ASEA

Automotive Supplier Excellence Australia (ASEA) is an organisation founded in 2007, whose main aims are to assist the Australian automotive supply base in achieving international competitiveness and business sustainability.  The vision of ASEA is to be the “Preferred provider of sustainable business improvements” with a mission of “Assisting companies to look at their business in new ways to achieve world class levels of competitiveness”.

ASEA is supported by all Australian Motor Vehicle Producers (MVPs), both the Victorian and South Australian Governments, the Federation for Automotive Products Manufacturers (FAPM), the Commonwealth Government and the AutoCRC.

 

The Program

In March 2010 the Commonwealth Government announced the successful tenders for a new scheme called the “Automotive Supply Chain Development Program” or ASCDP, which is part of the New Car Plan for a Greener Future, and provides $20 million to help Automotive suppliers over a three and a half year period.

This scheme which consists of three elements, continues the work commenced by the original ASEA program in 2007, in providing a proven and disciplined process to help suppliers to improve the competitiveness and sustainability of their businesses.

Element 1 of ASCDP is being delivered by AutoCRC via ASEA, and this support is being provided to Tier One, Two and Three suppliers Australia wide.

Assessments

The process used by ASEA is designed to assist the Australian automotive supply base in achieving international competitiveness and sustainability.

Through the creation of an independent, best-in-class benchmarking process and targeted supply chain development initiatives, ASEA can help enable Australian automotive suppliers to achieve world-class capability and competency levels.
