PPAP for Aerospace Online Training

This PPAP Training online course teaches learners what PPAPs are, why they are important and how to conduct a PPAP by fulfilling all 11 elements of the PPAP Package. This course is specifically focused on PPAPs for the aerospace industry. We also have a PPAP course specifically for the automotive industry.

What is PPAP?

PPAP stands for Production Part Approval Process. It was developed initially by the automotive industry and had been adapted by the aerospace industry as specified in AS9145 with further explanation in AS13100; it is an important part of the 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.
