By Valentina Lupo

We are thrilled to announce the release of the latest version of Teamcenter Quality software!

Accelerating consumer-driven innovation while applying quality management best practices

Teamcenter Quality software supports a closed-loop quality approach from design to manufacturing. Built on top of the Teamcenter software product lifecycle management (PLM) backbone, Teamcenter Quality helps you leverage product and process information, as well as share cross-departmental workflows so you can streamline the core quality management processes.

Teamcenter Quality works in the Active Workspace client (AWC) for Teamcenter. Active Workspace is an innovative web-based client platform that simplifies PLM for all users involved in product lifecycle, accelerating user adoption and shortening time-to-value by providing an intuitive experience anytime, anywhere, on any device.

Teamcenter Quality, which is part of the Siemens Xcelerator business platform of software, hardware and services , helps you support all of the quality-relevant processes required in the overall product lifecycle.

  • Leverage the new FMEA risk matrix and improvements for usability and industry guideline support. Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is a methodology that allows companies to assess risks associated with possible product failure. The Teamcenter Quality FMEA module helps you avoid defects by allowing you to evaluate the effects caused by potential problems early in the planning phase. The FMEA module supports several standards and guidelines. The latest version contains new elements and enhancement, mainly boosting the usability and industry guideline support. Among the many improvements, a new important element is the FMEA risk matrix, which should be used as an evaluation tool for the priorities for the design or process FMEA.
