Why CQ Product Design Management

CQ Product Design Management Solution helps companies implement a comprehensive design development process that mitigates product risks and leads to higher quality products all the while ensuring compliance to quality and regulatory standards.

It offers engineering teams complete visibility over the design process and 100% traceability over design controls to make sure nothing falls through the cracks. With a unified repository for all design documentation and advanced collaboration tools, engineering and quality teams can easily work together and bring quality products to market faster and with confidence.

Challenge

Murphy’s Law: “If anything can go wrong, it will.”

The development of new products is complex, can take years of effort and millions of dollars. On top of that, one seemingly small problem can lead to catastrophic product system failure.

Implementing a comprehensive development process that accounts for every part, requirement, design input, user need, and product risk, can be both challenging and time-consuming.

Compliant design development requires extensive documentation which can inhibit efficiencies, leading to delays or non-compliances. One minor change can lead to a series of changes, tests, reviews, validations and verifications. For teams using spreadsheets or disparate systems, keeping track and documenting all these changes or updates can stand in the way of innovation.

Without a unified repository for design information, teams will lack the visibility and traceability needed to design high quality products that meet regulatory and quality standards.

Slower Time-to-Market

  • Inefficient processes leading to longer development times
  • Lost time due to scrap, waste, and rework
  • Slow to implement changes and updates due to lack of visibility
  • Missed delivery timelines

Risk of Non-Compliance

  • Manual processes leading to increased human error
  • Improper change implementation and documentation
  • Overwhelming documentation leading to missed approvals or revisions
  • Not getting regulatory approval leading to delay in entry to market

Lower Quality Products

  • Missed requirements due to lack of traceability
  • Inability to identify and manage product related risks
  • Scattered product data leading to lack of visibility and coordination
  • Increased recalls and returns
  • Focus on documentation and compliance leading to less innovation

Increased Development Costs

  • Increased development cycle times leading to more costs
  • Cost of error and delays in manufacturing due to low design quality
  • Cost of recalls and product returns
  • Slow time to market leading to missed profits
