Production part approval process

Course description

PPAP is a tool for qualifying a manufacturing process, to give confidence in its ability to produce to contractual requirements. This process covers the approval of first production parts, as well as modified parts.

PPAP is recognized as an effective tool for continuous improvement, contributing to the quality and durability of customer-supplier relations. Recommended by the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG), it is in line with the quality planning and design control requirements of Technical Specification IATF 16949:2016, as well as other industry standards, such as AS9100D, based on or compatible with ISO 9001:2015.

Target clientele

The course is aimed at staff responsible for preparing PPAP files, and those in charge of interfacing with the customer, at direct suppliers of original equipment parts (OEM) or replacement parts, and at secondary suppliers of parts.
