Caterpillar created the Supplier Quality Excellence Process (SQEP) to recognize those suppliers that demonstrate their commitment to excellence, and drive a "zero defects" culture within their organizations. Certification levels include Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum, reflected in order of increasing difficulty. Suppliers are certified through SQEP by meeting or exceeding stringent supplier performance standards, such as product quality and shipping performance, which are measured over the course of a calendar year.
