When our customers first come to us seeking an APQP software solution, they do so for a variety of reasons. In most cases they have become frustrated with the inconvenience of handling APQP document using the spreadsheet method or their existing software solution is out of date or too cumbersome. The inability to synchronize spreadsheet information across the pFMEA, Control Plan and Process Flow causes concern and is frequently an audit corrective action.
Extracting information from spreadsheets to create meaningful reports is also challenging and impinges on further analysis of FMEA studies. Managing consistent language and information across documents is tedious and tracking lessons learned can be impossible.
The great news is that QA Assistant Studio assists with all of these aspects. In fact, we've highlight the top 5 reasons companies use QA Assistant Studio to control their APQP documents:
