Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP PPAP) training

On-line training for the powerful APQP PPAP product quality process

Background of the APQP tool

The Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP PPAP) process forms the very heart of robust product development. Developed for the engineering community the APQP tool can be applied to any goods, services or processes that are being developed. The APQP tool has also been successfully deployed in problem solving situations as it brings discipline and structure to the problem analysis.

The APQP tool

The APQP process essentially breaks product development down into 5 basic steps and puts product quality at the heart of each step. The 5 APQP steps are:

  • Plan and define the program
  • Product design and development
  • Process design and development
  • Product and process validation
  • Feedback assessment and corrective action

Applications of the APQP tool

The APQP tool can be used where any goods, services or processes are being developed and is used extensively in the Automotive environment. Essentially the APQP process should be applied in the development of any products where error proofing will improve the quality of the product offered to the customers.
