Phase 1

Planning and Program Definition

Evaluation, Prototype Control Plan

KST is IATF 16949 certified and utilizes Advanced Product Quality Planning to manage its workflow.  It defines a process for the introduction of a new product with a minimal amount of risk.

When a customer requires the introduction of a new product or the redesign of a mature one, preliminary planning becomes essential, even before discussions of product design or redesign. In this APQP phase, planning is directed at understanding the customer’s needs and product expectations.

Planning activities include collecting key data to prospectively define what the customer wants and through collaborative discussion further solidify product characteristics.

Ultimately, the output from this phase of work results in the delivery of project scope (design, reliability, and quality goals), project resources, and project timing being identified.

Phase 2

Design and Development of a Product

Tooling Design & Manufacture, DFMEA

Design and development of a product, or production design change becomes the focus activity. At this time Design Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (DFMEA) created in support of the design activity.

Resulting outcomes from work in this phase include:

  • Completed design review and verification
  • Defined material specifications and equipment requirements
  • Completed Design Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (DFMEA) to assess failure probabilities
  • Established control plans for product prototype creation

Phase 3

Design and Development of Process

Tooling Manufacture & Trial, PFMEA

This phase focuses on planning the manufacturing process that will produce the new or improved product. The goal is to design and develop the production process while keeping product specifications, product quality, and production costs in mind. The process must be able to produce the quantities needed to meet expected consumer demand while maintaining efficiency.

Examples of outcomes in this phase include:

  • A completed process flow configuration
  • A completed process failure mode and effect analysis to identify and deal with risks
  • Operational process quality specifications
  • Product finishing and packaging requirements

Phase 4

Validation of the product

ISIR | MSA | PPAP | Product Control Plan

Validation of the product, process, or any changes to the production process is being made. At this point, a significant production run takes place which is used to collect information to confirm the that resulting product and process have the potential to produce the conforming product at the required rate, under normal production conditions. Also, the product quality planning activities culminate in the customer approval activity often referred to as the Product Part Approval Process (PPAP). Successful PPAP flags the project as being fit for entering into production.

Steps in this phase include:

  • Confirming capability and reliability of the manufacturing process and product quality acceptance criteria.
  • Performing production trial runs
  • Testing product output to confirm the effectiveness of the deployed manufacturing approach
  • Reconciling needed adjustments before moving to the next phase

Phase 5

Feedback, Assessment and Corrective Action

Internal Quality Audit & Improvement Activities

Continuous improvement of the product and process with a focus on improvement in safety, quality, delivery and costs.
