Details & Benefits of APQP Training

The process begins with a concept and follows through the entire design, prototype, development, build, and Production Part Approval Process (PPAP). Embedded throughout the entire APQP are the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) Core Tools. These tools, when applied at the correct time, have the greatest influence on product and process success.

This training will concentrate on the development of a production or service process at your organization that meets all customer requirements. Utilizing APQP training will help your team identify required changes early on, avoid changes to the product post-launch, and ensure the on-time delivery of a quality product at the lowest cost.
