APQP is a structured method for defining & executing the actions necessary to ensure the product satisfies the customer requirements.

The APQP approach is typically used during the new model development before product launch.    It is an operational roadmap for consistently mass producing and delivering the current product to customer requirements.  New model products that typically follow APQP process include Core Revisions (Enhanced product changes), Augmented (Modified) product changes, or  Extended product lines.

Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) or First Article Inspection (FAI) Support

Both PPAP and FAI is a standardized process to ensure suppliers can meet the design, manufacturability, packaging,  and quality requirements of the parts supplied to the customer.  As it is often stated, "Anyone can do something once, but can you repeat it again, and again?"   PPAP & FAI helps to prove the supplier has the capability to CONSISTENTLY, deliver the product to requirements before, during, and after launch.  Any changes in the process, requires re-submittal of the product or process for approval.  Our consultants are also available for support on specific target elements (FMEA, Control Plan, Gage R&R, etc.)

Lean Manufacturing Support Services

Lean Solutions is a business system and/or process for identifying those task or activities that are important to the customer and to the business that builds worth, called Value, and minimizing all other task and activities that don’t create value, called Waste.   The term "lean" was coined to describe Toyota Production System (TPS) during the late 1980s by a research team headed by Jim Womack, Ph.D., at MIT's International Motor Vehicle Program as a model for manufacturing process efficiency.   Today, Lean has become one of the fastest growing Business Operating System for transforming  businesses to operate more efficiently.
