International quality standards for manufacturing continue to increase and many industrial companies are requiring that their suppliers use PPAP, which stands for production part approval process. Created and utilized first by the automotive industry, PPAP is a risk identification and mitigation process used to provide evident to the customer that there is a reliable and repeatable process. PPAP helps to ensure better communication between a customer and supplier in hopes that there will be fewer turn backs and revisions to the product or process.
The Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) is a standardized process in the automotive and aerospace industries that helps manufacturers and suppliers communicate and approve production designs and processes before, during, and after manufacture. Created in hopes to promote a clearer understanding of the requirements of manufacturers and suppliers, PPAP helps ensure that the processes used to manufacture parts can consistently reproduce the parts at stated production rates during routine production runs.
