From November 24 to 26, the 46th ICQCC (International Conference on QC Circles) was held in Hyderabad, India. Chery QC team participated in this conference as one of the Chinese representatives and was selected from 904 QC teams to win the highest award of the conference - the Gold Medal. This is the fifth consecutive time that Chery has won this international award with the reputation of "Quality Olympics".
The ICQCC originated in the mid-1970s, and was jointly initiated by 13 national and regional industry standardization associations, such as China Association for Quality, Singapore Productivity Association, Japan Alliance for Science and Technology, and Korea Standardization Association. As a grand event for international exchanges and competitions of quality management team activities, ICQCC is known as the "Quality Olympics" for its large scale and wide range in the field of quality management. The conference, themed "Quality Philosophy for Social and Economic Transformation", was organized by the Quality Circles Forum of India (QCFI), an ICQCC member, and was attended by more than 3200 delegates from 13 ICQCC member countries (China, the United States, South Korea, India, Japan, etc.).
Chery QC team participated in this meeting with the topic of “Reducing the vehicle jitter in the development stage of models”. This topic takes user experience quality as the starting point and centers on the degree to which this issue affects the user's driving experience. Team members constantly broke through the quality and technical bottleneck in the improvement of the topic, made continuous quality and technical innovations, systematically solved the problem of poor vehicle jitter experience, successfully reduced the vehicle jitter failure rate to 0.25%, and greatly improved the user's car experience and driving and riding pleasure. The results were published in China as a quality technical paper, providing a reference and solution to a similar problem in the automotive industry.
