          COURSE OVERVIEW

          Learn How to Apply Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) & Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) for the Aerospace Sector

          This two-day course specific to the Aerospace Sector is designed to provide participants with an understanding of Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) and how to implement APQP as part of the New Product Development process. You will also learn about the Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), which includes where and when to incorporate prevention tools and methodologies such as DFMEA, MSA, Process Flow, SPC, PFMEA, and Control Plans.

          What are APQP and PPAP

          Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) and Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), are methods for controlling the introduction of new product or processes or introducing changes to existing product or processes. Initially developed by the North American Automotive Industry the methodologies have now been adopted as best practice and  increasingly being utilised by the Aerospace industry to manage and to improve quality, efficiency, cost and delivery. It is often mandated by aerospace and other engineering primary manufacturers as a specific requirement on their suppliers to give them assurance of effective and efficient product and process introduction.

          Failure to apply APQP can lead to problems when you scale up your manufacturing production volumes, which can result in an increase in costs and waste of resources to solve ‘teething problems’ and issues that could have been identified initially if a strict APQP process had been applied. Effective planning along with the utilisation of a cross-functional team at the start of a new project extensively increase the project’s chances of success.

          The course provides an overview of the tools, procedures and reporting requirements specified in AS9145; detailing the critical steps in the Product Quality Planning Cycle and the role of the control plan(s).

          The AS9145 standard is a structured framework to plan and complete actions for the product realisation cycle which are necessary to ensure quality products are delivered on time, whilst achieving cost performance targets. It establishes requirements for performing and documenting APQP and PPAP. APQP begins with conceptual product needs and extends through product definition, production planning, product and process validation (PPAP), product use, and after-delivery service. The standard integrates and compliments 9100, 9102, 9103, and 9110 standard requirements.

          *This course can be tailored to your requirements and delivered ‘in-house’ at your premises or in one of our well equipped training venues.

          WHO SHOULD ATTEND

          • Senior Managers and Management Representatives
          • Internal Auditors, Implementation Teams and others involved in the auditing or implementation of Advanced Quality Planning (AQP) activities including AS9102 First Article, AS13004 PFMEA and Control Plans, AS13003 MSA and ongoing process control and process improvement.
