APQP Activities

Success or failure of programs often stems from the effectiveness of how well or how poorly the APQP process is executed. Utilizing the full efficiency of the APQP process provides valuable analysis of your systems strengths and weaknesses.

Our experienced engineering staff can provide timely support to complete the necessary planning and completion of the APQP documents and processes. Additionally, we can evaluate your critical suppliers' APQP activities, ensuring due diligence has been applied and sufficient resources allocated to achieve successful program launches.

The APQP Planning Chart highlights the need to apply sufficient resources during critical peak periods of a new program. We can help with the following APQP Support Functions:

  • Detailed schedule of supplier APQP actions and milestones

  • Control Plan/PFMEA/Flow Chart

  • Key Quality Characteristic definitions

  • Gage Study and Tolerance Evaluation

  • Product Validation Plan

  • Supplier Inspection Standards


PPAP Approval


Our experienced quality engineers provide the necessary expertise to complete all aspects of the PPAP requirements. Our engineers have completed multiple program launches and are familiar with many customer specific PPAP submissions. Some of the documentation and sample parts that we review and prior to obtaining approval will show evidence that:


  • The customer requirements have been understood

  • The product supplied meets those requirements

  • The process is capable of producing conforming product

  • The production control plan and quality management system will prevent non-conforming product reaching the client or compromising the safety and reliability of finished parts
