Dyadem Unveils New Quality Lifecycle Management Solution to Help Customers Increase Competitive Advantage
Jun 21, 2007 (12:06 PM EDT)


TORONTO, June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 processes.

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 the globe."

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 Stature, visit: http://www.dyadem.com
