Course Outline

In order to effectively provide this course, the client will need to provide a complete PPAP package for incorporation into the class and breakout exercises


This one-day overview addresses all the elements of Advance Product Quality Planning (APQP) and defines it as a process in your organization. It provides an overview of the 5 phases of APQP and how it is managed as a process. It also details PPAP as the culmination of the APQP process and provides a detailed examination of Production Part Approval Process requirements.

We will focus on determining if all customer engineering, design record, and specification requirements are properly understood, and that the production process has the potential to meet these requirements during an actual production run at the quoted production rate.

The approaches discussed and employed in this course are consistent with the intent and guidelines in the PPAP 4th Edition manual issued by GM, Ford and FCA through the AIAG.

  • Program Managers
  • Design, Quality, and Manufacturing Engineers
  • Persons who have direct responsibility for preparation, assembly or review of PPAP components or packages.
