Abstract

This paper presents a breakdown of the product quality assurance flow from the Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) methodology within the aerospace industry. It starts with the description of the current requirements for APQP deployment and continues with specific information related to APQP standardization in the aerospace industry, that includes also the AS 9145 aerospace standard. The paper gives step by step guidance on how to implement and use the product quality assurance flow as part of the aerospace APQP methodology. To highlight the contributions for the implementation of core APQP activities per the applicable requirements, the paper includes industry application models. The last part, the conclusions of the paper, provide a list of key points to be considered for any organization within the aerospace industry which aims to implement the Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) methodology based on the AS 9145 aerospace standard.
