Can I use Multiple Sub-Tier Suppliers for the Same Part Number

Hello,

From my current understanding about PPAP, I know that if i change my suppliers i have to notify my customers and go through the PPAP.

Can I use multiple suppliers inter-changeably for the same part numbers. Do I have to notify my customers with each shipment as to who was the sub-tier supplier that i used.

I am sure everyone has multiple suppliers for one part number for availability of parts and cost reasons.

Your help will be appreciated.

Thank You.

Regards,
Bhaumik

Unless your customer has requirements to the contrary, you do not have to notify the customer so long as you have duly qualified your supplier(s). It wouldn't be unusual for the customer to expect some kind of lot control, so that NC material can be traced, but again, that would be a customer-specific requirement and not a general PPAP rule.

If your customer follows the PPAP, 4th edition. Pg. 13 #5, requires you to notify your customer of new suppliers. Once the PPAP has been approved, you do not need to indicate by shipment which supplier was used, as your traceability should cover that.
