Companies that apply Advanced Product Quality Planning, gain improved efficiencies and reduced costs in new product and new process introductions, with lower product defects and better on time delivery performance.

Companies that apply Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) as the culmination of Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), gain greater customer confidence in their ability to introduce new products and processes or make changes to existing products and processes.

Certification

There is a 2 hour open book exam at the end of this course which is underwritten by the SMMT IATF Oversight office. The exam is recognised at an industry level and demonstrates the successful delegate has attained a minimum level of competence in the Aerospace core tools and APQP/PPAP.

Upon completion of the course and passing the end of course exam you will receive a SMMT IATF Oversight Office AS9145 Practitioners Certificate.
