Supplier Quality

Problem Statement

  • Failing inspection reports were submitted by a supplier as part of the PPAP documentation
  • The supplier thought this was acceptable since the weld fixture was inherited from the customer


  • Worked with the supplier to get tooling adjusted, so parts were producted to print specifications
    • Worked with supplier to help them better understand PPAP requirements & purpose
    • Worked with supplier to show them how the weld fixture was designed to be adjusted in certain areas
    • Supplier made appropriate adjustments to fixture & recorded new measurements
    • Worked with supplier to continue making changes to the fixture until all dimensions were to print for parts coming off of the fixture


  • Future product was to print
  • Passing inspection reports were submitted to the customer
