Seminar Content

This one-day seminar addresses the purpose of PPAP as the culmination of the APQP process and provides a detailed examination of Production Part Approval Process requirements. We will focus on determining if all customer engineering, design records, and specification requirements are properly understood, and that the production process has the potential to meet these requirements during an actual production run at the quoted production rate.

Who Should Attend

This seminar is designed for program managers, design, quality, and manufacturing engineers, persons who have direct responsibility for preparation, assembly or review of PPAP components or packages, and auditors and those responsible for subcontractor PPAP documentation.

Seminar Goals

  • Explain all items listed as PPAP requirements
  • Explain the purpose of PPAP levels
  • Explain when the customer should be notified of changes
