ADVANCED PRODUCT QUALITY PLANNING & PRODUCTION PART APPROVAL PROCESS

Two Day Work Shop Presented By CTRI ( CT Research Institute)

Research and Training wing of Western Thomson Group.

COURSE OBJECTIVE

Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) is a structured methodology used to develop new products, especially in automotive industry. The purpose of this methodology is to make a product quality plan which will support development of a product or service that will satisfy the customer. APQP facilitates communication with everyone involved in the product development process to assure that all steps are completed in an appropriate manner on time. This would result in providing a quality product to the customer on time at the lowest cost. The Production part approval process (PPAP) is part of APQP that defines a procedure to ensure that the manufacturing process has the potential to produce products consistently to meet all the specifications and requirements during actual production run.

In this work shop, both APQP and PPAP are explained step by step with examples. This workshop would help the participants to understand APQP and PPAP concepts clearly and apply them effectively in their work place for new product and process development.
