Program Management

We have deep experience launching programs for Tier 1 automotive, heavy truck, aerospace and industrial customers. Our engineering team brings program management discipline to each stage of the process. We support customer's Advanced Product Quality Planning efforts with timely submittals of PPAPs (Production Part Approval Process), documented control plans, statistical process controls, and guage calibration standards. We provide timely documentation for First Article Inspections (FAIs) and Initial Sample Inspection Reports (ISIR's).

The Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) provides customers with evidence that:

  • Component suppliers have understood their requirements.
  • The product meets the customers requirements.
  • The production process is capable of consistently producing conforming product.
 

PPAP is an important part of the product development process, allowing producers to evaluate the components and sub-systems which they receive from suppliers, and establishing confidence in the supplier's management systems.
