AS9145 Training (APQP and PPAP) Overview

Course Duration: 2 Days - 8 Hours/day

This Two-day seminar is designed to provide participants with an understanding of how the risk management elements of Aerospace Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) help ensure successful launches based on robust New Product Development processes, as well as how to employ the same tools to manage continual improvement in products and processes. The multidisciplinary approach to APQP knowledge management is stressed as essential to shortening development cycle times and reducing launch risk in new product introduction.

This seminar also provides guidance on the Aerospace PPAP. It shows where and when to incorporate prevention tools such as DFMEA, DFM/DFA, Process Flow, PFMEA, Control Plans, MSA, and SPC. This class provides a comprehensive overview of the overall APQP and Core Tools suite.

APQP and PPAP with the associated tools needs to be integrated with AS9100D clause 8.0 Operation.
