Q ?


Advance Product Quality Planning is a structured method of
defining and establishing the steps necessary to assure that a product satisfies the customer.



The goal of product quality planning is to facilitate
communication with everyone involved to assure that all
required steps are completed on time.



Effective product quality planning depends on a company’s top management commitment to the effort required in achieving
customer satisfaction.

The opportunity costs of being late to market are very high.



Cross-functional teams typically provide a better quality solution to complex dynamic product development problems than
single individuals.



Early simultaneous involvement in product development by
cross-functional teams using structured development process saves time and money over the product life cycle.
