New White Paper Discusses Critical-to-Quality Flowdown for Life Science Product Development

Cognition Corporation Understanding Critical to Quality Flowdown White Paper
Because CTQ Flowdown is such a powerful method... we wanted to provide valuable content around it that teams can use to evaluate their own processes and procedures.

Cognition Corporation, a software company specializing in medical device compliance and commercialization, has just released a new white paper discussing Critical-to-Quality (CTQ) Flowdown.

The new white paper reviews the basics of CTQ Flowdown and its value for managing product quality. As a top-down requirements management methodology, CTQ Flowdown allows teams to preserve customer Voices and User Needs at each requirements level during product development.

“As a methodology for requirements management, CTQ Flowdown is very powerful,” says David Cronin, CEO of Cognition Corporation. “We embarked on this white paper to really show those who might be less familiar with it just how impactful it can be when managing product requirements.”

The paper can help those who download it better understand what the parameters of a developed CTQ look like, how they might flow down into lower-level, more technical product requirements/specifications, and methods for linking all this project data together.

“We know how important interconnectivity of your project data can be,” says Mr. Cronin. “With changing technologies for data management and an ever-increasing shift towards data-centric—rather than document-centric—product development, methods that help connect your data and prioritize it are more crucial than ever.”

“Because CTQ Flowdown is such a powerful method for this,” Mr. Cronin adds, “we wanted to provide valuable content around it that teams can use to evaluate their own processes and procedures. As well, we hope it empowers teams to advocate internally for better quality management with proven tools.”

The white paper is available for download here.
