What Quality Means to SAE International

Quality and safety cannot exist without one another. In the mobility industry, pedestrian and vehicle user safety rely heavily on the quality of current and developing technologies. By improving the quality of future products through the standardization of engineering and development process, we not only ensure quality in the present day, but also create a much safer future.

At SAE International, we believe that quality comes from accessibility. As the world’s largest mobility organization, we’re responsible for providing resources, guidance, and education to professionals around the globe. That means creating standards and professional development courses that can be used by everyone.

As technology advances, so too do the expectations around their performance. New tools or methods can make old ways of working obsolete by introducing a better or safer way to do something, changing the definition of quality in that context. SAE operates with a global point of view, and this gives us an advantage in helping serve as a guide to help address changing perspectives in real time as the technology evolves.

Through information design, standards creation, connection opportunities, and professional development resources in both digital and physical spaces, we ensure excellence by leading complex discussions to solve complex problems. SAE’s thought leadership facilitates high quality products and procedures, creating a safer, more reliable mobility industry.
