From the very start of your product’s lifecycle the design controls and supplier information are vital components to building your product’s digital thread. Without proper design controls and supplier management, creating a digital footprint for your products – so you can improve quality, traceability and guarantee compliance – becomes impossible.
That’s why keeping track of all your supplier parts, requirements and inputs while developing and designing your products is required by regulatory standards. For example, even from the beginning of your design and verification process, your selected Level 1 and Level 2 manufactures can impact your product risk, design and needed controls. Ensuring these manufacturers are properly vetted through component qualification reduces the likelihood of incorporating incorrect parts into your product design.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss how you can start taking steps to upgrade your ASL (Approved Supplier List) to an Approved Manufacture Listing (AML) that fits into your products quality plans. Learn how to build practical data structures to start your product digital threads and provide the needed visibility so your suppliers and manufactures can build high quality products that your customers will swear by.
