Issue, Defect & Change Management

Integrate issues, defect and change management data 

Smarter, Faster, Lighter’s Issue, Defect & Change Management solution ensures the integrity of all reported electronic component issues and defects while accounting for all changes required to fix each problem in a product’s lifecycle. With this industry solution experience, all product development stakeholders can raise and resolve issues, regardless of role or location. All issues are identified, assigned to owners, tracked (reported upon) and resolved in a seamless, common platform. To keep the entire enterprise synchronized, issues can spawn formal change processes for engineering and manufacturing.

Any intellectual property, whether stored in a legacy PLM system or other application, can be identified as an affected item of an issue or a change. In order to reduce change cycle time, suppliers and customers can participate in the issue and change management processes as required.
