IQS Releases New Enterprise Quality Performance Management Model

Published: Tuesday, November 9, 2004 - 23:00

IQS recently announced the availability of its new Enterprise Quality Performance Management (EQPM) model at its annual user group conference.

The new model is based on the existing data model, which represented significant innovation in the quality management market when it was released in 1985. The new EQPM model reflects the manufacturing industry’s growing focus on improving internal processes, reducing operating costs and achieving a sustainable competition in the global marketplace. Instead of the traditional modular network of point solutions addressing specific quality-based issues, the new enterprise model presents solutions that address enterprisewide processes that often affect quality, such as critical manufacturing work processes, including product launch, issue tracking, product and process documentation, supplier performance, compliance and audits.
