APQP Challenged? Drive Cost and Time Out of Your APQP Process

APQP Challenged? Drive Cost and Time Out of Your APQP Process

June WebinarWatch It Now

During this webinar we’ll look at the challenges around meeting your customer’s APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) requirements and explore effective approaches that will avoid typical time sinks and improve the compliance process overall.

Is your engineering team spending more time updating Gantt charts than doing actual product development work?

Do you feel like inadequate planning and coordination unnecessarily drive up the cost of your parts?

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Eliminate/reduce expediting costs with tools that help build scheduling cushions for you and your sub-tier suppliers
  • Minimize the cost and effort of compliance with OEM certification and validation programs
  • Trim time from basic processes like sending and receiving files and CAD data
  • Identify and eliminate risky and/or unprofitable projects in your portfolio via up-front analysis and cost estimation
  • Automate key repetitive APQP tasks (like issue reporting) to increase throughput and allow your project engineers to stop juggling and start handling more APQP projects
