Dubai, United Arab Emirates — Indonesia’s capital Jakarta recently hosted the 47th International Convention on Quality Control Circles (ICQCC).
Gold Award went to Lingpao QC Team and QCC Group of Intelligenced Connectivity, while Prime Gold Award went to Crucial Pioneer QC Team. Having been selected for the sixth time to the global quality management honor list, the company achieved a milestone breakthrough.
“Build Back Better through Quality Efforts” was the theme of this Convention, which brought together about 800 QC teams from 13 countries and regions to publish and exchange development results online and offline. Chery Group participated in the competition with 3 teams.
Quality Olympics have been held 47 times since 1976, when the first ICQCC was held.
In response to COVID-19 pandemic prevention and control, all participating states joined the “Cloud Meeting.” More than 189 Chinese teams attended, including quality control teams from CASC, State Grid, Chery Automobile, Xiaomi Corporation, Gree, and others.
Numerous awards have been won by Lingpao’s Quality Management Center and Product Development Management Center for addressing vehicle quality problems. It was only through quality and technical innovation that the team members were able to solve these problems after comparing solutions many times.
Chery Automobile’s QCC Group embodies advanced technology. Research and application of networking products by this group have won two national awards and two provincial awards, thereby improving the quality of electrical appliances in vehicles. The goal of the Group of Intelligenced Connectivity this time is to enhance the tire pressure activation success rate throughout the vehicle. As a result of field investigation and research, tire pressure activation on the final assembly line 32 has been significantly increased, which has improved quality control. Lastly, two schemes were developed and promoted – Vehicle Tire Pressure Activation and Electrical Inspection Integration.
Crucial Pioneer QC Team won the first prize of the National Machinery Industry Excellent Quality Management Group in 2021 for quality breakthroughs in new vehicle product development. During this Convention, this team reduced the unqualified rate of the whole vehicle exposed to rain from 42% to 0.4% by improving tooling structure, process parameters, and architecture optimization. They systematically summarized the problems encountered when new models were exposed to rain during development, accumulating valuable experience for further development. A tooling patent was also applied for, and a paper was published.
With the purpose of linking the brand image with quality assurance, Chery Automobile has undertaken mass quality management activities for many years. It encouraged all employees to attach importance to quality and its improvement and sums up these learnings through practice. By continually improving and boosting high-quality development, the company’s staff adhere to the vision of “Ingenious Quality and Excellent Creation.”
For Chery Automobile, winning the ICQCC championship for the 6th consecutive year is not only a source of encouragement, but also an indication that Chery is a highly regarded independent brand on the international market.
