Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) Overview

APQP is a structured method of defining and establishing the steps necessary to ensure that a product satisfies the customer. APQP is commonly used in the automotive industry. In this workshop, you’ll obtain a solid understanding of APQP as described by AIAG by learning about the APQP process as well as tools and activities, including FMEA and control plans.



– Define advanced product quality planning (APQP) and describe its purpose.

– List the benefits of APQP.

– Describe the APQP process and the goal, tasks, and activities of each step.

– Explain the purpose and goal of failure mode and effects analysis, measurement system analysis, production part approval process, and control plans.


Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) Overview

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis, or FMEA, is a structured approach used to identify ways in which a product or process can fail , estimate risk associated with specific causes, and prioritize actions that should be taken to reduce risk. In this workshop, you’ll learn about FMEA as described by AIAG, including the format and content of FMEAs.



– Define FMEA and describe the purpose of FMEA.

– Describe the two types of FMEAs.

– Define severity, detection, and occurrence as they relate to FMEAs.

– Describe the FMEA template and the information it contains.


Intended audience: manufacturing personnel at all levels who want to learn more about FMEA.
