General Motors Sets New Standard for Quality in Automotive Industry

    Partners with Dyadem to Deploy Stature Quality Lifecycle Management
    Global Platform

    TORONTO, June 10 /CNW/ -- Dyadem today announced that General Motors has
selected Dyadem's Stature platform to manage quality across its engineering
and manufacturing divisions globally.  Dyadem is a leader in Quality and Risk
Lifecycle Management.
    Stature will allow GM to leverage a common DFMEA and PFMEA framework. The
Stature QLM solution helps companies dramatically improve quality by
proactively improving designs based on lessons learned and reducing the
communication gap between departments and organizations.
    "We wanted to take our quality FMEAs to a new level and Dyadem's unique
approach was exactly what we needed.  Dyadem understands that quality needs to
be managed at an enterprise level.  Dyadem has an excellent intuitive
Web-based platform that our entire company could standardize on," said Kirk
Gutmann, Global Information Officer, GM Manufacturing & Quality Information
Systems & Services.
    Stature enables GM to conduct quality planning via a Web-based platform
that uses a common library across all divisions and all regions, allowing
better visibility into quality and the incorporation of updates made in
manufacturing back into design.  Global manufacturing models require a Quality
solution that ensures communication and knowledge sharing across departments,
divisions and geographies.
    "GM understands the importance of addressing quality planning through a
global approach.  Many companies attempt to correct design issues at the
manufacturing stage but fail to fully integrate quality throughout the product
lifecycle.  GM is leading the way by unifying its entire global engineering
and manufacturing community on the Stature platform, giving them a shared
quality specification that can be managed from product concept through product
retirement," said Kevin North, President and CEO, Dyadem.
