Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP)



Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) is a structured method of defining and establishing the steps necessary to assure that a product satisfies the customer. It provides a set of detailed requirements to be undertaken at each stage in the APQP system. APQP is used when a new and/or significantly changed product or process could lead to a failure that would expose the supplier to customer dissatisfaction, safety concerns, or unplanned increase of cost to produce. The goal of APQP is to facilitate communication between all persons and activities involved in a program and ensure that all required steps are completed on time, of high quality and at acceptable cost.


This APQP PPT training presentation can be used to brief your employees to create awareness of the APQP quality standard. Alternatively, the presentation can be used to supplement your IATF 16949:2016  and/or ISO 9001:2015 materials for the training of QA professionals and internal auditors.
