 A Structured Method of Defining
and establishing the steps necessary to assure that a Product satisfies the customer  A planning and communication Tool

Benefits Of APQP
• Focused utilisation of resources. •Early identification of required change. •No last minute change. •On time Quality product at lowest cost

APQP Team Initial Task
• Elect a leader. •Assign roles and responsibilities. •Define Customer requirements. •Understand customer expectations. •Identify constraints – cost , time and others. •Asses feasibility of design,requirements of performance and production process.

Stages In APQP
1. Plan and Define Program. 2. Product Design and Development 3. Process Design and Development. 4. Product and Process validation. 5. Feed back assessment and corrective action
