Quality processes are directly connected to the product record in Arena PLM, which provides everyone with complete visibility into quality issues. Engineering, operations and the supply chain can fully participate in problem resolution and learn from experience to drive continuous improvement. And because Arena Quality captures all quality processes in an easily navigated history, customers will always be audit ready for ISO (International Organization for Standardization), FDA and other organizations.
“The new quality module looks like a great tool,” said Julie Stringham, document control manager at Pulsar Vascular, an endovascular medical device company. “Finally, we’ll have a solution that can make all quality issues visible to the entire company, which is difficult in our current paper-based system.”
Capabilities of Arena Quality include:
“We succeed when our customers succeed, and there are few things more important to our customers’ success than producing a high quality product,” said Steve Chalgren, Arena Solutions’ vice president of product management and strategy. “Because we’ve made quality a visible and integrated part of the product design and delivery process, everyone in the organization can work together to identify and solve problems quickly.”
