Powerway rolls out solutions for managing internal corrective and preventive action process, improving compliance management
Indianapolis, IN — March 23, 2004 — Powerway, a provider of product development process solutions for manufacturers, this week released its new Corrective Action and Quality Planner software and launch its Quality Planner Spanish application.
The software is part of Powerway Suite 2000, an integrated collection of solutions for the enterprise designed to help manufacturers drive continuous improvement, reduce costs and increase speed to market while conforming to international business standards and regulations.
The new Corrective Action module offers increased traceability, enhanced and custom reporting and the ability to address job-specific non-conformances, Powerway said. With Corrective Action, manufacturers can manage the internal corrective and preventive action process, from nonconformance reporting to verification of effective implementation.
Quality Planner automates critical labor-intensive activities to improve compliance management and continuous improvement programs, the provider said. By focusing on processes and the linkage of documents with shared processes, the new Quality Planner helps automotive suppliers comply with customer requirements, according to Powerway. For example, a Check Sheet Data Export function creates a fixed set of export data for populating document templates provided by customers.
"The Corrective Action and Quality Planner enhancements will make it much easier for suppliers to comply with customer-specific requirements as well as conform to the new international standard TS16949," Powerway CEO Ted Wozniak said.
Earlier this month, Powerway released Powerway.com v2.0, its Web-based collaboration tool for manufacturers. The provider says that General Motors, DaimlerChrysler and other automakers have selected Powerway.com as the standard industry solution for advanced quality planning within the global automotive supply chain.
