Production Part Approval Process (PPAP)
PPAP is required by industries that demand high quality, fast-turnaround and no deviation. Use software to drive efficiency and make sure no risk in your manufacturing process is missed.
As documentation changes place increasing importance on production process validation, users of Ideagen’s PPAP software show a commitment to their customers. A commitment to getting things right the first time and delivering exactly what was asked, on-time and on-budget. Ideagen’s PPAP software offers a way to stay competitive in light of increasing regulatory requirements.
The functionality of the PPAP software guides users through the verification process. It saves time, ensures nothing is missed and frees up key staff to work on higher value tasks.

"The system allows real time dynamic access to project specific information; everyone involved in the project can see the status at any point in time. We can also show our customers the status at any point in time, along with record retrieval and traceability at the click of a mouse."
"Previously, a PPAP for our customer took a total of three days and involved paper being laid out everywhere across tables. With Q-Pulse PPAP, I can now do a PPAP with similar requirements in just a few hours."
When working within an automotive or aerospace supply chain there is a requirement to prove that the manufacturing process can consistently meet design requirements during an actual production run at the quoted production rate. Most companies follow the template set out in the AIAG PPAP manual, with some customisation.
Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is used to identify and plan for areas within a process that are at a higher risk of going wrong.
- Use process flow diagram to quickly populate operations
- Add input, output, dimensional and safety characteristics from drawing
- Document potential failure mode, effect, cause and detection/prevention methods
- Automatic calculation of risk priority number
- Assign owners and completion dates to actions
