Activities Timing
Improvement program received 12/30/1899
I. Concretion and timing of the improvement program (14 days )
II. Realization of improvement program ( 12 weeks after award ) offen
III. Selfassessment according to VDA 6.3 ( only by "GREEN" and "YELLOW" if award is made ) 12 CW before SOP

Explanation

The activities must be realized immedeatelly. For large imprvement programs the realization can be subdivided in several
realization phases.

Selfassessment: to assess seriously the selfassessment, we ask for information about the audit timing (man days) and the
qualitfication of the auditors used. In our opinion the audit timing equates a timing of a certification audit. After receiving and
verifying the audit documents we will, if the result is classified as "A", agree our next audit timing. If trhe result is classified as
"B" we ask for realistic timing you will achieve an "A" classification. We expect then the ontime sending of the audit report of
the internals follow up audit, without any specific request from us.

Agreement of upgrade qualification:


Controlled suppliers / tenders commit themselves, after been awarded, to coorperate with an approved consulting company
by accpeting the upgrade qualification agreement. Costs will be carried by the supplier.
