Re: Here are the Various AIAG PPAP Manual 4th Edition Forms
If your customer is Ford, you need to fill out a SREA(Supplier request for Engineering Assistance) form and contact your Ford STA for further direction. If not Ford, find out your customer requirements and contact the appropriate contact. Sales may be able to handle it. But whichever way you go make sure you get a customer signature and date or it could come back to haunt you later.
Many years ago I was out in the plant with a GM engineer and he was reviewing how our parts fit the car. He wanted to make a minor change on our part and told me what to do, and we made the change. Later a GM QC guy came in and said we didn't comply with the print because of the change. I told him the GM engineer told us to make the change, and he asked to see the marked and signed print showing the change. Well, duh, we didn't have anything in writing from GM authorizing any changes
