The Importance of APQP/CP in the Supply Chain Webinar (April 25): Featuring Plexus International's Jeremy Hazel, this one-hour webinar will focus on the importance of applying APQP and Control Plan methodologies throughout the supply chain and how the new editions can help you achieve even greater benefits. While sub-tier suppliers play a vital part in the success of any new product development activity, they are frequently left out of APQP projects until it’s too late for them to have a significant impact. In this webinar, we will review the “why” and “how” of involving the supply base in APQP, with additional focus on Control Plan 1st Edition so you get the “big picture” strategy from APQP along with sound, detailed information at the control plan level.
