What’s in SimplerQMS Engineering Change Management Software?
SimplerQMS provides a cloud-based QMS software for life science organizations with a built-in engineering change management solution that allows your organization to create, share, review, and release engineering-related changes to speed up approvals.
Here are some of the core engineering change management features and benefits you get using SimplerQMS.
Streamline Engineering Change Management Process
Gain a competitive edge by cutting down your administrative overhead and costs related to disconnected and ineffective tools.
With SimplerQMS engineering change management software you can create and manage engineering changes with ease. Create documents using our best-practice engineering change request (ECR) forms, route documents for review or approval, follow up on approvals, escalate pending approvals, and more.
Easily create relationships between ECR, ECO, ECN, and documents related to engineering changes, so you always have complete visibility and control over your engineering changes.
Automate Design Review and Approval Processes
Design changes are a common occurrence in medical device engineering. When these changes happen, you need to have a structured process in place to review the changes, get approvals, and implement the changes.
SimplerQMS automatically notifies and sends email reminders to those who need to review or approve changes. Assignments can be escalated to the managers if someone doesn’t act in a timely manner.
You can also track the status of engineering changes, so you always know what’s happening and where things are in the process.
Connect Quality Processes In One Platform
When teams, data, and processes are siloed, engineering change management becomes complex and difficult. Disconnected tools only add to the problem by creating more inefficiencies. SimplerQMS is designed to help you overcome these challenges and streamline your medical device engineering change process.
The software integrates with various quality processes to ensure flawless change implementation, such as suppliers, training, non-conformances, CAPAs, and other processes. All documents can be linked to each other and are stored in a secure, centralized cloud-based storage for easy access and retrieval.
Enable End-To-End Traceability and Ensure Compliance
The ability to track engineering changes throughout the product life cycle is critical for quality and compliance.
SimplerQMS allows you to easily review changes in light of engineering drawings, requirements, artifacts, bills of material (BOMs), and documents linked to quality processes.
Furthermore, SimplerQMS is designed to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and helps you comply with ISO 13485, FDA 21 CFR Part 820, 21 CFR Part 11, and GxP requirements. We provide features like electronic signatures, password authentication prior to approval, document versioning, time-stamped audit trails, and more. This makes it an ideal solution for businesses in highly regulated industries, like medical devices.
Solution That Goes Far Beyond Change Management
Create documents, track revisions, control access, and manage your entire document control process from start to finish.
Accelerate your device product development by linking systems, documentation, and records in a central location.
Streamline the process of identifying, evaluating, analyzing, and managing non-conformities.
Quickly and easily identify, uncover, resolve, and report all the corrective and preventative actions (CAPAs).
Document, review, and approve or reject changes in an organized manner to ensure compliance and structure within your QMS.
Effectively manage your risk files, easily identify potential risks, and take corrective action to mitigate them.
