Critical Capabilities

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.

  • Project Management

    Project management with customisable workflows.

  • Process Flow

    Create process flow diagram, FMEA and control plan within app.

  • Lead Times Tasks

    Set lead times and be notified of tasks at risk.

  • Libraries

    Libraries for quick population.

  • PPAP Reports

    Output professional PPAP report ready for customer to review.

  • FMEA

    Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA).

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
