APQP 3rd Edition: This updated manual addresses how to improve successful new product launches with revisions to reflect agile product management and new sections on sourcing, change management, APQP program metrics, risk assessment mitigation plans, and gated management. Further revisions include new information on part traceability, various checklists, and examples of common analytical techniques used during the APQP process.

Control Plan 1st Edition: Clarifying various requirements and providing additional guidance, this standalone manual offers further explanation on linkages to APQP processes, best practices for effectively using control plans, and revised examples, tables, forms, and checklists.
