Arena Solutions, a cloud-based product lifecycle management (PLM) applications provider, unveiled Arena Quality for quality management. This platform allows for engineering and manufacturing teams to effectively collaborate through the quality check process, the company states.
Arena Quality is embedded in the product record, capturing all quality processes and enabling customers to always be audit ready. Several capabilities include:
- Create and customize templates: The application provides complete control over phases, attributes and terminology so users can reflect their organization’s quality process.
- Assign work, collaborate: Arena Quality can help assign responsibility at multiple levels, manage schedules and track progress. Email notifications are displayed on the dashboard, and quality processes are in a visible product record.
- Explicit phase closure: This feature also comes with 21 CFR Part 11 compliant electronic signature, so staff can simply use digital copies for forms.
- Persistent history: A complete history of quality processes, down to field level edits is available.
“We know our customers have teams who are dedicated to constantly drive for continuous improvement in the design, manufacturing and logistical processes,” said Steve Chalgren, Arena’s vice president of product management and strategy. “With this new solution, Arena makes quality a visible and integrated part of the product design and delivery process, enabling the quality teams to bring everyone together to identify and solve problems.”
Arena Quality will become available later this month.
