What Is PPAP?

PPAP stands for Production Part Approval Process. It was developed by AIAG (the Automotive Industry Action Group; and it is an important part of their comprehensive Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) approach. APQP was originated to provide a common, standardized process for planning, developing and communicating the requirements and status of new products and services between suppliers and their customers. There are five phases to APQP; PPAP is triggered in Phase 4, Product & Process Validation.

On the surface, PPAP can appear to be complicated and even overwhelming. Once it is understood, it becomes apparent that PPAP requirements represent the culmination and reporting of activities that any “good” supplier already does. The PPAP Process merely helps put the reporting of activities and their results into a structured and consistent format.
