APQP

Schuette Metals uses Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), an in-depth fabrication approach. This approach uncovers and minimizes issues from every possible aspect of the manufacturing process. Our approach means your parts of the project are ready the first and every time.

The number of processes used determines the level of involvement. We involve manufacturing engineers, project managers, quality staff, and even machine operators. Each person delivers a unique perspective critical to fabricating a quality part.

The project moves to the alpha phase in fabricating a test part. There are quality gates at every point of this phase, proving out our overall process to validate every assumption at this point is accurate.

When we're satisfied with the result of a conforming part, we document all the data and put into work instructions providing operators with a starting point.

Any new process changes go into the work order.

Finally, a Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) document is issued, confirming the ability to create a conforming part.
