A discussion about lessons learned about how companies are trying to manage the Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), including ERP, QMS, PLM, Supplier Portals, Project Management, emails and spreadsheets.
"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."
- Why isn't my PLM effective
- Why Supplier Portals that simply upload spreadsheets are a risk
- Why project management tools that have added simple, generic FMEA, Process Flows, Controls Plans, etc. are ineffective
Without understanding what your people need, how the process works, the software will fail.
This will include advice on how to get your project funded.
