SILVA, Carlos Eduardo Sanches da et al. Application of risk management in the product development process of auto parts companies. Prod. [online]. 2010, vol.20, n.2, pp.200-213.  Epub Apr 30, 2010. ISSN 0103-6513.

This research analyzes the incorporation of risk management in the product development process (PDP) in auto parts companies, based on Advanced Product and Quality Planning (APQP), and emphasizes the delivery of project development proposed by the Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) and conducts a review of the literature, establishing the theoretical foundations for its development. The research method used was action research, where data were collected through documentary analysis, interviews and researchers' observations. The incorporation of risk management contributes to the PDP-making processes, especially in the stages of qualitative risk analysis and planning of responses to risk, providing greater accuracy of the time and identification of critical activities. The factors that emerged as most important for guaranteeing the accuracy of the results are: team building; collective discussion of deadlines set, resulting in commitment; the role of project manager, providing feedback from the participants; the existence of objective evidence in support of senior management. It follows that team-building impacts on risk management, as in the perceived risk to ongoing education.
