Engineering Management with Quick Release_

Development cycles for complex engineered products are frequently measured in years, budgets in billions and delays in months and tens of millions. Enhanced visibility of issues feeding slippages can significantly accelerate programmes and drive cost efficiencies.

A seamless digital to physical transition. On time, on budget. And no hockey sticks!

Reporting limitations often mean individual part status is often only available for a small percentage of the development cycle, meaning problems go unnoticed until too late and changes and subsequent releases are stressful and rushed, while others idle awaiting changes to interdependent components.

Supporting multi-sector clients across three continents, QR_ accelerate engineering programmes and drive efficiencies by planning for every part, ensuring right-sized release and change management processes, swift and effective issue resolution, and design verification planning. We can apply many years’ experience, unique benchmarking, and bespoke digital tools to ensure key stakeholders have quality data to inform impactful decisions.

“Clients invest in our expertise in Engineering management so that their engineers do what they do and engineer. Deploying the industry-best processes and methodologies we take the hassle out of how things need to be done and rather focus the client’s resources on doing the things that need to be done.”

Pre-requisites for introducing successful ECM in a start-up

When working with start-ups, Engineering Change Management (ECM) is often among the first processes identified as required and implemented by the QR_ team. This paper outlines the key pre-requisites that should be in place for ECM to function effectively. For each area, a minimum and ideal requirement specification has been outlined. Although having the ‘ideal’ requirements in place will help ECM function more effectively from day one and reduce process iterations, making decisions and implementing change management quickly is the priority to gain control of the change throughput. Therefore, a balance must be struck between speed and creating an ideal environment for implementation.

Establishing effective Product Data Management: The lifeblood of any complex engineering programme

Effective product data management is a requisite of any complex engineering programme. Organisations that can get their products to market faster, better prepared and more efficiently will clearly be the winners. Without a capable PDM solution, your organisation could face reduced productivity, quality failures and loss in revenue; ultimately losing ground against competitors. From individual components to complete systems and assemblies, QR_ provide a fully-supported and scalable solution that delivers real results.

Horizon Scanning: ECM in Automotive and beyond

Many current ECM systems are designed for robust approval in a slower paced market, falling into the ‘Less’, ‘Earlier’ and ‘Effective’ strategies. As traditional powertrains begin to disappear, these workflows and systems will need to adapt to meet the demands of a now highly innovative and dynamic industry, pushing towards ‘Efficient’, ‘Better’, and a new Agile ECM strategy. This report outlines some of the industry changes likely occur within the next 10 years, and how ECM must evolve to fulfil the new and changing demands of the automotive industry.

Webinar: The Secret Sauce to Open Source (PI DX Spotlight)

As solar-electric vehicle manufacturer Lightyear approaches series production, digital plumber Rob Ferrone will compere as Willem van den Corput reflects on Lightyear’s product development journey so far, and Bas van Goch on the enterprise architecture and data culture underpinning it. Focusing on the challenge of ensuring systems are both ‘right sized’ for now and scalable for the future, Sam Fletcher will explore how the integration of rapidly deployable and comparably inexpensive open-source tools to an off-the-shelf backbone can prove attractive. Both Lightyear’s QRonos BTRS integration and the creation and deployment of an MRP tool for a medical device consortium with be referenced.
