Designs on compliance: Kongsberg Automotive tackles regulations using quality, risk management solutions
Dyadem's FMEA-Pro quality and risk life-cycle management solution will allow Kongsberg Automotive to unify its compliance reporting from development through preparation and production, resulting in an efficient way to meet its rigorous quality standards.
Kongsberg Automotive , a Norwegian automotive components manufacturer, is advancing its compliance processes with quality and risk life-cycle management solutions from Dyadem .
Dyadem's FMEA-Pro will enable Kongsberg to unify its compliance reporting from development through preparation and production, thereby establishing an efficient way to meet its rigorous quality standards. FMEA-Pro 7 is a Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) software solution that improves quality, productivity, and safety while providing a means for reviewing product and process designs and ensuring regulatory compliance.
FMEA-Pro can prevent the same design or manufacturing errors from being repeated, cutting down product recalls of new designs.
According to Kevin North, president and CEO of Dyadem, "All of our customers understand the importance of FMEAs, but without the Dyadem solutions, they are faced with the daunting task of trying to manage these studies as dynamic, living documents. As companies expand operations in multiple locations and countries, these problems become exaggerated, and the critical data that is being entered into these studies often is being [compartmentalized] in the best of cases, and even lost altogether in the worst of cases. Dyadem solutions offer companies a way of effectively managing both the FMEA studies and the data on both a departmental and global basis."

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
