									                           Supplier Technical - Team Feasibility Commitment (STFC)


The Supplier Technical Team Feasibility Commitment (STFC) is a key step in the Modine APQP Program
Management process. The STFC should be completed by the Supplier Engineering, Manufacturing, and Qualiity
Team during the Request-for-Quote (RFQ) phase of the program. A completed STFC is a prerequisite to sourcing
for new components, new suppliers, and/or components defined as critical by Modine Engineering, Quality, and

If the supplier is new to Modine, the STFC may be preceded by a Supplier Self Assessment and On-Site Audit at the
Supplier's manufacturing facility to become an Approved Supplier to Modine.

The intent of the STFC is to conduct a detailed review and discussion with the supplier and Modine to ensure that
the specific component design and quality requirements are understood and that the supplier has the capabilities to
support the specific piece of business being bid. Additionally, the STFC review and discussion are designed to
allow the supplier to provide early feedback to Modine on manufacturing or supply feasibility issues associated with
the part design.

The completed STFC document should be submitted to Modine Purchasing along with the Supplier RFQ response.

Please contact your Modine Purchasing Buyer or Application Engineer with any questions regarding the STFC.
