About Ford Q1

Ford worked closely with its suppliers to develop the Ford Q1 program. Q1 suppliers are expected to perform at a certain level, but more importantly, put the tools in place to maintain excellence and to improve their quality with each passing year.

The Q1 site assessment looks at the important areas expected in any robust overall process capability. Ford work directly with suppliers on a regulat basis on all quality related matters.

Shpplier Improvement Metrics are now closely tied to Q1 status. Q1 suppliers are responsible for the total quality of the goods and services they provide to Ford.
