Quality and compliance practices today are reactive to issues. Quality management is often a separate function that establishes processes for planning and assurance, control and improvement.
While a closed loop process improves quality, it provides only incremental gains and still relies on the end customer to report issues. Effective quality management is a pervasive, holistic, enterprise-wide endeavor — it must become total. The solution is a single innovation platform to predict, manage and meet the challenges of product development - empowering manufacturers to design in quality and compliance from the start.
