5 Stages of advanced product quality planning (APQP) with miles stones for project of new models or parts developments 

1. Planning: define the voice of customer, voice of process, profit of business (VOC/VOP/POB) through quality function deployment (QFD)

2. Product design and development: deploy the product block and diagram for Design Failures Modes and Effect Analysis (DFMEA). The control plan for prototype should be initiated. 

3. Process design and development: define PFMEA for manufacturing and control plan for pre-launch

4. Product and process validation: the PPAP file is collective documentation and records through product and process audit.

5. Production the mass production can be done if customer(s) approve PPAP files

6. End APQP and get feedback assessment and corrective action. First point of lesion initiates for further projects.
