SAP Best Practices for Automotive scenario APQP Efficient Project Management with Control Plan shows the full project management cycle following the APQP standard. Supplier.

A business scenario for APQP project management starts by creating a project following the APQP standard. Roles and authorization should be defined for different parties. Interactive operations between the QM, PM, and engineer at the supplier side are then processed. A practical control plan should be created during the procedure, and be seamlessly linked to the quality execution system.

The OEM should also have the possibility to check the working procedures and related documentation through a certain system.

Information Synchronization Solution for OEM and Supplier in SAP BP Standard template delivered for APQP Different roles and authorizations are pre-defined A control plan is generated, and can be transferred to back-end systems OEM transparency enabled

Advanced Product Quality Planning Phase Approach


1) Concept Phase
RFQ / Business case Development Plan Regulations (Laws, Standards, Objectives) Continuous Improvement

2) Product Design
Design FMEA Preliminary Bill of Materials Specification Design collaboration

3) Process Design
Process FMEA Routing creation Process flow diagram Statistical process Control (SPC) Control plan (Model)

4) Validation
Planning and production under real-life conditions Control plan for series production and inspection plan Process audit

5) Product Launch
Quality Inspections during Production Requalification tests Process optimization

Control Plan (Prototype)

Production part approval process

Review SOP Release

A guideline for APQP is included in TS16949 and QS9000, which contains the general requirements on how the supplier should handle a new product development project to meet the customer requirements by planning the product and process quality in advance. In this scenario, the basic requirements from the APQP manual are included in a project template, for preparing plans and checklists, to ensure that Advanced Product Quality Planning is actually carried out at the supplier.
