|Co-innovation by Geometric & Siemens PLM to reduce Cost of Quality|
|In an intensifying competitive market driven by constant demands for improved program quality and costs, manufacturers are striving to achieve lean operations as well as first-time-right. On the other hand product design and supporting functions are getting more complex, any changes identified late in the product development escalates cost. Also recurrence of same defects across different products are resulting into heavy penalties in the form of warranties and recalls.
Teamcenter CAPA (Corrective and Preventive Actions), a co-innovation by Geometric and Siemens PLM is an enterprise-wide product quality management solution that captures various forms of defects, non-conformances or complaints at any stage of product development.
The solution focuses on improving the efficiency in quality through standardizing and automating the issue resolution process and more importantly by capturing the knowledge within the PLM environment helping remove the barriers between quality department and other teams; bringing quality into mainstream product and manufacturing engineering.
