Infusing Quality into every step

Continuous improvement in focus

A CAQ system, also known as an eQMS, accompanies quality assurance throughout the entire production development and manufacturing process - from feasibility assessment, planning, risk analysis and initial sampling to testing during production.

By means of the constant searching for the causes of errors, all production and service systems as well as all other activities in the company should be continuously improved. PeakAvenue's eQMS is also based on this philosophy of W. Edwards Deming and strives for quality and continuous improvement (CIP) of the production process. For this reason, all modules of the Quality Center are based on the system of the four phases (Plan, Do, Check, Act) of the PDCA cycle.

FMEA - Expect the unexpected

The FMEA plays a central role in the PeakAvenue eQMS solution "Quality Center" and is the core of effective error prevention. But PeakAvenue goes a step further. All complaints and deviations that occur within a products life cycle including the analysis thereof, result in a change in the corresponding FMEA. An immediate feedback to planning occurs creating a control loop between complaints management and FMEA.  That means all production experiences are collected in the FMEA and can be used as a knowledge pool for the business. Each newly created FMEA can access the quality know-how of the business.

Plan –planning, a continuous process

A solid quality planning is the basis for stable processes and the minimization of inspection and failure costs. Before start of production all requirements and specifications together with potential product and process errors must be identified and corresponding actions set in place.

Do – produce quality

From the control of goods received, to production accompanying inspection and onto the administration of inspection equipment – everything is relevant to production quality. As later inspections on quality assurance are costly, these should only be carried out where failures are to be expected. Therefore it is important to use all findings and knowledge not only for determining the current quality situation but also for expanding the knowledge pool of the business. Functioning control loop processes that are applied to deviations as well as the documentation have a special meaning.

Check – comparison with reality

In order to avoid repeated errors it is important during the quality planning that prognosis are compared to reality. At start of production defined actions are checked for their effectively and corrected if necessary.

Act – learn from mistakes

Knowledge is gained during the complete product development. These findings are priceless when actively used for process optimization. This is where Quality Center comes into its own. All data is recorded centrally. Errors, complaints and information feeds back into all modules and lifts quality to a new level. The goal; sustainable error prevention.

Quality Center

Each individual module is priceless, together they are unbeatable

Each Quality Center module offers you great benefits even as a stand-alone solution. By combining modules to create a complete eQMS solution, you unlock the full potential of our software. The feedback from complaints and errors creates a control loop which in turn leads to clear error and cost reductions.

Our QMS software covers all quality assurance levels from planning to production inspection through to the analysis of quality system indicators.

Basic functions

Every eQMS module comes with this as standard:

Perfect system integration

eQMS solutions from PeakAvenue are renowned for their easy integration. Interfaces for all common databases and business software such as PPS/ERP, BDE, SAP, CAD, MS Office, Q-DAS and electronic measuring machines are all easily integrated.

Central data management

Entered once and available in all modules. All QC modules access the exact same database.

Process orientated

All QC modules support the requirements of ISO 9001, VDA 6, IATF 16949, AIAG, FDA, QDX.

Individual user interface

Through integrated plug-in technology you can adjust the user interface to suit.

Integrated workflow

Scheduling, reminders and resubmissions via email support the processes and create efficiency in processing and document circulation.

Active drawing management

2D drawings and 3D models can be accessed from multiple modules. Drawing characteristics can also be transferred from paper copies.
