We are a small - but powerful - consulting service company for quality responsibilities with focus on the car industry. The SCHAKAU company was founded in 1996 in Beckum, North Rhine-Westphalia. In 2012 we successfully became a society with constricted accountability. With the organisation change we moved to a new head office - Annavilla Beckum. This mansion was built in 1923 and offers with its firm value the ideal frame to develop new and well-thought-out ideas.

Meanwhile our expertised team consists of 20 adepted senior and junior consulters who are specialized in the implementation of strategic and functional responsibilities in the car industry. Furthermore we have a network of independent cooperation partners we could contact in case of need.

Our special focus is quality management. We create complete new quality systems (ISO 9001/IATF 16949), special quality responsibilities in project, global supplier management or general responsibilities in project management.

We use the accredited tools and methods of the car industry, for example:

  • Project organization and level of technical maturity in the development phase according to APQP
  • Risk rating according to FMEA
  • VDA Audits (NEW potential analysis VDA 6.3)
  • Sampling process and requalification according to PPAP or VDA volume 2
  • Claims management according to 8D

Der Mensch ist ein zielstrebiges Wesen, aber meistens strebt es zu viel und zielt zu wenig.

Günter Radtke (1925 in Berlin)
