Q-PLM technology is based on TECHNIA’s tremendous experience of integrating Q-Checker with an extensive list of PDM systems, including Dassault Systèmes ENOVIA SmarTeam, ENOVIA MatrixOne, and data exchange servers such as OpenDXM, TRUfusion and SWAN.

Benefits

Model Data Quality

Improvement of model data quality and reduction of repairs by automated checks during the PDM life cycle.

Quality Information

Quality information is visible in the PDM system based on PDM attributes and Q-Checker check reports.

Standard Components

Q-PLM offers standard components, that allow a fast and stable integration in the PLM environment.

Implementation

Low implementation effort.

Compatible

Compatible with upcoming versions of CATIA and Q-Checker.

Q-PLM Functions

Interactive

Execute Q-Checker by using the toolbar button in the PDM User Interface.
 

Lifecycle stage

  • Check-In: Q-Checker execution before Check-in
  • Promote / Release: Q-Checker execution before Release or Freeze
  • Workflow: Q-Checker execution upon a workflow task

 

Assessment scores may be required for better control

  • Assessment scores measure the level of quality of a model with a sum calculated by all errors found
  • Strict access restrictions can be set so that only clean data is permitted in a PDM system
  • Assessment accuracy can be set regarding the lifecycle stage
  • Message notification is automatically sent to the user/administrator

Different profiles can be run

  • A profile is a set of checks used to detect errors within a model
  • A profile can be set specifically for PDM quality standards
  • Different importance levels can be configured
  • Different profiles can be controlled by PDM attributes

 

Results are communicated clearly inside the PDM system

  • With PDM attributes modified by Q-PLM
  • With profile tabs automatically populated
  • With HTML reports attached to the data inside the product tree

Q-PLM for CATIA V6 and 3DEXPERIENCE

Configured with one XML file, Q-PLM is easily maintained without scripting or programming knowledge. The later an error is detected in the product development, the more expensive the repair will be. Companies’ profits have increased to above-average when implementing Q-Checker in the design phase. At critical points such as the release or gate transfers, the product data quality will be ensured.

Q-PLM takes models and process information that is verified by the PDM system or any data exchange processes and carries out Q-Checker batch checks. The results are reported back to process steps in defined formats. Based on those check results, a release to the next process step can even be stopped.
