Every part poses a certain amount of risk. Nearly all AMFAS supplied parts must undergo a production part approval process, commonly referred to as PPAP. The production part approval process is a standard used to formally reduce risks prior to product or service release. There are two main purposes of this risk analysis. First, PPAP provides evidence to our customers that their engineering design record and specification requirements are properly understood by all of the relevant parties in the chain of supply. Second, PPAP demonstrates that the manufacturing process has the potential to produce a product that consistently meets all requirements during an actual production run at a quoted production rate. This assessment is beneficial in its helpfulness to maintain product (design) and process (manufacturing) integrity of parts. Risks are identified early in the development process so they can be understood prior to locking down for production. It reduces the cost of post certification. AMFAS' risk evaluation improves the overall quality of the product and customer satisfaction. Our production part approval process improves development speed-to-market giving AMFAS' customers an advantage in the market place.
AMFAS mitigates the risk to our customers choosing to do business with global suppliers. We coordinate all aspects of the business agreement to supply product or processes to our customers. We maintain both Liability and Property Insurance for all agreements. This is not a common business practice for many overseas manufacturers and is often overlooked.
