Webcast on 12/19: Enterprise Quality Management and the Product Value Chain

Build a Strong Foundation to Promote Quality Excellence

Although most guiding principles for quality management have remained constant, the past few years have pushed business models to change so dramatically that once-ideal systems are now obsolete. Point quality solutions and siloed directives are not capable of sustaining growth. Business leaders are looking to centralize and extend quality controls to promote excellence enterprise-wide, and they are finding success by building a solid foundation throughout the product value chain.

The product value chain comprises all product data and every related process, so with proper controls embedded throughout, organizations can pragmatically enforce common quality standards across a very wide range of quality initiatives. Join our webcast on Thursday, December 19th at 11:00 a.m. PST / 02:00 p.m. EST featuring industry analyst LNS Research and industry leader GE Healthcare to learn about:

  • How GE Healthcare built a world-class Supplier Quality Management System leveraging Oracle’s Enterprise Quality Management solutions
  • The current enterprise quality landscape and the role of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions as the core enabler of effectively managing quality processes from “insight to action”
  • Top challenges and best practices for executives considering Enterprise Quality Management solutions
  • Benefits such as risk reduction and sustainable growth through fast, efficient problem resolution and corrective action

New On-Demand Webcast: How Leading Brands Use Product Quality as a Differentiator

Last week Oracle and Kalypso jointly held a webcast showcasing some of the inspiring ways companies leverage Agile Product Lifecycle Management applications as a foundation for comprehensive Enterprise Quality Management.  If you happened to miss it, don't fret!  The webcast is now available On-Demand.   

Why should you watch this webcast? 

Product quality is a powerful differentiator: surveys consistently prove it is a top influence in consumer buying decisions. And since technology has made quality ratings so easily accessible to the market, companies are under increasing pressure to ensure the highest possible quality and to resolve issues quickly. But many companies are not fully equipped to manage this dynamic. Is your organization prepared to confidently design quality and compliance into your new products, and quickly access, analyze and resolve problems when they surface anywhere in your value chain? To prevent poor quality from affecting great products, leading brands take a comprehensive approach to managing both supplier and product quality, deploying Product Quality Management (PQM) solutions as a part of their overall Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) roadmap. Please take a moment to watch this On-Demand Product Quality Webcast with speakers Joe Erickson of Oracle and Fred Brown of Kalypso featuring an informative discussion on how Agile PLM and PLM for Process can help your company prepare for and manage your product quality and regulatory requirements.

There's even a special offer included in the webcast... watch it today to find out!
