Up to 90% of all FMEA and Control Plan spreadsheets have errors in them. These mistakes not only cost time and money but can damage the reputation of companies using them with their customers.

That’s why AIAG, in partnership with Ford, GM, Honda, Nissan, Stellantis, Toyota and the rest of the AIAG Board of Directors developed the Core Tools Support™ (CTS) software – a cloud-based solution for authoring and managing FMEA, Control Plan and PPAP documents.

How does the CTS™ software address Quality issues?

  • Provides real-time updates between FMEAs by linking Foundation/Family/Part specific FMEAs
  • Automatic linkage between your Process Flow, PFMEA and Control Plan
  • Includes your process improvement updates in future designs and processes
  • Improves flow of content into FMEAs after launch
  • Web-based - Promotes document revision control and eliminates local copies of documents on personal computers to ensure all users are accessing the latest version
  • Improves migration of learning
  • Promotes the AIAG & VDA FMEA seven step process
