It provides automated management of inspection plans for each operation of business processes, with complete revision control and change history. Collect data against these operations and chart results for controlling these processes and achieving continuous improvement.
These integrated productivity tools strengthen the management of all preventative and reactive equipment maintenance activities. This solution maintains accurate online records of all maintenance work order and calibration activities.
AQM product launch defines, automates and documents the critical aspects of your product launch process to assure engineering design information is translated effectively throughout the pre-production process. Advanced product quality planning (APQP) management enables you to synchronize all key processes and activities through the creation of templates, project plans and checklists that manage all details of the launch process. The solution also manages the quality of parts through a series of highly controlled submission warrants, checklists and approval routings, as required by industry-specific quality methodologies, including production part approval process (PPAP), initial sample inspection report (ISIR), and First Article. All part specifications and modifications are documented and communicated to promote error-free production runs.
