Tools and concepts
In addition to the checks performed in production, it is crucial to conduct laboratory tests, for example for new product validation. Although the product development and maintenance functions are not directly involved in the manufacturing flow, these departments play a key role in ensuring product quality.
The CIQ offers specific additional modules to effectively carry out the tasks related to product development and maintenance.
