APQP step by step

Everything under control from supply to the customer.


What steps and activities need to be performed before a product goes into production to ensure the highest quality product possible for the end customer? This is where APQP comes into play. APQP is short for Advanced Product Quality Planning, which is a very complex approach to pre-production quality planning. APQP describes very comprehensively which steps and activities are necessary before the start of production and is seen more as a process than a method.

Frequently asked questions about APQP

APQP stands for Advanced Product Quality Planning. This is a structured method that is required for successful advance quality planning. The aim is to ensure that the product to be implemented meets the requirements of the end customer.

We integrate Q methods such as FMEA and initial sample inspection. In addition, requirements management is also an important component under solution.

With our measures you will reach your destination safely

As mentioned above, AQPQ stands for Advanced Product Quality Planning. Advanced means that the quality of a product is already determined during its definition and development and not only later during production. As already mentioned, this advanced quality planning is a process that uses standardized methods (FMEA, QM plan, etc.) to ensure that all necessary and required process steps are completed on time.

However, the methods used and their sequence are not set in stone in terms of their timing and can vary as needed. Ultimately, the aim of advance quality planning is to be used as a basis for the creation of QM plans in order to manufacture a product that largely satisfies the customer.
