Advance Product Quality Planning (APQP) and Control Plan

Course Description

This virtual instructor-led course will help you gain an understanding of basic industry requirements for achieving part approval from your customer. Control Plan will also be taught during this course. A control plan is a document describing the critical to quality characteristics, the critical Xs or Ys, of the part or process. Through this system of monitoring and control, customer requirements will be met, and the product or process variation will be reduced.

The AIAG Automotive Quality Core Tools Manuals (student is responsible for purchasing) are used for this training and are the building blocks of an effective quality management system. These proven tools have been adopted by other manufacturing sectors, including aerospace, defense, medical, and pharmaceutical.

Organizations that have mastered the Core Tool processes can assure that their customers will receive a consistently high quality, reliable product.
