I am currently in the process of moving a particular component to a new supplier (stamping process). As part of moving it, the new supplier needs to submit a new PPAP package. Normally I would have them complete a capability study as part of the package. However, the purchasing dept. has agreed upon a 300 pc. order (three separate part numbers, a -001, -002, and -003) to get samples made, measured, and all the other fun stuff associated with a regular PPAP. However 300 pcs is about a 10 minute run, and to have them do a capability study based on this run time seems pointless to me. Does anyone see a problem with qualifying this supplier as "conditional", and have them submit a full capability study based on an 8 hour production run once purchasing gives them a full order? Then, assuming the study comes back in order, granting full approved supplier status?
