The new tool is aimed at global manufacturing operations. It includes enterprise quality management software and professional services that extend to the global shop floor, across the supply chain and up to executives. The application is vertically aligned, embracing company-wide quality planning, and is managed by dashboards and analytics. It creates corporate standards and quality processes and enforces them across locations and suppliers, within a “closed-loop” system that supports continuous improvement. The software provides complete track-and-trace capability, both for “as built” and “as maintained,” to aid in root-cause analyses and the initiation of preventive and corrective actions.
