Look! Re: PPAP for beginners

The PPAP reference manual from AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) is a good place to start.

I'd start with a bottle of vodka.

Re: PPAP for Beginners - Where do I start?

You may start to glance through the PPAP manual by AIAG, the general requirement will be inside the manual which most probably submit for automotive customer. Somehow, some customer which is not automotive would also request PPAP submission, then you need to ask the customer their requirement. Their requirement and the form format may differ from manual.

Good point. Automotive APQP has been "appropriated" by many companies, but often they have their own "APQP" process which is not equivalent with the AIAG APQP and PPAP manuals.

Re: PPAP for Beginners - Where do I start?

Hello everyone,

Could you, please, help with understanding the structure and hierarchy of APQP and PPAP abbreviations. Am I right: PPAP is a part of APQP, and PSW is the demonstration that all PPAP req. were fullfilled?
Or, please advise any sources to trace this correlation?

Re: PPAP for Beginners - Where do I start?

Welcome to the Cove Forums!

Yes, PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) is part of APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning).

The purpose is to demonstrate the following:
  • Do you (supplier) have a clear understanding of ALL customer requirements?
  • Do you (supplier) have the capability to meet ALL customer requirements consistently at the quoted production rate?
The PPAP submission requirements are agreed upon between you and the Customer during the contract review stage.
The Customers typically dictate what documents and items they want from you.

The PSW (Part Submission Warrant) is one of the documents that is signed and submitted as part of PPAP submission.

The relevant information regarding all the above can be found in the APQP and PPAP manual and the CSR's (Customer Specific Requirements).

Hope this helps.
Thank You to Stijloor for your informative Post and/or Attachment!
