What are the 5 phases of APQP?

The five phases of APQP are:

Plan and define product quality objectives. This phase involves defining the quality objectives for the product, and developing a plan to achieve these objectives.

Develop a design and process FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis) to identify potential failure modes and their causes and effects. This phase involves identifying potential failure modes and their causes and effects, and developing strategies to prevent or mitigate these failures.

Plan and conduct design and process verification activities to ensure that the product and process meet the defined quality objectives. This phase involves conducting tests and simulations to verify that the product and process meet the defined quality objectives.

Plan and conduct design and process validation activities to ensure that the product and process are capable of meeting customer requirements in mass production. This phase involves conducting tests and simulations to validate that the product and process are capable of meeting customer requirements in mass production.

Implement ongoing monitoring and feedback processes to ensure that the product and process remain in control and continue to meet quality objectives. This phase involves implementing ongoing monitoring and feedback processes to ensure that the product and process remain in control and continue to meet quality objectives.
