Advanced quality planning is important for all companies in the wind power industry. With the introduction of the APQP4Wind standard and its obligatory realization by all suppliers, the topic has become even more significant.

Many suppliers in the wind power industry are now faced with the challenge of having to manufacture their products within the scope of the APQP4Wind standard. But while wind power plant manufacturers have increased their product requirements, suppliers receive no additional money for their products. For that reason, support is needed from a suitable quality management software tool, such as QDA, which can offer support with standard compliance.
