          COURSE OVERVIEW

          Learn the Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) and its five phases Step by Step with this hands on course

          The Automotive Quality Core Tools are the building blocks of an effective quality management system. They include Advanced Product Quality Planning & Control Plan (APQP), Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), Measurement System Analysis (MSA), and Statistical Process Control (SPC).

          PPAP stands for Production Part Approval Process. It was developed by AIAG (the Automotive Industry Action Group) and it is an important part of their comprehensive Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) approach. APQP was originated to provide a common, standardized process for planning, developing and communicating the requirements and status of new products and services between suppliers and their customers. There are five phases to APQP; PPAP is triggered in Phase 4, Product & Process Validation.

          Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) is applied in manufacturing organisations, to approve initial parts manufactured, for eventual introduction into their future production runs. PPAP defines requirements for this initial part manufacture approval (including production and bulk materials). The objective is to determine if all customer specifications and requirements are properly understood by the supplier. Also confirming that the process has the potential to produce product consistently and reliability to these requirements, under actual production run and rate conditions.

          On the surface, PPAP can appear to be complicated and even overwhelming. Once it is understood, it becomes apparent that PPAP requirements represent the culmination and reporting of activities that any “good” supplier already does. The PPAP Process merely sets out the reporting of activities and results into a structured and consistent format.

          LMR’s PPAP training course takes you through the PPAP process step by step using practical examples at every stage, ensuring an understanding of the theory through a ‘hands on’ approach.

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