Thanks Charles and far911.  I've also seen how a well-documented audit traceability system can be used by younger engineers to quickly develop the skills needed to become contributing team members.  A well written system can help 'mentor' others by laying out a structured framework and a proven process to abide by.

Excellent points, Greg. Audit traceability is a key here, and it must be especially important for companies building electronically-controlled products that are constantly being upgraded.

Traceability and Knowledge Capture

I appreciate the audit traceability and knowledge capture on this system.  In many of today's fast-paced environments, good knowledge capture is very important because new team members must quickly learn how to support or modify the design when the previous team members are not present.  This type of system will help companies be more efficient when faced with dynamic and changing resource allocations.

I don't know if GM used product quality software in its system, but it seems like this kind of system might have helped GM make the link between the faulty ignitions switches and its airbag issues. It took GM about ten years to connect the two.

Rob, this is a good example of a topic that has appeared in Design News over the last couple of years.  PLM systems that can integrate all phases of a product lifecycle, including a flexible ability to get information into the system will help increase effieciency and quality.

Latest Analysis
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
The Industrial Internet of Things is bringing a previously reluctant process industry into the wireless fold. The ability to connect smart sensors to the Internet has spiked the demand for wireless devices in process manufacturing, according to the new study from ARC Advisory Group.
If you’re developing an embedded monitoring and control application, then you’ll want to take note of the upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Embedded Development Using Microchip Microcontrollers and the CCS C Compiler."
US factory orders for durable goods tumbled 3.4% in December on a big drop in new bookings for commercial aircraft, according to data the Commerce Department released Tuesday.
