1. GADSL Objectives
Major objectives of automotive product development include continuous improvements in quality, safety, and the reduction of environmental impact throughout vehicle life cycle.As much as possible, these objectives should be achieved in an efficient, cost effective way to optimize consumer value. A large number of construction, operational and processing materials are used in the automotive manufacturing chain, and their selection and proper use can have significant impact on these objectives.
To meet these objectives, an ongoing dialogue and information flow within the global automotive supply chain, including automobile manufacturers, tier suppliers and material suppliers has been established, called the Global Automotive Stakeholder Group(GASG).Early information and dialogue up and down the supply chain will help facilitate compliance with current and future regulations, as well as take into account customer requirements to ensure sustainable products. Optimized handling of relevant information flow can help automobile manufacturers meet existing and projected reporting requirements in a consistent, understandable and efficient way.
The GASG organization consists of three regions, Americas, Europe/Africa/Middle East, and Asia/Pacific. Regional membership and participation is open to all stakeholders in the automotive supply chain. Each of the three regions nominates six members to sit on the governing body of the GASG, called the Steering Committee (SC). The SC meets annually or more at its prerogative to decide on the GADSL and to provide a transparent and open process for decision making.
