Date : 9 to 10 February, 2021

Time : 1400 Hrs to 1700 Hrs


New Product Development assumes lot of significance and has become very much essential for sustaining business growth of industries. However often many costly mistakes and time delay happen in new development of Products / Parts as well as processes. APQP mitigates such risks by following a systematic approach & upfront actions to ensure first time right from the beginning. All OEMs now mandate use of APQP as this system helps in development of product / process faster well in time, defect free and within budget.
PPAP is part of the APQP process and documents a series of agreements between the supplier and customer to ensure timely development and consistent quality supplies as per customer requirement. It is the successful culmination of the APQP process wherein Customer approval is obtained for going into mass production of a new product, or after product or process change.
Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing an online training on Fundamentals of Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) & Implementation of the Production Part Approval Process (PPAP).
This programme will help in achieving "First Time Right" development of parts resulting in consistent Quality, saving in time and cost as well as enhanced customer satisfaction.
