Course Description

Learn the skills needed to implement the Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) process, develop control plans and complete the production part approval process smoothly, efficiently and effectively within your company. Establish the foundation to avoid Murphy's Law — things that could go wrong don't have to with successful use of Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEAs). Acquire the skills necessary to complete all five APQP phases from "voice of the customer" through final output, including control plan methodology and Production Parts Approval Process (PPAP) submission. This course will also teach you the skills to understand and use FMEAs as well as risk reduction and defect prevention.
