(September 05, 2001)
PlanetCAD Inc., a developer of Cycle Time Reduction software solutions for the manufacturing supply chain, announced the release of DesignQA version 4.1 for UGS' Unigraphics.

DesignQA 4.1 allows Unigraphics users to establish and maintain design practices.

DesignQA is the engineering quality assurance software. It detects, assesses, corrects and prevents product development problems. .

DesignQA 4.1 improves on the leading design quality software with the addition of 18 new design standards, including the popular "Engineering Checklist." This checklist automates the process of tracking the list of items that a designer must complete for each phase of the design release process. The checklist is fully customizable and is stored in the model as a permanent record. The capability to add custom fields to the quality metrics data captured by DesignQA is also included. This provides greater flexibility to collect or subdivide quality metrics data to more easily pinpoint key issues and drive process improvements with DriveQA.

Features in DesignQA 4.1 include:

-- 18 new standards

-- Standards file versioning, password protection and quality
stamping in support of supply chain management.

-- Improvements in usability to customize the sizing, sorting,
etc. of the configurator and results browser.

-- Profile options that allow the administrator to limit the user
run panel options.

-- Expanded data segregation capabilities when analyzing quality
metrics through custom field support.

DesignQA belongs to the PrescientQA family of design quality software. Others in the line include DriveQA, GeometryQA, CertifyQA software and the AuditQA products.
