Data management is a critical part of the design and tooling fabrication process to ensure we are compliant to ASS9100C configuration management. We have dedicated data management personnel whose prime responsibility is to validate, transfer and monitor incoming and outgoing data files. Customer data is managed using Smart Team, which keeps its secure and organized. We are able to transfer extremely large dataset files via secure File Transfer Protocol (FTP) and PMs monitor to know when customer data arrives, the format, and the revision level of data being sent.
Digital Product Definition (DPD)—We also utilize electronic data elements that specify the geometry and all customer design requirements for a product (including notation and parts lists), and the use of this data throughout an integrated Computer aided Design/Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) and Coordinate Measurement System (CMS).
