The Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) is a proven approach for developing a new product to be made in high volume and under strict quality, timing, and cost requirements.
It was developed in the automotive industry. (For their tier 1, tier 2-part suppliers have to implement this approach.) It has also been adopted in other settings with similar requirements, with great success.
APQP essentially helps identify critical to quality sub-systems from the client’s perspective. The production part approval process (PPAP) is an output of APQP processes and techniques. PPAP highlights the evidence established through the APQP. In addition, APQP has become an important factor for automotive, aerospace and defense industry segments as it's a key component of the IATF 16949 standard.
