APQP-CP-PPAP + APQP PRACTICAL WORKSHOP – AIC – Automotive Intelligence Center


  • 4


    Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) is the methodology to be followed by the manufacturer or supplier to arrive at a finished product. It is very important in complex projects because it greatly facilitates communication between the parties involved, whether they are internal departments of an organization or customers and suppliers. The Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) is intended to ensure that all customer engineering records and specifications are clearly understood. Although similar to APQP, its focus is on the approval of a product that has already gone through the APQP process.

    REMARKS: It is recommended that each attendee brings his or her own computer. In order to evaluate previous knowledge of the subject, an individual questionnaire must be completed beforehand.
