When customers send us a development inquiry, we will start a feasibility study in cross-functional communication before quotation. In consideration of mechanics of materials, machining accuracy, capacity loading, competitiveness, plant equipment, and any factor during production which may have an impact on the environment, with full communication in advance with customers, we will finalize to quote or not.
Upon customers agreeing to the project, our R&D dept. will call a kick-off meeting for a new development project. R&D dept. will coordinate with relevant dept. for customer requests such as spec, quality, delivery date, package and logistics, and also designate representatives from Sales, QA, R&D, Machining, Logistics, Purchasing to be “APQP Cross-Functional Team.” If necessary, customers or suppliers will be in the team, too. After APQP Team was set up, team members will work together regularly for product details, and will designate a project manager to discuss with customers for further design details.
APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) is a systematic approach to determine if customers are satisfied by evaluating the output and supporting continual improvement. It can prevent loss caused by late change and ensure to provide high quality products with low cost in time.
