Maturity Level Assurance (MLA) ID302

Developed by the German automotive industry Maturity Level Assurance defines a structured approach to managing and controlling new projects.

Increasing product quality and greater competition, combined with a higher demand for quality from end users and rising warranty costs are having an even greater influence on the cooperation between automotive manufacturers and their supply chain.

This manifests itself as intensive interactions between customer and supplier throughout the product development process, leading up to volume production.

Maturity Level Assurance was developed in Germany in 2005 and translated into English in 2010 to structure and support this process.
The approach can be used by any organization to manage and control the new product introduction process with suppliers and includes all the aspects of Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP).
