APQP - Product Planning / PPAP - Production Process


SE Advance Product Quality Planning, or APQP, is a software developed to automate the methods for managing the development and change of products. It serves as a guide in the product development process, while also standardizing the methods of sharing results between suppliers and manufacturers.

The solution helps ensure simple and effective control in the development of new products as well as using the appropriate resources to guarantee customer satisfaction, early identification of required changes, and quality products delivered on time and at the lowest possible cost.

SE APQP uses a powerful mechanism that ensures all activities and deadlines throughout the APQP process are completed within a timely manner. The solution also meets the requirements established by international standards and regulations such as ISO/TS 16949, VDA, and others.
