Project Management


APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) is a standardized method of product and quality advance planning. It corresponds mainly to the standards TS 16949 and VDA 6.1.

ZF conducts its APQP process via the SupplyOn Project Management (ProMa) service, a web-based program and project management application. It enables development projects to be implemented according to the APQP method in collaboration between ZF and our suppliers.


Use of SupplyOn Project Management (eAPQP) provides both ZF and suppliers with a number of benefits…

  • Reduction of manual workflows for both ZF and our suppliers
  • Automation of escalation and deadline monitoring
  • Early identification of potential delays
  • Maximized visibility through standardized and documented communication
