Project- and Process Management

Project and Development Competence
at the highest Level

Well-developed Project and Process Management Skills in the Manufacture of Connectors for the Automotive Industry

Project Management according to IATF and Process Safety

Our experienced employees are your partners from the idea stage to the finished product and will provide you with active support and extensive expertise from project definition to project implementation right through until the project is complete. We channel our knowledge and experience into the advice and support we provide regarding product development. Above all, our development expertise in press-fit technology offers unparalleled added value to customers who have had little or no previous experience with press-fit technology. We see ourselves as your partner who works with you to optimize your sophisticated connectors.

Short distances and in-house expertise enable swift communication and implementation. We recognize risks early on and minimize them. We are committed to the zero-defect target as specified by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF). We implement our project goals at the required quality, by the agreed deadlines, and within the defined budget. To achieve this consistently, we have a highly professional and well-developed project management that meets the specifications of IATF 16949 (APQP). As a supplier, we strive to deliver your desired result consistently and competitively.

You can rely on the following with connectors from ept

  • Competent project managers
  • Support with technical expertise
  • Adherence to deadlines and quality expectations
  • Structured working method and standardized processes

What is APQP?

Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) means that the focus on product quality starts during definition and product development. It is a structured procedure used to plan the quality of the product in advance and to exclude the possibility of defects later during production.

The aim: Recognize necessary changes during development, avoid defects, and reliably meet customer requirements before the product goes into series production.

Safe Processes in the Manufacture of Connectors for the Automotive Industry

Quality and safe processes are top priorities at ept. Our continuous project management (APQP) for product and quality planning is anchored throughout the entire product creation process. We pay the utmost attention to risk minimization and quality right from the beginning of the cooperation – no matter whether feasibility analysis, production of operating equipment, or prototyping. We work using an FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis), factoring in your specifications and our experience, to ensure defects are prevented from an early stage.

Our Customers Appreciate:

Our reliability, adherence to delivery dates, and the consistent quality of our connectors.
We guarantee this through quality inspections during series production, based on the results of the FMEA, and through safe and proficient processes. Should a defect occur nevertheless, a comprehensive defect analysis is carried out using the latest methods and the systematic introduction of countermeasures.

What is the cpk Value?

The parameters cpk and ppk, along with the machine capability cmk, describe the ability to achieve a desired result. The cpk value is the most important parameter for describing the proficiency of processes: it contains information about the spread width as well as the relative position with respect to the tolerance limit(s).

This is what you can rely on with connectors from ept
