Take a look at the new prices for the 2010 AIAG catalog 5 pack.
http://www.aiag.org/staticcontent/files/AIAGBook.pdf
CT-K​
Supplier Quality Requirements 5 Pack​
Includes the latest editions of ve recommended production
supplier manuals common to Chrysler, Ford and GM (APQP, PPAP,
FMEA, MSA and SPC)
Format: Hard Copy Member: $110.00 List: $700.00

Of course to be a member, we have priced it at about $3500.00 is cost prohibitive, the alternative is $700.00...I guess its a tax write off but even so...

Re: Standards...what promotes copyright infringement?

Hey, they have to make a living too, and to pay nice bonuses occasionaly! They have a monopoly on the books and are asking what they think they can get. What's a $700 expense compared to the profits made from being in the automotive industry? There is a lot of value added by these books. Just think about it: you follow the guidelines and submit a PPAP only to have it rejected by the customer because you did not use their format for the PFMEA or Control Plan. Or even worse, you did not folow their symbols on the Process Flow Diagram. So, my friend, swollow hard, fork out the money and be a good supplier. :(

By the way, do you know where I can download the latest versions for free? :)
