What is Advanced Product Quality Planning?

Advanced Product Quality Planning is a framework of methods and procedures used to design and develop new products and continual improvement. It considers the end-to-end value chain of product development and helps mitigate possibilities of failure during the entire life cycle. The framework is similar to Design For Six Sigma. Participants will learn about the entire APQP phased process (5 Phases).


Background – Quality is a prerequisite in what we do. Many professionals talk about quality but lack a deep understanding. This course works as an eye-opener to definition, concepts and approaches to Quality. We have conducted this course for Boeing, USA in the past.
