The use of the Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) is required by all companies seeking compliance and registration to ISO/TS 16949:2002.  PPAP applies to all production and service commodities, including bulk materials.

This ONE-DAY course provides guidance on PPAP and its use in determining if all customer engineering, design record and specification requirements are fully understood by the supplier and that the process has the potential to produce product meeting those requirements during an actual production run.

Key Session Topics

  • Requirements for part approval
  • Determining when submission is required
  • Submission levels
  • Capability requirements
  • The documentation required for submission


  • A knowledge of the Part Approval Process sufficient to allow you to make PPAP submissions to customers.

Who Should Attend

  • Manufacturing managers and engineering managers who need to improve manufacturing capability, predict initial product yield and improve cross-functional technical communications.
  • Quality/Reliability managers and engineers who want to facilitate an understanding and application of these tools within their organisation.

Course Techniques

An understanding is developed through the use of tutorial sessions, practical and interactive workshops and case studies, which provide you with the opportunity to put the skills taught into practice. The limited class size provides high tutor/delegate interaction.


Consultancy assistance with attendees' documentation and implementation programmes can be provided.
