Drive APQP Costs Down through Better Processes

Drive APQP Costs Down through Better Processes

Drive APQP Costs Down through Better ProcessesThe challenge in today’s global economy is managing projects among different sites. Locating information, coordinating designers and engineers, sticking to schedules and delivering on time and on budget become increasingly tedious and time-consuming tasks. 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 theory, the APQP process should provide a flow of information throughout a company as well as up and down the supply chain thereby driving quality into product and process,” says Mark Strobel, director, Solutions Portfolio Management, Dassault Systèmes. “However, in practice, there is a huge amount of non value-added administration and paperwork required to correctly manage the process. The problem lies in the numerous documents involved — typically spreadsheets and MS project files stored on each user’s hard drive — and the inability to communicate changes throughout all involved parties in a truly collaborative way.

Let’s Talk About Solutions

  • 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
