SAMARA, March 15 (Itar-Tass) — The quality index of car components supplied to the AvtoVAZ assembly lines has risen approximately ten-fold over the past two years, the press center of the enterprise announced on Thursday, summing up the results of work of an AvtoVAZ and Renault joint service, established two years ago for development and component quality.
The techniques of the Renault-Nissan alliance are being used in working with the suppliers, and measures are being taken to reduce costs and introduce quality tools. Over the past two years, the quality system of 76 percent of suppliers to AvtoVAZ has improved, and the manufacturing indicators of 47 percent of suppliers have been raised up to international standards.
On the initiative of the AvtoVAZ-Renault joint service, an Alliance Quality Academy has been established to train suppliers involved in new projects of AvtoVAZ and Renault-Nissan. The training of stock car component suppliers to AvtoVAZ in line with alliance requirements is contemplated for the near future.
"The furthering of the joint work to enhance the quality of car components will promote the implementation of strategic plans of AvtoVAZ and the Renault-Nissan alliance for modernizing the Russian car industry. By 2016, the partners' joint share on the Russian market is to be 40 percent," an AvtoVAZ press center official pointed out.
