The complexities of dispersed teams, disconnected systems, and a changing regulatory environment create roadblocks to delivering high-quality products. PTC integrates quality management into the PLM process. This enables better management of quality, reliability, and risk through every stage of the product lifecycle.
Product innovation requires speed, agility, and compliance. This is only made possible when product development processes are streamlined and all stakeholders have access to the most accurate data. PTC’s quality management software addresses both. It creates data governance and traceability built from a single source of real-time information accessible to all stakeholders.
Changes to requirements and non-conformances become connected and automated, enabling engineers to solve CAPAs faster and produce higher quality designs. These efficiencies ultimately result in higher first-pass yields and lower percentages of scrap, rework, line, and field failures. This drives down the cost of poor quality and improves customer satisfaction.
PTC takes a holistic approach to quality across the organization from ideation to field service. Highly configurable, out-of-the-box workflows are associated with products and parts for a complete design master record (DMR) and design history file (DHF). Change and configuration management, requirements and test management, CAPAs, non-conformances, customer experience management (CEM), audit, document control, failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA), fault tree analysis (FTA), critical to quality (CTQ), and risk-based design (RDB), are centrally stored and aligned with engineering, manufacturing, and service bills of materials and process plans. By combining PLM and quality management into a single platform, PTC helps organizations of all sizes accelerate the delivery of high-quality products.
Unify your engineering, quality, and regulatory teams by introducing best practice change, document, and design control processes.
Change and configuration management: Communicate changes, requirements, test procedures, and manufacturing controls to downstream teams
Document control: With integral training tracking
Closed-loop feedback: Collect product failure and performance data from testing, manufacturing, field/IoT for root cause analysis and feedback to design
Audit: Perform internal and supplier audits to ensure that key corporate processes, requirements, and directives are being followed
MBD & MBE: Visibility into model based detailed design data to identify CTQ for development of validation and manufacturing control plans
CAPAs, SCARS, and change requests: Initiate, evaluate, assign, monitor, review, and approve CAPAs arising from internal or external non-conformances
Customer experience management: Capture all customer feedback, including customer complaints
Digital product traceability: Standard OSLC, supports certification and qualification ISO26262, DO-178, etc.
Non-conformances, deviations, waivers: Intake, evaluate, resolve, and track product and process nonconformance with integrated change management
Risk and reliability: FMEA with direct connection of DFMEA to BOM, Weibull life data analysis, fault tree analysis, risk-based design, prediction, and critical to quality
Standards and compliance: ISO9000, Six Sigma, APQP, CMMI, and medical device standards like FDA 21 CFR Part 820
Medical device applicability: Pre-configured ISO 13485 processes
Real-time connectivity: Remote monitoring of field products leveraging IoT
