Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) is a team-oriented approach that intends to use tools and techniques to formally reduce risks related to production and prior to the release of a product or parts.
The main purpose of the PPAP is to determine that if all customer engineering design record, specifications are properly understood by the organization, the manufacturing process has the potential to meeting quality requirements during an actual production and at the quoted rate. PPAP defines all the requirements for part production approval, process enhancement including production of bulk materials.
PPAP is important for three things:
Cost reduction, faster time to market, and maintaining / improving quality are three tenets for organizations in the always evolving and highly competitive manufacturing industry. Getting quality parts done right and taking corrective action earlier within the lifecycle significantly saves more time and money compared to rework, repair and scrap.
