Default Re: Targeting quality improvements, Tata Motors plans to downsize vendor base

Rather than checking Toyota or any company as to how the same/similar part is manufactured, Tata should have stricter Vendor Audits and raise the QC bar to ensure the pats are of good quality.

Do regular and surprise audit and take necessary action on vendors who deviate on manufacturing process.

Tata I think, is very well equipped to do this.

Stricter vigilance is what is the need of the hour to get the parts quality issue solved to a certain extent.
