PLM and QMS software solutions help today’s sophisticated manufacturers get safe, high quality products to market fast. Both systems bring electrical, software, and mechanical designs together into a single source of truth. However, QMS systems also ensure strict compliance with Food and Drug Administration (FDA), International Organization for Standardization (ISO), European Medicines Agency (EMA), or other directives before medical device manufacturers, biotechnology companies, or other life sciences organizations can sell their products.
Arena was the first to introduce cloud-based SaaS solutions for PLM and, later, QMS. These solutions were purpose-built to help manufacturers in high-tech electronics, medical device, and other electronics-heavy industries develop and deliver innovative products by streamlining new product development (NPD) and new product introduction (NPI) processes between their internal teams and supply chain partners. In addition, Arena PLM and QMS simplify compliance to environmental, safety, ISO, FDA , U.S. export controls (e.g., ITAR, EAR), and EMA regulations.
