A project report submitted to the Faculty of
Engineering, University of the Witwatersrand,
Johannesburg, in partial fulfilment of the
requirements for the degree of

Johannesburg, 1991 / he purpose of this project was to introduce an
affective Quality Control Systems into a newly
established foundry. The parent company expressed
concern about the poor quality of locally produced
castings and decided to invest in it's own foundry. As
the company exclusively produces components for the
motor manufacturing industry it was of paramount
importance that the foundry is equipped and run in
accordance to the high manufacturing standards set by
the major motor manufactures. As the Auto Industrial
Group is committed to a total Quality Control programme in line
with the high-tech motor manufactures it is
obvious that the foundry follow suite. The strategy
adopted was to base a Quality management system along the lines of SABS 0157 and to expand it to ensure that all the quality requirements of the customers are accommodated
