PPAP is a crucial part of the product development process
Farmingdale, NY (Vocus) August 12, 2010
EtQ, Inc. is pleased to announce its Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) module as part of its latest release, Reliance 7.1.
EtQ’s PPAP module provides a collaboration process to efficiently manage the flow of information between a vendor and a customer on product design.
PPAP allows producers to evaluate the components and sub-systems that they receive from suppliers, and therefore establish confidence in the suppliers' management systems. This module ensures that suppliers comply with the exact design specifications of the customer.
“PPAP is a crucial part of the product development process,” stated Morgan Palmer, Chief Technology Officer at EtQ. “It ensures that the customer will be getting exactly what they are looking for from each of their suppliers. This ability not only ensures the safety of the end product by reducing risks before it is released, but it also promotes a better relationship between customer and supplier. Ultimately, PPAP provides the customer with the evidence that their suppliers thoroughly understand requirements, the product is meeting customer requirements, and the production process will consistently provide conforming products—all of which lead to improved quality throughout the product lifecycle.”
PPAP is just part of the latest enhancements available in Reliance 7.1. For more details on other enhancements to the latest release, visit EtQ on the Web at http://www.etq.com.
