A decisive factor for the success of a product and thus for the success of a company is product quality. Due to the increasing global competition, product quality is becoming more and more important. The tightening standards are creating additional pressure on the manufacturing industry.

At the same time, it is important to make company processes more efficient in order to keep development and production times as short as possible and to survive in the market. Especially the processes of quality management, which are often time-consuming and error-prone due to manual activities, require continuous optimization.

The reduction of quality costs and the avoidance of quality discrepancies in production have top priority in all industries. The prerequisite is better integration of the quality process, which is characterized by many system and media breaks.

Quality management with Teamcenter Quality

In order to continuously integrate quality management into the company processes and to use the optimization potentials, it is recommended to use a holistic quality management solution. Teamcenter Quality from Siemens Digital Industries Software Inc. is one of these systems. The basis is the Teamcenter Active Workspace Client, which is extended by various functions. The functions include Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA), control and inspection plans and problem solving.

Since Teamcenter Quality uses the same database as other Teamcenter applications, it can be seamlessly integrated into other areas of design and production planning. With the help of the end-to-end application of quality management, development processes are accelerated and teamwork is optimized.

Further advantages of an optimized quality management

Efficient processes

The holistic mapping of the process in the system increases efficiency in all areas of production.

Cost Reduction

The early detection and efficient correction of errors reduces error related costs.

Traceability

The consistent mapping of the quality management process ensures the traceability of the data.

Quality

Through stored standards, the quality and compliance requirements are completely fulfilled.

Quality management and change processes in manufacturing

Many quality requirements for the production are defined in the design. To be able to use these quality data throughout the process, it must be possible:

  • to extract them automatically from CAD models and drawings
  • to make them available to other departments or suppliers in CAD-neutral form
  • to manage and audit them with the support of a PLM system

This is where the BCT Inspector comes in, it automates the error-prone and time-consuming manual process of ballooning and extraction of features of a model / drawing. The add-on focuses especially on the traceability of changes and the creation of inspection reports based on the underlying industry standards.
