Layered process audits for Tier 1 suppliers

Reduce defects and quality costs

Automotive OEMs require Tier 1 suppliers to conduct layered process audits (LPAs) to ensure consistent quality and processes adherence. For manufacturers, this daily process verification can dramatically reduce defects and quality costs.

It’s why this highly effective quality tool is growing in popularity, spreading to aerospace, electronics, oil & gas, consumer products, food & beverage and other industries.

Implementations can be difficult

However, implementing layered process audits can be a demanding project, with challenges to consider such as:

  1. Creating questions that auditors from every layer of the organization can easily understand and check
  2. Scheduling a large volume of audits while taking into consideration the frequency of each layer, PTO and
  3. Training auditors, admins and leadership on how to conduct audits—and getting their buy-in to ensure the program’s success
  4. Setting up a system of reporting, follow-up and feedback

Our experts can help you solve your layered process audit challenges with customized training, consulting and our LPA software Beacon Quality.
