Stature Quality Lifecycle Management solution helps companies reduce the
cost of poor quality
TORONTO, June 21 /CNW/ -- Dyadem today announced an enterprise solution
that helps manufacturers increase competitive advantage by managing quality
throughout the lifecycle of a product. Stature is an enterprise Quality
Lifecycle Management (QLM) software solution that allows stakeholders from
design to manufacturing to collaborate in real-time and improve quality,
compliance, and communication across a global manufacturing enterprise. By
automating processes, Stature helps companies reduce the cost of poor quality
and proactively improve the design, manufacture and delivery of high-quality,
high-value products and processes.
Across industries such as automotive, electronics and medical devices,
companies are challenged to bring to market high quality products on time and
under budget. As companies move to global manufacturing models, it is
essential to have a solution in place that ensures communication and knowledge
sharing across departments.
"Our partnership with Dyadem has grown from several users to more than a
thousand users across the globe," said Gary J. Matula, CIO, Molex, Inc. "We
have extended the FMEA-Pro7 implementation to support product engineering,
manufacturing and quality across multiple languages in our global product
design process. We believe that Stature is the next step in helping us build a
shared and secure global knowledge database that will expand the Dyadem
functionality and help us further improve our product development process."
As organizations are tasked to comply with a multitude of quality
standards such as International Standards Organization's ISO 9001 and ISO
14971, Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) and Six Sigma, they realize
the importance of building quality into their processes and sharing
information across the lifecycle. Stature enables companies to automate
compliance processes, which in turn allows manufacturers to reduce the time
they spend on compliance and improve quality through the removal of manual
Quality planning early in the product lifecycle, better sharing of
knowledge across business units, and the collection and application of lessons
learned enables companies to overcome these obstacles, and improve
profitability by delivering high value, reliable products. Manufacturers can
drive down costs with improved quality from Dyadem's Stature solution.
"The cost of poor quality can be as much as 15 to 30 percent of revenues
for a global manufacturer, yet until now the quality processes around getting
a product to market have never been fully addressed in Product Lifecycle
Management (PLM)," said Kevin North, president & CEO, Dyadem International.
"In highly competitive industries and with a global supply chain, addressing
quality from the design stage is imperative. We're able to help teams of
several hundred employees collaborate and share knowledge in real time, across
To address the challenge of relaying information across teams in a global
setting, Stature offers companies a common vocabulary for requirements,
functions, and failures that allows organizations to automate best practices
in a format that is easily and directly accessible to users on a current
project and for subsequent development cycles. These common standards enable
companies to create consistent quality specifications across their
organization and construct a cycle of continuous improvement.
"High quality relies directly on the manufacture of a product in
conformance to design specifications, which is directly linked to product
design and engineering, manufacturing engineering, assembly, and test, and
customer management," said Simon Jacobson of industry analyst firm AMR
Research. "Despite this, many manufacturers continue to treat manufacturing
quality apart from their core business processes, making it difficult to
achieve real-time visibility into manufacturing costs and product performance
actuals." (AMR Research: "Quality Management, Part I: One Team, One Set of
Metrics," October 25, 2005)
Stature's common vocabulary enables engineering and manufacturing to
align their communication and business processes by ensuring everyone is
talking the same language. Across silos where traditional processes have
limited knowledge sharing, departments can file corrective and preventive
actions against the same functions, failures and effects used throughout the
organization, allowing previously unstructured and hard-to-relate data to be
clearly and cleanly linked.
Stature is available immediately for enterprises of 50 seats or more.
Pricing is dependent upon number of users. For more information about
