Meeting Abstract
A growing number of organizations are recognizing the APQP process as a product development best practice that improves performance for new product introduction. To implement APQP effectively, companies must account for a series of key considerations that will determine the success of the initiative and ultimately the performance of future product launches.

Quality system requirements are intended to develop fundamentals that provide for continuous improvement, defect prevention, and the reduction of variation. APQP is at the heart of product development/project implementation and the prime element of successful project success, as it links the special characteristics identified in the project. It then integrates all of the prime tools such as FMEA, MSA, Control Plans, Feasibility Reviews, Operator Instructions, Process flow Diagrams, etc.

This meeting will provide information about the process and example for the successful implementation of the APQP process at companies of all sizes and across industries.
