Construction Quality Planning Guide, Draft for Consultation, Published by the Construction Innovation Hub in May 2020, defines Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) as: A quality framework used for developing new products. It was developed by the automotive industry but can be applied to any industry and is similar in many respects to the concept of design for six sigma.’

It suggests that Construction Quality Planning (CQP) is: 'An adaptation of Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) that is aimed at those enterprises that will feed construction with new componentry for offsite builds.'
