The Product Data Management Professionals

Trusted advice, hands-on implementation. QR_ provides Product Data management consultancy services and automation to manufacturers, technologists and Tier 1 suppliers seeking to build lasting capability, accelerate and de-risk complex programmes, and improve engineering efficiency.

Quick Release_

Decarbonisation and other major disruptors of the global economy are driving an unprecedented level of new, advanced product development and introduction. However, 90% of such programmes run late and over budget through lack of early visibility for critical path items, delayed or misaligned through poor and incomplete product data. It’s typically not the product technology itself that’s the problem, it’s the ability to realise the product in an increasingly complex business environment.

QR_ is uniquely focused on this, connecting silos to create timely, accurate and human centric information flows. As a result, we are global leaders in PDM and supreme in our ability to tackle this mission-critical issue.

We are like consultants, but better. We’re analysts, project managers, technical wizards and communication experts, but most of all we’re thinkers and doers who solve complex problems, propose smart solutions and then back up our words with actions.

Navigating global challenges

Capability

Set your team up for success, ensure momentum is gained, maintained, and supported by scalable infrastructure and delivery-focused processes. Our Capability solution enables your team to work effectively and collaboratively as soon as possible.

Long development cycles make for short memories. Repeatably leverage hard-won successes across multiple programmes and avoid reinventing the wheel.

Accelerate

80 percent of all new complex engineered projects are late or overbudget. Why should non-delivery be the norm? Our Accelerate solution inspires the creativity to go faster.

Short release times enable growth, which for many is survival. However, balancing quality control with business constraints, while leveraging data to inform real-time decision making and creating a true picture of programme health can be challenging.

Working alongside a military vehicle manufacturer, QR_ recently reduced average programme timing overruns from 50 to 15 percent.

Expensive talents burdened by admin work is an inefficient and demotivating use of resource. QR_ empowers engineering teams to deliver to the best of their capabilities, optimising business process and data entry to improve engineering performance.
