Prototype build and launch operations with Quick Release_

Prototype builds and complex engineered product launches are the moment of truth, and the truth is often hard. Mis-recorded attributes, unreleased changes, and last-minute additions equate to costly tooling changes, line stoppages, strained relations with suppliers and expedited logistics.

Trust us to deliver a photo finish for your programme, with a perfect prototype build and seamless launch.

With extensive multi-sector, multi-geographic experience assisting clients build capability, accelerate programmes and de-risk builds, driving efficiencies through our perfect prototype build methodology, QR_ has the implementation muscle to ensure these insights deliver quick, tangible results.

Supplementing our people-centric process work, the GAia suite of digital tools contains proven MRP, release timing and BoM validation modules, plus an upcoming test planning and scheduling solution, to ensure we deliver outcomes through insight, automation and control.

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 to occur within the next 10 years, and how ECM must evolve to fulfil the new and changing demands of the automotive industry.
