PPAP Training, Production Part Approval Process Training 

PPAP Training, Production Part Approval Process Training Course Description 

PPAP Training course, Production Part Approval Process Training discusses the requirements, procedures and protocols, and practices and activities specified by the PPAP manual.


Through this PPAP training, students prepare a sample PPAP package for submission, from the beginning to the end.

What is PPAP?

Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) is an analysis management to measure the capability of the system. Once the PPAP protocol is obeyed, the number of dysfunctional parts will reduce down to below a handful per million parts produced. This conclusive process will evaluate the performance of all the processes and steps involved in producing parts and it will assure that all the specifications and requirements are met.

This process assesses how well the processes used to produce parts will meet the specifications. Participants who complete this course They also know how to conduct and evaluate the processes, and

Added Value of the PPAP Training:

  • Learn how to evaluate a PPAP report
  • Review and prepare PPAP forms
  • Learn how to submit PPAP reports
  • Discuss the specific needs for part approval records or sample retention
  • Know when/where PPAP submissions are required
  • Recognize various levels of PPAP submission
  • Understand where and how the PPAP submissions can be incorporated into the APQP
  • Understand the statistics of process capability, process capability index, performance capability, and performance capability index (Cp, Cpk, Pp, and Ppk.)
  • Learn how to present the outcomes to the customer in a high-qualified format align with the customer’s expectation.
