Cummins values global supplier partners who share Cummins commitment to quality.
To support that end, Cummins has developed and implemented the Cummins Inc.- Supplier Handbook (Customer Specific Requirements) (PDF). The Cummins Inc.- Supplier Handbook (Customer Specific Requirements) (Cummins Inc.-CSRs) contains the minimum quality requirements that a supplier must meet to do business with Cummins. The Cummins Inc.-CSRs applies to all suppliers that provide direct materials to Cummins and any of its subsidiaries, joint ventures, divisions, or affiliates.
The Cummins Inc.-Customer Specific Requirements is aligned with ISO9001:2015 and IATF 16949:2016. All Suppliers to Cummins Inc. must meet the requirements of the Cummins Inc.- Supplier Handbook (Customer Specific Requirements).

What is Six Sigma?
The term "Six Sigma" means more than a statistical measure of predicted defects. At Cummins Inc., Six Sigma is really the banner for committed implementation of a focused business improvement program. Through aggressive application of this methodology, we have been able to solve business issues that have resisted solutions for years.
Why do we teach Six Sigma to our supply base?
