Quality Management Software Solutions for Aerospace

A growing global economy and an increase in air traffic has made the world much smaller. As a result, the aerospace industry has experienced significant growth in the past few decades. As demand for air travel increases, so does the need for aerospace manufacturers, engineering firms, contractors, suppliers and more.

Integrated Air Safety Software System

EtQ's Aviation SMS Software is an integrated Safety Management software solution that has been pre-configured to specifically address the needs of the Aviation industry and its regulatory agencies including ICAO, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and Transport Canada. EtQ's unique modular approach provides unparalleled flexibility and automation. The modules are tightly integrated to deliver a best-in-class Safety Management Software solution.

Connected to the Production Systems

EtQ Connectors close the gap between production systems and the quality system. Modules like Nonconformance Management software and Customer Complaint Management connect to ERP and CRM systems to fully automate the creation and assignment of events. Production systems can then be automatically updated throughout the event resolution process. For example, to trigger the release of a product based on the MRB disposition; or update the complaint status based on the Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) investigation results.

Advanced Filtering of Events

EtQ's unique Air Safety Software system is designed to minimize the number of corrective actions using an advanced filtering model:

  • Automatic segregation and categorization of incidents at the source
  • Automatic identification and display of related incidents
  • Built-in Risk Assessment Software
  • Initial assessment to allow early closure
  • Risk Assessment throughout the process to guide decision making
  • Full investigation with step-by-step root cause analysis
  • Automatic lookup and display of related investigations and corrective actions
  • Comprehensive corrective action and effectiveness check plan with risk mitigation history

EtQ’s Aviation Safety Management Software capabilities include:

  • Job Safety Analysis (JSA) linked to Risk Assessment to proactively mitigate job risk and determine Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other preventive measures needed to mitigate risk
  • Reporting to identify trends across the enterprise
  • Audits linked to Risk Assessment to identify areas in which corrective action is needed to mitigate risk
  • Data table within Reporting to enable configurable templates for Key Performance Indicator (KPI) tracking
  • Overview report to show how well an organization is meeting metrics
  • Operational Report to show frequency of events by occurrence type and effectively record ultimate results and effects
  • Risk Assessment to determine risk of hazard occurring and measure residual risk

Closed-Loop Corrective Action

EtQ's Aviation SMS software is pre-configured to initiate various post-CAPA processes, including electronic distribution of CAPA results, Change Management, and Employee Training

EtQ Job Safety Analysis

EtQ’s Job Safety Analysis (JSA) defines and controls the hazards associated with a certain job. The JSA ensures that the risk of each step of a task is reduced to its lowest level. Through this revision controlled module, the user will, for each JSA to be performed, record the Job Basic Information, Job Steps, Hazards, and Controls then create the needed Risk Assessments and train related people.

Change Management

EtQ's Change Management module is designed to manage all aspects of the Change Management process. EtQ's Change Management module integrates with other key modules such as Risk Assessment to analyze the impact of change, and Complaint Handling to identify adverse events, analyze change feedback and collect customer requirements for future changes.

Visibility into all Quality and Compliance Processes

EtQ integrates data from multiple business systems to ensure a high level of compliance and quality for your organization.

  • Reduce the time and cost of dual-entry by pulling data from existing production systems
  • Eliminate the quality and compliance gap by automatically converting defects identified in production systems into workflow based events in EtQ
  • Prevent poor data quality by selecting from existing data in external systems
  • Minimize risk in product releases by scanning systems for open quality issues prior to release
