Product Development is the birthplace of product information and also the place to control the values of names, attributes and other standards. Once it´s time for release another gate must pass and we need to ensure good quality of documentation.
For the control part we have developed PDS QA-Checker. This tool can be implemented into Windchill PDMLink as part of a workflow or a built in button and will control all data in a complete structure as well as help ensuring data quality before a product release.
When transferring data to ERP it is important to control the data validity in order to avoid errors with regards to:
- Production according to drawings
- Incomplete information
- Rework and change
QA Checker is a tool, enabling control of data to:
- Secure and validate information
- Discover problems early in the process
- Assist and guide users
- Stop incorrect data from reaching consumers
