Development cycles for complex engineered products are frequently measured in years, budgets in billions and delays in months and tens of millions. Enhanced visibility of issues feeding slippages can significantly accelerate programmes and drive cost efficiencies.
A seamless digital to physical transition. On time, on budget. And no hockey sticks!
Reporting limitations often mean individual part status is often only available for a small percentage of the development cycle, meaning problems go unnoticed until too late and changes and subsequent releases are stressful and rushed, while others idle awaiting changes to interdependent components.
Supporting multi-sector clients across three continents, QR_ accelerate engineering programmes and drive efficiencies by planning for every part, ensuring right-sized release and change management processes, swift and effective issue resolution, and design verification planning. We can apply many years’ experience, unique benchmarking, and bespoke digital tools to ensure key stakeholders have quality data to inform impactful decisions.

Why the latest UNECE regulations are making OEMs think twice about configuration management
UNECE regulations 155 and 156 introduce new vehicle homologation requirements around software update management and cyber security. Here, Omid Hosseinitabar, QR_'s Engineering Management champion and Product Manager for ERis, the continuous improvement product within QR_'s GAia suite, explores a high-level approach to managing the complex world of software in-line with the new requirements.Find out more
Horizon Scanning: ECM in Automotive and beyond
Many current ECM systems are designed for robust approval in a slower paced market, falling into the ‘Less’, ‘Earlier’ and ‘Effective’ strategies. As traditional powertrains begin to disappear, these workflows and systems will need to adapt to meet the demands of a now highly innovative and dynamic industry, pushing towards ‘Efficient’, ‘Better’, and a new Agile ECM strategy. This report outlines some of the industry changes likely occur within the next 10 years, and how ECM must evolve to fulfil the new and changing demands of the automotive industry.Find out more
PI DX Spotlight: The Secret Sauce to Open Source
As solar-electric vehicle manufacturer Lightyear approaches series production, digital plumber Rob Ferrone will compere as Willem van den Corput reflects on Lightyear’s product development journey so far, and Bas van Goch on the enterprise architecture and data culture underpinning it. Focusing on the challenge of ensuring systems are both ‘right sized’ for now and scalable for the future, Sam Fletcher will explore how the integration of rapidly deployable and comparably inexpensive open-source tools to an off-the-shelf backbone can prove attractive. Both Lightyear’s QRonos BTRS integration and the creation and deployment of an MRP tool for a medical device consortium with be referenced.Find out more
