Optimized product quality planning with APQP supports a structured method of defining and initiating the necessary process steps. This systematic approach increases product quality, improves customer satisfaction, and shortens development time. APQP project management supports the complete product development process, across all areas of the company. The user can navigate through the phases of product development from prototype and pre-series tooling to serial production in accordance with Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) and Aerospace standards. Overall project assessment, from the milestones to the individual activity phases, is shown in the form of a Gantt diagram that supports an efficient time scheduling approach and clearly displays pending tasks, their assignments, and upcoming events (Milestone or Q Gate). The checklists can be managed as a part of the overall project plan to monitor the relevant tasks and to ensure that you can develop products that meet customer requirements.
The control plan is a central element of advanced product quality planning (APQP) and provides standardized documentation of scheduled actions for successful process monitoring. A Control Plan displays all major process steps and quality inspections and provides links to their respective characteristics.
Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is a methodology that allows companies to assess risks associated with possible product failure. The damage caused by potential defects can often be linked to increased warranty costs, impaired product functionality and safety, and an inability to meet required industry standards, among other potential consequences. An advanced FMEA solution is one of the most important tools a company can use to avoid product defects and process errors.
To ensure the quality of delivered parts, suppliers demand compliance with the respective norms. This affects the choice of supplier, first sampling, and quality performance across the whole series. First Sample Inspection enables comfortable and efficient planning, creation and administration of first sample inspection reports in accordance with VDA and other standards.
