Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) is a structured framework employed within manufacturing to ensure product quality and customer satisfaction from the earliest design stages through post-production. Typically utilized by product engineers, quality professionals, and project managers, APQP guides the development and refinement of products by emphasizing preventive measures over inspections, and by promoting early identification of potential risks. This methodology not only aligns manufacturing processes with customer needs and expectations but also optimizes resource allocation, ultimately driving efficient production and high-quality end products.
