External data, opaque third-party processes and unpredictable variables. Supply chain is rarely glamorous and is rarely easy. But getting it right is essential to successful programme delivery, ongoing lifecycle management and public perception.
Delivering inter-organisation data visibility, process transparency and stakeholder trust.
Implementing some comparatively easy and unobtrusive steps to actively manage supply chains can help ensure both established manufacturers and challengers’ successfully commercializing world-beating new IP, avoid costly delays and reputational damage.
With global experience of helping our clients deliver successful complex engineered product builds through order management, sourcing, supplier liaison and MRP integration, trust QR_ to see your components from design to line.

“Manufacturers rely heavily on their supply chain management processes to ensure timely production. Supply chain processes usually run-in decentralized systems without any connection between stock management and part ordering. This lack of transparency in supply chain data is a major barrier to establishing reliable manufacturing requirement planning processes (MRP).”

Establishing effective Product Data Management: The lifeblood of any complex engineering programme
Effective product data management is a requisite of any complex engineering programme. Organisations that can get their products to market faster, better prepared and more efficiently will clearly be the winners. Without a capable PDM solution, your organisation could face reduced productivity, quality failures and loss in revenue; ultimately losing ground against competitors. From individual components to complete systems and assemblies, QR_ provide a fully-supported and scalable solution that delivers real results.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
QR_ 'Insightinar' #1: rapid application development and extreme manufacturing challenges
How the engineering and production methodologies conceived, developed and refined in almost real-time during the VCUK ventilator scale-up challenge can be applied to challenger organisations seeking to reach prototype gateways more quickly and more efficiently, production-bound IP holders struggling to realise their market-share potential, and larger organisations looking beyond the usual to ensure competitive advantage in a post-Covid world.Find out more
