Aerospace and defense OEMs and suppliers are under pressure from customers, who are pitting them against each other in a competition to drive down costs, and to share the risks, and investments. At the same time, suppliers must meet all of a program’s technical and performance requirements at cost, on schedule and highest quality. This is driving them toward continuous improvement and innovation, made possible by consistent and integrated systems that support the zero-defect strategy through lessons learned loops in all fields.

Our closed-loop quality solution meets the requirements and needs of aerospace and defense industries, enabling companies to gain competitive advantages. We provide a best practice quality management system that enables organizations to safeguard compliance, optimize quality, reduce defect and rework costs, and achieve operational excellence by increasing process stability. The integrated process capabilities (control charts, statistics, and quality gates) can detect production errors to avoid further processing and shipment of nonconforming material. The benefits can be maximized when integrated with higher-level systems such as product lifecycle management (PLM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP).

Advanced Product Quality Planning

Streamline processes such as APQP, FMECA, and inspection planning. Guarantee data consistency and process efficiency by interfacing with PDM/ERP and CAD.

Build Quality

Automate data collection, organization and reporting to allow your quality teams to improve dimensional quality while reducing scrap, rework and production losses.

Closed-loop Part Quality Control

Reduce inspection programming time using the product and manufacturing information (PMI) associated with the CAD model. Create machine instructions in DMIS (dimensional measuring interface standard) or machine-specific formats.

Continuous Quality Improvement

Create customer-specific asset inspection reports with characteristics from various manufacturing processes along with documentation. Enable complaint acquisition, analysis and evaluation for timely processing.

Dimensional Quality

Analyze the impact of manufacturing processes on design features and tolerances. Improve design quality and eliminate costly prototypes while reducing labor, tooling and metrology costs.

Issue Management & FRACAS

Capture complaints, defects and non-conformances across your entire organization simply by including your enterprise quality teams within your product lifecycle management (PLM) system.

Quality Management in Production

Ensure incoming goods control and assess suppliers for asset quality and delivery reliability. Document and analyze asset inspections carried out during production.

Quality Operations Management

Enable workflow-based inspections for first articles using configurable and extendable data collection forms with real-time notifications. Enforce additional quality checks, and ensure compliance with regulations.
