I'm working with a client that is going to PPAP 75 part numbers. I'm developing metrics (in addition to the project tracker) that visually displays the progress through charts and/or graphs.

Some of the items are" Number of PPAPs submitted, completion of APQP, PPAPs approved/rejected, etc. Does anyone have a metric template they have used? What other important metrics should I report?

Re: PPAP Metrics

Project tracker or Gantt Chart or a simple excel spreadsheet with columns, colors and notes.

It sounds like you have a lot of time in your hands.

Keep it simple and focus on what matters - efficiency and effectiveness of process.

Actually I don't have a lot of times on my hands. My client has decided to circumvent the majority of the APQP process and go straight to PPAP. I am tracking progress using excel (don't like MS Project), but the management team wants charts and graphs to show progress. I presented simple metrics with a shared tracking sheet. I have everything I need, but they keep dreaming up more stuff!

I presented a simple chart.....one guy wants a shadowed, exploded pie chart!

Well, then... You're dealing with some people who - Well, don't understand. There is "reasonable" and there is "unreasonable". I'd ask the person what the content of the pie chart should be - "Shadowed and exploded" is a request for "art work". I do see that in data analysis with programs such as SAS, but that's data analysis software.

I like MS Project a lot, but I'm on a Mac so... I have an old version which isn't compatible with the newer versions. A PITA, but I did like it.

The biggest question is, what software will your company allow, if any (assuming it's a company computer), not to mention the cost. In my case, I always have my personal laptop so... It's just a matter of printouts. No biggie.

Project planning software is worth it's weight in gold, if you ask me - But, I have done some projects in large companies which only have a license for Office so it's Excel so that you can communicate between a lot of people. MS Project is a "per seat" charge, if I remember correctly, so not many companies will spring for the cost.

Add: I would ask for an example of what their expectations are, such as what another supplier is giving them that they are satisfied with.

Thanks Marc. I talked them off of the ledge with an excel example. Mr. Presentation master was overruled by one of the managers. He knows that fancier charts cost more and it is not cost effective.

How will this happen? PPAP is an internal audit reporting on the status of APQP.
All 18 elements must be documented on every product submission. The only difference is submission levels is how much data to copy.

Too bad the company did not invest time in developing an AIAG APQP checklist(s) (A1~A8) check-sheets or combo check-sheets. If they had, then a self-updating dashboard, which could show progress by day, hour, on-demand, etc., could have been constructed. They need to start developing one now for future projects.

I would also suggest using bar or column charts instead of pie charts for better comparative visualization.

Hello..I'm in a similar situation and would like to develop metrics for the number of PPAP's I'm evaluating..Have you had a chance to develop a template? If so, could you please share it with us?


Thank you!
