What is APQP?
Advanced Product Quality Planning, or APQP for short
creates a roadmap for developing new products complete with
time-based milestones and decision points along the way. A
major objective of APQP is to provide a vehicle for
suppliers and with customers to work together when
developing a new product. This helps assure that the product
is delivered on time and with the highest added-value. New
Product Introductions (NPIs) have a greater success rate
when the principles of the APQP approach are followed.
APQP has five formal phases. Each phase is connected to
and triggers the next. APQP is not a “use what I like and
ignore the rest” approach. It represents a continuum in
which each phase builds upon the next. Some organizations
precede the “official” five phases with a “Phase 0” that
includes forming a team, defining the scope of the project,
conducting an initial assessment of the projects’
feasibility and establishing documentation and communication
