1factory Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) software

Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) Software

Create and manage Internal and Supplier PPAPs. Generate Control Plans, PFMEAs and Process Flow Diagrams, in minutes. Run Process Capability and Gage R&R studies with fully automated calculations. Collect and manage all PPAP documents including Initial Sample Reports, Material Certs, PSWs and more.

SAVE HOURS OF PPAP PREPARATION TIME

SPEED UP PPAP CREATION

“I've gotten PPAP creation time down to 40 minutes, where it used to take me a whole day."

G. Taylor, Mfg. Engineer, R.E. Thompson

SIMPLIFY PPAP CREATION. SAVE HOURS OF TIME.

Control Plans

Balloon your drawing, and extract features to a Control Plan with just a few clicks. Assign Inspection Methods, Sampling Rules, and Reaction Plans to a single parameter or a group of parameters. Output Control Plan in AIAG/APQP standard format with a single click.

Process FMEA (PFMEA)

Build a library of Failure Modes by Process (e.g. Mill-Turn, Swiss Screw, Grinding, Plating, Deburring etc.). Automatically populate the Failure Modes, Effects, Severity, Causes, Controls, Detection, and RPN fields. Output a part-number-specific PFMEA in AIAG/APQP format with a single-click.

Process Flow Diagram

Quickly link production Sequence Numbers with Process Types. Output a Process FLow Diagram showing Sequence Numbers (10, 20 ...), Process (e.g. Mill-Turn, Swiss Screw, Grinding, Plating, Deburring etc.), Process Type (Fabrication, Inspection, Movement...) and approved Machine IDs.

Inspection Data & Certs

Link Dimensional and Functional Inspection Records from within the 1factory system with a single click. View run charts and histograms to review production data and analyze trends. Attach and manage raw material and outside processing (plating, anodization, passivation ...) certs.

Process Capability Reports

Enjoy fully automated Process Capability (Cp, Cpk) and Process Performance (Pp, Ppk) analysis. Simply capture your inspection data, and 1factory will automatically calculate your Process Capability metrics.

Gage R&R

Set up Gage R&R studies. Ensure gages are able to adequately detect part variation, and are repeatable (equipment variation) and reproducible (operator variation). Output data in AIAG format or ANOVA format.

Supplier PPAP Log

Assign PPAPs to one or more supplier per part and notify suppliers. Define levels and required documents by level. Receive PPAPs from suppliers within 1factory. Review and approve individual requirements and notify suppliers of status change.

Customer PPAP Log

Assemble the various PPAP elements - Process Flow, Control Plan, PFMEA, Measurement Data, Certs, Gage R&R etc. - from various departments (engineering, manufacturing, quality control etc.) into a PPAP package for delivery to a customer.

Tasks & Approvals

Assign Tasks to team members from engineering, manufacturing, supply chain, quality control and other teams. Ensure task completion with reminders and an easy-to-use dashboard.
