Supplier PPAP – What Software Does and Does Not Work & Why

“We spent over 5 years and $5M trying to get three different PLM apps launched for PPAP and they all failed.  It wasn’t until I heard this presentation that I understood why.”

An engaging presentation about the lessons learned from companies trying to manage the Supplier Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) Process, including Product lifecycle management (PLM), Supplier Portals, Project Management, Enterprise Quality Management Software system (EQMS) , emails and spreadsheets. Plus, advice on how to get your project funded.

Without understanding what your people need and how the process works, the software will fail.

Topics include:
– Why isn’t my PLM effective
– Why Supplier Portals that simply upload spreadsheets are a risk
– Why project management tools that have added generic Process Flows, Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), and Controls Plans, are ineffective
