PPAP for New Family Revisions when the Part has not changed



We have a customer who has multiple parts on their drawings. Each time there is a change to one part - all the other parts pop up for a PPAP.
This is rather a nuisance....We do a lot of PPAPs for this customer.

I'm trying to propose to the customer that we come up with a cover sheet - sort of an abbreviated design review sort of thing - that we can use in such cases. Instead of submitting a new PPAP for the parts, we can just verify the design hasn't changed and either just submit this form or - attach this to the front of the previous PPAP and submit as a package.

I guess I'm wondering if anyone else has dealt with this kind of thing and how you handled it.



Submit a warrant with comments stating the previous PPAP parts are dimensionally identical. If the added part is made include an ISIR for the dimensional changes only.


Thanks. That is what we ultimately decided to do. Your reply confirms my thoughts on it.

I would add that if the customer insists that you do non-value added or even nonsensical PPAP updates, that you discuss the cost involved and what will need to be ppassed on to the customer. That has clipped the wings of a few over-zealous, under-informed Q Mgrs....
