Quality Planning & Engineering

Advanced Product Quality Planning
Mechanical Engineer's Sketch


Whether you are planning to launch a new product or looking to bring order to a chaotic supply chain situation, Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) is the way to bring order and structure. Developed over many decades, APQP involves organizing quality planning activities in a sequenced manner. 

Our team will collaborate with you to develop a quality plan that ensures the smooth launch of new products, the stable production of existing products, and support in driving continuous improvement and product innovation based on customer feedback.

At any stage of your product life, we can bring in quality engineers with extensive experience. Our quality engineering services can ensure your product is designed, manufactured, and inspected following best practices. We can also help diagnose quality problems. Our engineers work on site or remotely, depending on the scope of work required.  

Example Deliverables 

  • Develop comprehensive process control plans, ensuring your product is thoroughly inspected during every step of the manufacturing process. 

  • Manufacturing troubleshooting, problem diagnosis, and solution development

  • Assembly Tolerance Stack Analysis

  • Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) drawing analysis, inspector and line worker training

  • Gage R&R Training and Support 

  • Failure Mode and Effects Analysis workshops

  • Statistical Process Control (SPC) / Process Capability Studies 

  • Visual Quality Standards and inspection procedures

  • Develop measurement processes for product measurement, including specification of equipment.

  • Design and produce test rigs, jigs, and fixtures
