but as an opportunity to improve one step at a time, consistently, over time.

Running Reliably: The World Through the Lens of a Globetrotting Reliability Engineer

Cheryl Tukoff ASQ CMQ/QE, ASQ CRE
Director of Corporate Quality and Continuous improvement National Instruments

Traveling and working outside the US provides incredible opportunities to observe how other countries and cultures achieve reliability. Because reliability requires both people and objects to function well for a certain time under specific conditions, it means quite different things in different places!  Politics, geography, culture, climate, and society norms all influence how reliability is defined, perceived and achieved. In a presentation that is equal parts travelogue and technology review, learn more about the fascinating ways reliability is achieved around the world and how you can apply some of these lessons in your own organization. Case studies include examples of reliability management in the US, Mexico, Ethiopia, South Africa, New Zealand and India with technologies ranging from automobiles, to appliances to tracking devices.

Our Speaker

Cheryl Tulkoff has over 20 years of experience in electronics manufacturing focusing on reliability and failure analysis. She is passionate about applying her unique background to accelerate product design and development while saving time, optimizing resources, and improving customer satisfaction.

Throughout her career, Cheryl has had extensive experience training others.  She is a published author and a senior member of both ASQ and IEEE. She is an ASQ Certified Reliability Engineer and Certified Manager of Quality and Organizational Excellence.

Cheryl earned a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree from Georgia Tech and a Master of Science in Technology Commercialization (MSTC) program at the University of Texas at Austin.

In her free time, Cheryl loves to run! She’s had the good fortune to run everything from 5k’s to 100 milers including the Boston Marathon, the Tahoe Triple (three marathons in 3 days) and the nonstop Rocky Raccoon 100 miler. She also enjoys travel and has visited 46 US states and over 20 countries around the world. Cheryl combines these two passions in what she calls “running tourism” which lets her quickly get her bearings and see the sights in new places.
