The saying “Prevention is better than cure” goes a long way to addressing the challenges of advanced product quality planning (APQP).

How does the APQP method effectively secure the critical phases of complex industrial projects?

The information available centrally in real time guarantees the coherence of the product documentation and enables production choices to be adjusted.

Avoiding errors rather than having to correct them is the leitmotif of up-front quality planning.
