  • Advanced Quality Planning

Advanced Production Quality Planning (APQP) plays a major role in MAMCO’s engineering efforts. Adopting a philosophy known as concurrent engineering, the engineering department pools experience and resources from its own employees as well as the process, quality, and production departments to support the design process. A new product review team examines product engineering changes, evaluates the feasibility of making those changes, and updates the customer prior to any press run. The concurrent engineering approach to APQP also helps improve the processes that drive tooling repairs and improvement projects.

Several factors are key to the success of APQP, including Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) and Production Part Approval Process (PPAP).

  • FMEA - FMEA is the process used in the automotive group to anticipate what can go wrong during a press run. As a component of advanced production quality planning, FMEA utilizes specialized software to design, examine, and enhance parts that are sensitive to potential problem areas.

    For example, engineers might identify a blind pocket in a part that could potentially create gas buildup and cause burn marks. A special insert can be devised to prevent such a burn mark before the part is made, saving the customer money and saving MAMCO costly defect problems down the road.

  • PPAP - PPAP identifies what factors will be statistically controlled during the molding process. This process uses control limits devised during analysis of parts in order to closely monitor a press run.

APQP combines all its components to shorten time to product for a customer.
