DOQS consultants structure the development of your products to guarantee the satisfaction of your customers as well as a robust manufacturing process.
APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) projects are often requested after a LEAN project, because they help to highlight the important costs generated by a product’s weaknesses.
L’APQP/PPAP has supplemented the design for Six Sigma because stages move forward simultaneously instead of sequentially.
It is necessary to understand that the APQP does not immediately bear its fruits. The APQP project also encompasses the planning of manufacturing quality. All inputs relative to the project and the product are planned, managed and overseen from a central interface in order to build on a strong structure and guarantee consistency of documentation (through the Production Part Approval Process, PPAP).
