Re: What are APQP and PPAP?

Typically a control plan is a type of quality plan. A control plan has a semi-standard format (each customer has their own standard) while the format of a quality plan is undefined. The quality plan is the collection of documents required to produce a product that meets requirements.

Re: What are APQP and PPAP?

Hi,
I work for a large FMCG who is introducing major changes both system and machine wise. Currently we dont do any process capability, FMEA's etc but are very keen and have the support to put what is needed in place to be a WCM.
But as part of bringing some structure to our processes we are looking at using APQP , without trying to scare some of the guys here by scaring them with a load of new tools.

Im putting a workshop together to give a tiny bit of why we want a capable process, very top line what the 5 stages are and a snipet of FMEA and process capabillity to really show the benefits get buy in then and then start the ball rolling. Workshop going to involve statapult so they practically can see what happening. (They will already had basic training in A3 problem solving, understand distribution and S.D).

After all that just really wanting any help on if this is right thing to do and advice or basic exercises which will help really!
Thanks Newby Jane

Hello Jane,

The AIAG APQP guidelines are similar to the activities listed in clause 7.1 "Planning for Product Realization." You may want to point this out.

I can share an excercise with you that I conduct at the beginning of the APQP Course.
  • I break the group in teams of two.
  • Each team lists 5 problems that they have recently experienced.
  • Next they select the #1 problem and list the possible root causes.
  • Then I ask them to list all activities/controls that should have been implemented to prevent that problem form occurring.
  • I then point out how very smart we are in retrospect.
  • I explain that APQP asks us to be proactive and smart beforehand.
  • Next, I engage the group in a discussion about how much time they spend on proactive work versus reactive work and the costs associated with it.
I have some other APQP training stuff that I will dig up.

Good luck!

Stijloor.
Thanks to Stijloor for your informative Post and/or Attachment!

Thanks Stijloor, I think I will give that a go and anything else you find would be a great help. Thanks very much. Jane

Welcome, Jane. You might find that in general you get better results when you define your abbreviations. My assumption is that "FMCG" stands for "Fast Moving Consumer Goods" (a guess based on Googling) and "WCM" is "World Class Manufacturer" (my own guess), but I don't know what "stata "A3 problem solving" means. I'm guessing also that "statapult" refers to this thing.

Re: What are APQP and PPAP?

Hi Jim, Sorry I forget at times and slip into jargon mode!!
I work for a large food manufacturer who is working to be a world class manufacturer. We are very much at the start of that and laying the foundations. Most managers have gone through basic A3 problem solving which is a structured problem solving method (used commonly at Toytoa, there are many variants with 8D, PDCA and DMAIC styles) we have used it very much to get them to use data in solving problems to track the problem and to ensure they get to the root cause, so all basic stuff. And yes that is a statapult which we will practically be able to show if you control and reduce your variables then your process is more consistent. Thanks Jane
