Would you like to design better products and processes in less time?
Product development is a complex process with many interrelated steps. If your company is to have an effective product development system you must perform each of the steps correctly. To successfully perform an individual step, information is often needed from previously performed steps or steps. Unfortunately, most products and processes have a level of complexity that makes it impossible for human beings to effectively manage all the required information and their interrelationships.
Harpco® Systems Quality Plus® Risk Based Product Lifecycle Management Software solves the problem for you. An expert in product development, Quality Plus® manages all the key details and their integration to the point where every customer requirement is traceable to the manufacturing floor controls necessary to support it. The stored information has many uses including the ability to generate customized, detailed FMEA risk analysis in less than an hour, researching the impact of proposed design changes in minutes and defining the potential causes of field failures in seconds.

Training For Risk Management
Harpco Systems offers a variety of training classes and workshops on the core tools to help your company implement a robust Risk Based Product Lifecycle Management System (Risk Based PLM®). You will be taught how to identify and reduce risk from the definition of customer requirements through to the delivery and maintenance of the product. When properly implemented these core tools lead to increased customer satisfaction, increased sales and higher profits. All training is provided by experts in the core tools with over 25 years of experience using them.
Management support is critical to the successful implementation of the core risk management tools. In our “Introduction to Risk Based PLM® for Management” class, management will learn the critical core tools for managing risk, keys to their proper implementation, the resources and time required to implement them and their benefits.
In order to educate personnel responsible for using the core tools, two types of training are available, classes and workshops. The classes consist of one day sessions. Approximately 35% of the class time is spent teaching fundamentals using a product and/or process of the students’ choice and 65% is spent on application exercises.
The goal of the workshop is to teach the core tool fundamentals while applying the fundamentals to the point where the deliverable can be given to the customer. The workshop is scheduled for 2-4 days depending on the complexity of the product or process selected and the core tool to be applied. Although we cannot guarantee completion, significant process is always made. One 4 day workshop created a 300+ page Process FMEA and supporting Process Control Plan.
