Complete Traceability of Product Requirements

Keeping track of all design inputs, requirements, and outputs can be challenging and time-consuming, yet it is vital for high quality product development.

CQ’s Product Design Management solution provides your team with a living Requirements Traceability Matrix (RTM) file that is always up to date. CQ’s RTM offers 100% visibility over links between user requirements, design inputs, outputs, validations, and verifications.

Identify and Control All Product Related Risks

There are many inherent risks in product development. It is a real challenge for teams to assess, identify and mitigate all the risks involved, especially if relying on spreadsheets or papers.

With embedded product risk management, you can assess and document all product related risks and link them to specific parts or requirements, then document and implement the appropriate risk controls along with residual risk assessment for full compliance. With CQ’s Product Risk solution you can also add hierarchical codes to risks to make sure your organization’s hierarchical system for risk is being followed during product design for a complete risk management approach.

Impact of Living Records on the Design Process

Single Source of Truth

All departments involved must be able to easily access shared records, not only engineering teams, but quality and regulatory teams as well.

CQ offers your teams a unified repository for all requirements and risks making them easily accessible to all members. Both RTM and Product Risk files are easy to edit, with filters and easy cut/paste and clone options for a simple interface. You can even bring in product data from other sources (ERP, Jira..) and keep your quality and engineering teams in sync, with a complete document stack.

Always Up to Date

Requirements are subject to change throughout the product design lifecycle. That’s why it is vital for engineering and quality teams to have access to the latest inputs, validations and verifications.

In addition to serving as a single source of truth for all teams, CQ’s RTM and Product Risks documents are living documents that are always up to date. Changes in requirements are instantly flagged to make sure that no step is missed and that all regulatory and quality standards are met.

Powerful, complete eQMS

We conducted a thorough, comparative review of systems within our budget and CQ was a clear winner. The system is powerful and versatile, even with an out of box implementation. The functionality is complete, covering every significant aspect of a quality system. Validation is straightforward with the use of OQ scripts from CQ, which can be modified to fit your implementation. It ensures that processes implemented through the system and records generated by the system are compliant for medical device companies. But, the biggest benefit we’ve received is through the collaborative partnership with CQ personnel. They listen and understand our needs. They are creative in helping us make implementation as easy as possible. Having been in large companies and small, I can see this system fitting in either environment and budget.
