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 delays happen in the 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 the use of APQP as this system helps in the development of products/processes 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 requirements. 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.
