Why Do You Need Quality Management Software?
Companies are challenged to reduce product and operating costs while improving quality to distinguish their products and gain a competitive advantage.
Every effort must be made to improve efficiencies among teams that can be distributed across the globe. Teamcenter software for product lifecycle management includes Teamcenter Quality, a software product family that works seamlessly with several domains on the Teamcenter collaboration platform. Leveraging additional elements of the Teamcenter portfolio, Teamcenter Quality provides a closed-loop approach from design to manufacturing on the shop floor and back.
A new product begins its lifecycle as a requirement. Using modern methods of product development, it evolves to a system, then a logical structure until becoming a virtual product. Using advanced product quality planning (APQP) and the production part approval process (PPAP), companies can monitor and approve project quality through respective milestones. The Teamcenter Quality Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) software provide tools to identify and mitigate risk in the virtual product and process structures.
Teamcenter Quality Control Planning and Inspection software help to extend quality management to engineering and manufacturing domains. With the software, companies can create inspection plans for checking critical characteristics on physical products. Any product deviations are recorded in a nonconformance and resolved through Teamcenter Quality Problem Solving software with effective root cause analysis methods. The common change management feature distributes the changes to all stakeholders in the loop, so that the product development process continuously improves, reducing time to market of new products and total cost of quality of existing products.
Teamcenter Quality Updates
Teamcenter Quality aims to boost the operational excellence with native quality management aspects in NX, Teamcenter, and Opcenter Execution Platforms integrated with our common Closed Loop Manufacturing approach for Industry 4.0. Teamcenter Quality product family is a set of features native on Teamcenter Active Workspace client. Sharing the same database with other Teamcenter applications, Teamcenter Quality has the capability to integrate seamlessly to other areas of Design Engineering and Manufacturing Planning.
This new extension to the Teamcenter portfolio allows engineers to set quality requirements early in the design process and establish the parameters required to help ensure the product realized during the production phase will meet the necessary quality standards.
