Excellence in Quality & Productivity

ACMA introduced this Award to recognize outstanding achievements by member companies in the area of Quality and Productivity. The award criteria focuses on the foundation elements needed to build a Quality and Productivity culture in an organization.

Excellence in Technology

ACMA Award for Excellence in Technology recognizes independent innovations by member companies within their own fields of activity, which have, as a result, benefited their customers. The technology Award is given for outstanding innovations by member companies through their efforts, which would benefit the Indian Automotive Industry as a whole.

Excellence in Manufacturing

MSME Category:

The award is for “Recognizing Best performing MSMEs” and there are no separate categories for Export, Technology and Q & P.

Large Category:

This recognizes organizations that use Best Manufacturing Strategies and Practices to achieve high performance. It is based on the Shingo Prize Model that is currently administered by Utah University.

The “Recognition for Manufacturing Excellence” includes key elements of manufacturing starting with organisation vision, leadership, strategy, support functions and employee involvement to achieve higher level of customer satisfaction and business performance.

Excellence in Export

The ACMA Export Award gives recognition to outstanding achievements of member units in the field of exports. It aims at promoting export of value-added products. Criteria like net foreign exchange earned, consistency in export, penetration into new markets etc., are also given due weightage for analyzing a company’s export performance. Thus the aim of the Export Award is to recognize the component manufacturer’s actual export performance along with manufacturing capabilities.

Excellence in HR
