Is this for something in electronics? I found "q map" to come up as "quantized maximum a posteriori". That then generated a bunch of links including this.

The other option is to reach out to your customer and ask for more details about their request...without saying you don't know what it is. They might provide information that will point you in the correct direction.

Personally I'd explain that I had never heard of a "Q-Map", respectfully ask the customer what it is and where the requirement for one is. I have never heard of a Q-Map before. It isn't in the APQP or PPAP manuals.

Tell me what it is and if it's not part of a standard PPAP package, I might want to add an additional charge if it's more work and isn't somewhere in their Customer Specific Requirements or the contract. If it IS somewhere in their Customer Specific Requirements or the contract, then what a Q-Map is should have been asked at the contract stage.

Hello All!
Thanks for many ideas! I found an example in our system in the meantime.
The requested Q-map contain the sample product of cad pictures, part pictures (on every assembling process), inspection system,same like beforehand attached document by Miner. Yes, I think I must ask the customer about Q-map, what customer wants exacly...
Thanks again!
