APQP Training

What is APQP Training?

APQP training is, at the base, a structured protocol that is designed to aid organizations in improving the rate at which their customers are satisfied with whichever new products that an organization wants to launch.

Our APQP training course comprises six modules, each of which focuses on a particular aspect of a high-quality overall planning model. Our overall course trains your employees on modules handling SPC, MSA, FMEA (DFMEA and PFMEA are handled in separate courses), PPAP, and Translating Customer’s Requirements (which is related to FMEA).

Advanced Product Quality Planning training is a reliable way to help your employees, leadership, and overall organization structure the way they approach the launch of new products and services—but its most important benefit is to Quality Assurance and Prevention. Our APQP training scheme takes places across five days and five modules, designed to train participants on every aspect of product and process management, including trouble-shooting, risk prevention, running more effective simulations, and making use of the latest in statistical methods to learn more about how robust your organization’s processes are.

In keeping with the latest surge in technological advances, it’s vital that your organization stays up to date with the most recent advances in APQP development, and APQP training with The ISO Edge is the single best method available at the moment to ensure that nothing slips under the radar, as well as guaranteeing that your group can take advantage of cutting-edge techniques to keep your customers happy and your business healthy.

APQP is a planning methodology, and the overarching structure has stayed the same at its base for decades, although its component parts have been improved and refined in that time. In recent years, new software tools have become available to assist with planning, making it even more beneficial to have employees trained in APQP—so they can make the most of the latest developments.

How does APQP Training work in Canada?

APQP itself is a catch-all term, which encompasses a range of other methods and procedures, such as those found in Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), and Statistical Process Control (SPC). Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) is also usually grouped under the same heading as the other methods listed above, as is IATF 16949.

It would be a mistake, however, to assume that APQP can be adequately described by explaining what each of the component tools brings to the table, as the protocol as a whole integrates each of the processes and as such requires a more thorough approach, especially when it comes to APQP training. The benefits of planning in the structured way we train your employees in our APQP training courses are a) measurable, and b) beneficial in the long term. By improving your ability to plan, you’re future-proofing your organization against unforeseen hiccups down the line, leading to less risk as well as less wastage of labor and capital.

Comprehensive APQP Training

By assuming a structured, rigorous approach to the way your organization tackles product and process design problems, APQP effectively functions as a framework, within which a wide variety of quality requirements are accounted for. Each of these rules has been designed in order to satisfy the customer, and in our APQP training modules, customer satisfaction takes center stage every step of the way.

As one of the top APQP training groups in Canada, we base our APQP training philosophy around the idea of making use of as many different strands of the organization in question as possible. To this end, communication and collaboration are both key components of the experience your organization will undergo throughout the course of our APQP training program. We believe that businesses are best structured holistically since once each component part has been paid due attention, the whole will function much more smoothly (and with a minimum of wasted capital, time, and other resources) than if some aspects of the company weren’t accounted for.

Leading APQP Training Group in Canada

There are many tangible benefits your organization will be able to take advantage of once they’ve begun the process of APQP training with us, The ISO Edge. While we can’t possibly list every way it’ll improve, we can extrapolate a few consistent advantages our previous clients have reported after engaging with our APQP certification services, which are as follows:

Pre-Planning to Control Variables

APQP is a disciplined planning strategy which can be used for the process of getting ready to launch a product. It’s an intuitive way to pre-plan to control variables within a supply chain, essentially offering the group making use of APQP a chance to trouble-shoot potential problem areas at the conceptual stage as opposed to the manufacturing stage.

Tighter Relationships Between Process and Design

It’s a mistake to keep the design and manufacture processes of any given product too far apart, and there isn’t any sound reason for doing so in the first place. After you’ve achieved your APQP competency or qualification with us, you’ll have a much better understanding of just how closely these two areas can work together, and you’ll also begin to see the benefits of encouraging collaboration between these two elements as early as possible in the overall creative process.

The Depth and Breadth of our APQP Training course

By spreading the modules in our course out across a number of different days, we’re able to ensure that your employees are trained on all the relevant areas as deeply as possible. The individual modules vary in length from four to eight hours, with each one designed to impart as much knowledge as possible without overwhelming the participants.
