Quality

Design in product and process quality

In order to stay competitive, today’s manufacturers need to design more innovative products faster and more cheaply without compromising quality. But growing product complexity makes managing every aspect of quality throughout the product lifecycle challenging for many companies. Often times they consider product quality, reliability, risk management, and process quality as separate, disjoint activities taking place across multiple, disconnected systems, which only exacerbates the problem.
 
The PTC Global Quality solution offers a unified, enterprise-wide approach to designing-in product and process quality by providing a single source of truth for product and quality data. This connects product development and quality activities, moving quality analysis earlier in the product lifecycle, and integrating quality analysis and feedback efficiently with other product lifecycle activities to better realize designed-in quality in the finished product.
 
Through complete visibility into early quality analysis and planning, quality plans are automatically communicated to test, manufacture, and fielded use.
 
And when quality issues do occur, feedback is gathered centrally to close the loop on quality issues, identify corrective/preventive actions, and reuse these lessons to improve current and future products and processes.
 
The PTC Global Quality solution connects quality analysis and planning with the fundamental product development processes that will deliver high-quality products. With this holistic, end-to-end view of quality management, the PTC Global Quality solution is helping companies deliver high-quality products more efficiently, while maintaining their competitive edge by keeping costs low and productivity high, enabling innovation and enhancing both performance and consumer demand.

Designed-in product and process quality

Quality, reliability, and safety are integral to product development. But many companies address quality using disconnected processes with inadequate cross-functional communication. This limits insight into quality throughout a product’s lifecycle and hinders quality-critical decisions.
 
Reduce the cost of quality by up to 3X by switching from correction to prevention1.
 
Increase operating margin 25% and reduce failure costs 29% with integrated PLM and quality tools2.
 
Reduce COPQ to increase earnings 10 of 15% with consistent, integrated quality best practices3.
