IBS QSM Professional modules are designed to streamline processes in the areas of product development, manufacturing, test and acceptance – on the basis of innovative web technologies. Practical use by IBS customers unleashes enormous saving potentials.
IBS QMS: Product Creation phase Quality Management
In terms of quality, significant process optimizations is carried out in the product planning, development and construction phase.
The product creation phase, which incorporates the system build-up and development configuration, prototype and production phases, is described in the APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) reference handbook.
Advanced product quality planning comes into play in the planning, product design & development, process design & development, product and process validation and series production phases, as well as in feedback, assessments and corrective measures. With consistent use, development processes can be accelerated and teamwork optimized.
IBS QMS: Quality Management Product Manufacturing
A perfectly planned product requires procurement and production processes in order to achieve the desired quality. Irrespective of whether they supply raw materials, components or complex assemblies, suppliers must be monitored to ensure they adhere to supplier agreements.
Process optimization in the production process means production preparation and production support, as an integral part of product manufacturing. KPIs are used to evaluate the processes. This includes figures such as ppm rates, Cpk values and defect pareto analyses. The track and trace of all quality data ensures the complete documentation of a product’s quality history.
IBS QMS: Product-in-use phase Quality Management
product. From a quality point of view, Product-in-Use support is mainly carried out within the scope of customer management. This incorporates consulting, for effective product application and customer support in the event of quality problems.
The exchange of information between customers and suppliers is a major source of input in the product design process. The optimization and improvement of product and process quality are supported by current and future developments in terms of Lessons Learned.
Today’s use of quality systems is shifting increasingly over to the product design phase. Practical experience has shown that, in the future, computer-aided QM systems will mainly be seen in the areas of product planning, product development and product construction.
QS 9000, VDA and TS 16949 requirements prescribe the use of a quality management system in the product development phase, for the full documentation and analysis of all relevant quality data.
