Learn the skills needed to implement the APQP process, develop control plans and complete the production part approval process smoothly, efficiently and effectively within your company. Additionally, acquire the skills necessary to complete all five APQP phases from "voice of the customer" through final output, including control plan methodology and PPAP submission.
Through group activities and hands-on coaching, you learn the importance of thorough planning activities and develop a functional timing plan for production and delivery of a simulated product. Using simulations, groups work with customer engineers to develop a customer requirement and take it from prototype to a functionally acceptable and capable part. Realism is enhanced as teams develop flow charts, process instructions and control plans for the product and carry them through to PPAP submission.
