It is clear that companies are looking for more than just APQP software; they need an APQP solution that includes off-loading the mundane clerical and administration tasks so that the product launch team can focus on getting new products to market.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) September 05, 2012
KeyedIn Solutions, a global SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions provider and consulting organization, today announced a new solution designed to solve problems associated with deploying the Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) process in global automotive and aerospace supply chains.
“There are very few cost-effective, global SaaS solutions for this marketplace. The APQP Managed Service offering from KeyedIn Solutions blends a pure SaaS technology platform with a managed service, helping clients master the day-to-day operations of the APQP process,” said John Cachat, Senior Vice President of Global Consulting at KeyedIn Solutions. “I have been working in the APQP space for over 25 years, and it is clear that companies are looking for more than just APQP software; they need an APQP solution that includes off-loading the mundane clerical and administration tasks so that the product launch team can focus on getting new products to market.”
APQP is one of the most complex, labor intensive, and often poorly executed processes in the automotive and aerospace industries. Companies that implement APQP processes are often burdened with poor collaboration tools and time-consuming activities, such as the generation of status reports. Valuable project data that could be used for reporting is scattered across various project emails or vaulted as documents in product lifecycle management (PLM) systems. The KeyedIn APQP Managed Service offering helps breakdown the complexity of the process and facilitates efficient project management, collaboration and more.
“As a global executive for tier-one automotive companies, I have repeatedly seen how errors in the APQP process result in hundreds of millions of dollars wasted in warranty costs,” said Scott A. Gray, a KeyedIn Solutions business partner. “This offering from KeyedIn Solutions is not only extremely cost effective, it’s designed to manage APQP from the program management office (PMO) level. All the detailed Gantt charts mean nothing if you do not manage risks, deal with issues, and correctly allocate the right resources at the right time. KeyedIn provides all of the tools needed manage this critical cross-functional business process, which has the double benefit of reducing warranty costs and bringing new high quality products to market, faster.”
KeyedIn Solutions will be launching the APQP Managed Services offering at the AIAG Quality Summit, in Livonia, Michigan on September 17-18, 2012.
