MetricStream Adds Two Modules to Quality Software

MetricStream has added two modules to its customer quality software. The Customer Issue Management module allows a manufacturer to start the process for investigation and tracking of reported customer quality issues. It tracks issues in specific terms, performs containment and failure analysis and determines if corrective action needs to be initiated.

The Change Notification module enables manufacturers to standardize the processes for initiating and communicating product changes to enable systematic decision making and timely communication. The module covers product changes, obsolescence, alerts and recalls.
