  • APQP  Many organisations are struggling with the concept of advanced quality planning and how to incorporate this methodology into existing framework. Published jointly by DaimlerChrysler, Ford and General Motor, advanced product quality planning is required in the IATF16949 Quality Systems Requirements manual, but it can be used for virtually any other system. Product Quality Planning is a structured method of defining and establishing the steps necessary to assure that a product satisfies the customer. 0/6

  • PPAP  Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) is one of the required procedural manuals of the IATF 16949 Quality System. It was developed by the Quality and Part Approval staffs at Diamler Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors, working under the auspices of the Automotive Division of the America Society for Quality (ASQ) and the Automotive Industry Action Group (ALAG). The intent is to determine if all customer engineering design record and specification requirements are properly understood by the supplier and that the process has the potential to produce product consistently meeting these requirements during an actual production run at the quoted production rate. 0/4
