Developed through a recent strategic partnership between cSHARE and IQS, the new data integration technology allows manufacturers to export specifications, product characteristic and attribute data directly from the engineering/product development process into the quality system for inspection planning and characteristic accountability.
This solution represents the first time product attributes can be shared directly from a 3-D Modeling CAD directly to the Quality Management system within the manufacturing process.
"This innovation provides the solution to an age-old process breakdown between Engineering and Manufacturing," says Mark Orzen, Strategic Development Director for cSHARE. "The ability to share information directly, with complete accuracy, from engineering diagrams into the quality systems of the manufacturing process will represent significant labor reductions and unprecedented accuracy improvements."
Because of the new direct export capability, the labor-intensive, manual process of entering characteristics from product design documentation is eliminated, vastly improving process efficiency and data accuracy.
"The direct CAD-to-Quality transfer of critical product data will help our customers increase their time-to-market and improve their profitability," says John Cachat, Founder of IQS, Inc. "We have provided a solution to a significant problem in the marketplace; the response we've already gotten from customers interested in pursuing this integration has been phenomenal."
