Siemens Energy consolidates its forerunner status with Fabasoft Approve cross-plant quality management software
Greater efficiency thanks to workflow-driven complaint management
Siemens Energy is using Fabasoft Approve as the process-driven quality management solution for its Power Transformer segment. The global rollout of Fabasoft Approve is scheduled for upwards of 3,000 users following the successful completion of pilot projects at the two largest transformer plants in Weiz (Austria) and Nuremberg (Germany).
The challenge for Siemens Energy was to implement a cross-plant quality management tool in one network with 14 locations in eight countries and to digitally map its existing processes. Thanks to its wide range of customization options and high degree of usability, Fabasoft Approve made a convincing case in the multi-stage selection process and stood out as the high-performance platform of choice for computer-aided quality (CAQ) processes. The cloud-based solution offers comprehensive complaint management that can even be handled from a smartphone or tablet – for both in-house use and remote use at the customer’s site. Allocating the necessary immediate, corrective, and preventive actions is a workflow-driven process that can be tracked at any time.
