Our team of experts can help with the production part approval process (PPAP). PPAP establishes confidence that the component supplier developed their design and production process to meet the requirements of the client. This process minimizes the risk of failure. We provide support in facilitating any and all aspects of the PPAP, including completing submissions.
Advanced product quality planning (APQP) is a structured method of defining and establishing the steps necessary to ensure a product satisfies the customer. Effective product quality planning depends on a company's senior level commitment to the effort required in meeting customer specifications.
Interim quality engineering (QE) support can take many forms. We can help when your quality systems are getting audited. Our consultants can come in prior to an audit to check your records and make sure you're abiding by the quality standards in your industry (AS, IATF, TS, ISO, VDA, etc.). If you've already been audited and failed, this can stop your entire business from moving forward. Our consultants are also able to come in and help you to get your standards back on track.
Process failure modes effects analysis (PFMEA) finds failures that impact product quality, reduce reliability of processes, and cause customer dissatisfaction and safety or environmental hazards. We can help you analyze and write your full PFMEA report.
