Optimize control and inspection processes leveraging comprehensive quality planning

Estimated Watching Time: 46 minutes


Quality engineers discussing quality planning in a manufacturing setting

Product and process complexity continues to grow in importance for many businesses today, influencing new business models. Manufacturers must redefine roles for PLM (product lifecycle management), and QMS (quality management system) must expand beyond the traditional paradigm. QMS best practices need to be applied across the entire product lifecycle.

It becomes fundamental to leverage engineering-related data into account when creating control and inspection plans for comprehensive quality planning.

Design for quality and product excellence

Control and inspection planning contains the process steps and activities to handle critical elements during manufacturing processes. This is where potential risks, while not completely mitigated, can be controlled systematically to identify defective parts.

In this webinar, we will focus on the creation of a control plan taking the process, as well as the design-driven characteristics, into account. The automated identification of characteristics from the design enables continuous processes to improve quality assurance. The execution of inspections on the shop floor and the collection of this information can give insight into the possibilities of closed-loop quality allowing you to design for both quality and product excellence.

Importance of quality planning

Join our webinar to learn how core quality processes can leverage and interact with product design and 3D data using a common change management process.

We will explore:

  • Steps to support your ability to use consistent quality planning processes
  • How to integrate quality best practices in the early stages of development of a new product/process
  • Why a collaborative platform enables manufacturers to realize the greatest benefit of designing for quality and product excellence

Register now for this webinar to discover the importance of quality planning and how QMS best practices can be applied across the entire product lifecycle
