Product quality management through the product lifecycle

Faced with the financial impact of warranty costs, launch delays, late-product rework, and product recalls, companies can’t afford not to take quality very seriously. But too often, product quality is addressed using disjointed, department-specific tools that seldom – if ever – communicate critical quality information across organizational functions and lifecycle stages. Effective product quality management allows companies to build quality, reliability, safety and process controls into every part of the product lifecycle.
