As noted earlier, one should not look at this entirely in a linear fashion. However, to some degree one may look at the phases with an eye to critical paths. For example, design goals, a Phase 1 output, is necessary for completion of certain Phase 2 outputs (for example the Design FMEA).
Step back and ask yourself: “…What do I need before I can complete my Control Plan?…” There may be inputs your company utilizes which are not listed in the APQP manual.
If you try to draw a direct line from an input to an output (such as from design goals to design FMEA above), you will not always have a clear 1 to 1 relationship. As an example, when design goals are established and documented they will probably have an effect on a number of the outputs. In this case design goals may affect the design FMEA, design verification test design, certain engineering and material specifications, and the prototype build control plan.
