Next date: 12th September 2023 (Virtual)
Course length: 1 Day
Who should attend?
This course is designed for Management Representatives, Implementation Teams, Internal Auditors and others who are involved in the auditing or implementation of Advanced Quality Planning (AQP) activities including Control Plans. Familiarity with Advanced Quality Planning (AQP) and related Core Tools would be beneficial but not necessary
APQP is used to support the introduction of new products and processes as well as managing changes to existing products and processes.
It is often mandated by automotive, 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. Companies that apply Advanced Product Quality Planning, gain improved efficiencies and reduced costs in new product/process introductions, with lower product defects and better on time delivery performance.
Delegates will become competent in implementing and auditing AQP and creating Control Plans and also develop an understanding of the links to SPC, MSA, FMEA and PPAP.
