APQP PPAP FMEA Software - AQuA Pro

AQuA Pro Software

AQuA Pro is user-friendly software that integrates FMEA into APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning), PPAP (Production Part Approval Process), and connects to Process Flow and Control Plan. It simplifies and documents the product development process while complying with industry standards.

Introduction to AQuA Pro

A web-based database management application, it assists in creating, maintaining, analyzing, and organizing your documents. This tool helps you to develop your documents step-by-step to document for the APQP process. It was first introduced in 1985 and has continually evolved. Today, you can customize it to fit your preferred format. It serves as a valuable tool in optimizing your processes.

The APQP process helps you develop your documents from design to manufacturing. You will work with the Part of Families and V-model, enabling you to reuse process information, identify functions & requirements, and analyze Failure-Cause-Effect relationship in the BOM (Bill of Material).

AQuA Pro software is compliant with the following standards:

AQuA Pro is an integrated, web-based database management application designed for Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), and Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA). It helps automate and document the product development process while complying with industry standards.

AQuA helps automate documents for the product development process while ensuring compliance with industry standards. AQuA Pro provides you with consistent, accurate, and repeatable product development processes linked to manufacturing. It integrates APQP, FMEA, and PPAP, making the transition from concept to delivery while upholding quality standards more seamless.

AQuA Pro supports multiple customer formats and standard formats including AIAG 4th Edition, AIAG VDA 1st Edition, and SAE J1739.

Yes, AQuA Pro offers a fully integrated solution with a Business Intelligence platform. This platform provides visual analysis and reporting, allowing organizations to gain valuable insights from their APQP, FMEA, and PPAP data.

PPAP ensures that suppliers meet the required quality standards for delivering parts. AQuA Pro supports PPAP development by automating the creation and maintenance of documentation, streamling the approval process, and maintaining revision control. In addition to DFMEA, DVP&R, Process Flows, PFMEA, Control Plan, PPAP documents include Dimensional results, Material Results, and Performance Test Results. AQuA Pro also includes FAI Forms like AS 9102 Form1, AS 9102 Form2, and AS 9102 Form 3.

AQuA Pro links all the related Design and Process Documents, ensuring consistency between them. AQuA Pro can reuse Design and Process information across Family, Sub-Families, and Parts/components. AQuA Pro supports Single Point Fault (SPF) and Multipoint Fault (MPF) for Mechatronics Products.

AQuA Pro integrates with the NPD/APQP Platform, allowing all APQP deliverables to be managed and tracked with resources and time. FMEA and Problem Solving (8D) have bi-directional linkages, and there are additional linkages like MSA, Functional Safety, Requirements Management, FTA, and more.
