Advanced Product Quality Planning - IMTMA/Q020

Programme Background

Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) is a structured method of defining and establishing the steps necessary to ensure that a product meets customer specifications leading to customer satisfaction. APQP, if deployed by the team with complete understanding and an eye on the future, can be a very effective tool in an organization ensuring on time delivery of a quality product at the lowest cost. Apart from meeting the timelines and product / process quality which are commonly known targets, APQP can be used as an effective feeder for Knowledge Management in the organization.
