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

Cognition Corporation: Understanding Critical-to-Quality (CTQ) Flowup
We hope readers will feel empowered to leverage methodologies like CTQ for more dynamic and insightful requirements management.

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

The new white paper reviews the basics of CTQ Flowup and its value for managing both critical quality requirements and overall product quality. As a bottom-up methodology, CTQ Flowup allows teams to evaluate relationships up the requirements flow and the impact of CTQ performance at each requirement level during product development.

“CTQ Flowup is a necessary part of the overall CTQ process,” says David Cronin, CEO of Cognition Corporation. “Apart from just identifying which aspects of your product are necessary to meet user needs and other quality benchmarks, you need to identify how those aspects are going to perform.”

The new white paper is designed to understand the process of establishing relationships between requirements in the CTQ Flowup process. As well, it reviews the steps necessary to statistically evaluate critical parameter performance.

“The process of CTQ Flowup can require much more involvement than the Flowdown,” says Mr. Cronin. “You’re not just looking at the relationships between your requirements. You’re also trying to mathematically establish how certain quality aspects should perform and how that impacts the product’s overall system.”

“There’s a lot involved here,” adds Mr. Cronin, “which is why we developed this white paper. We hope readers will feel empowered to leverage methodologies like CTQ for more dynamic and insightful requirements management.”

The white paper is available for download here.
