About Us
Quality & SQIL

We deliver what we promise.

High standards of integrity and quality

Better with us is a high standard.
To meet this standard, we measure ourselves against ambitious standards: we ensure the quality of our services with our certified quality management system.

Therefore, automobile manufacturers often recommend us to their suppliers as an independent consultant. We support, for example, VW as SQIL in improving software skills.

All our activities are focused on customer value and continuous process improvement. As a consulting company, we specialize in optimizing work processes in product development and  in integrating all relevant best practice standards in the customer-specific processes. In our own business processes, we also focus on these high standards, to be able to provide you with superior solutions every time.

Better with us: With our service commitment we set ourselves a high standard. We also stive for this high standard in our own business processes. Our quality management is - in addition to our superior know-how and our many years of practical experience - a key pillar for excellence.

Systematic Improvement

This is confirmed by our TÜV Nord certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015. "Continuous improvement is firmly anchored in the company, the consultants sensitized accordingly." says Joachim Albertz, Quality Management Officer and Senior Process Consultant: "Many findings from the re-certification are incorporated in the projects that are carried out by our consultants at the customers."

Kugler Maag Cie was evaluated against the quality management system for the first time in 2006. This system has been confirmed and certified by independent auditors from TÜV NORD CERT. The most recent re-certification was in July 2018. 

We live quality

We measure ourselves daily against the high standards we have self-through our quality management system and our Code of Conduct.

The VW AG assigns high priority to the continuous improvement of software quality, also with their suppliers. As part of the ambitious Group Strategy 2018, the Group has set itself the goal " to be a world leader in customer satisfaction and quality through the use of intelligent innovations and technologies." Kugler Maag Cie supports the Wolfsburg-based manufacturer by building and developing software competence in the VW supplier network. 

SQIL. The new role

Kugler Maag Cie was selected to support the process optimization as independent consultants because of the many years of industry experience at VW. The Kugler Maag Cie process specialists were selected through strenuous selection and intensive training. After a successful examination, they have qualified as Volkswagen certified Software Quality Improvement Leader (SQIL).

The training covers knowledge in the areas of  

  • VW requirements on the software quality and the associated development process
  • Technical competence at all levels of the V-model and project management

This qualification scheme ensures that the SQIL suppliers demonstrate that they can achieve the high quality standards of VW. In the projects, the SQIL work for  the supplier, not on behalf of VW. Thus the necessary trust is achieved. A SQIL may, for instance, not pass information about the product on to VW.

The Kugler Maag Cie SQIL are renowned process specialists and have great expertise in the integration of industry standards such as Automotive SPICE and Functional Safety (ISO 26262) and of agile methods. They have earned their reputation on successful improvement programs, through work in industry bodies and as authors and as a trainers in the industry. As Kugler Maag Cie seeks holistic improvement of working methods in product development, our process specialists are often recommended by VW and other manufacturers as consultants.
