CATERPILLAR BGPP (Benchmarking Guide for Painting Process) Questionnaire


Albert Barr

Hello all. I am wondering if anyone has a copy of or any information about Caterpillar's BGPP (Benchmarking Guide for Painting Process) questionnaire. I have started at a new company this week, and we already may have a paint issue brewing....:(.

Thank you!

To elaborate a bit: in February, CAT revised their paint specifications and added a section regarding painter qualification requirements and very specific test panels. It does not appear that my new company has gone through this process yet (we are not a painter, but a component manufacturer.) I am wondering if anyone knows if the questionnaire itself is what is required, or if an on-site audit by CAT folks is actually required at every paint supplier. By reading the specification, it seems that it could go either way. Regardless, I would like to audit our supplier with the CAT questionnaire beforehand, hence my request.

Thank you to anyone that may be able to help!!

Hopefully someone who interfaces with Caterpillar will be able to help with this one. If not right now, since it's a holiday weekend in the US, it may be a good idea to "Bump" this thread in a few days. I know this is an "old" thread, but surely there is someone here who can help.
