Jaguar Land Rover Selects DCS's Graphic Data Management (GDM) Software for Dimensional Data Management

March 8, 2012

TROY, MI-- Dimensional Control Systems Inc. (DCS), a provider of quality management software solutions and consulting services, announced today that Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has selected the Graphic Data Management (GDM) solution to replace its existing dimensional data management system.

GDM is a quality data management reporting and monitoring system that allows users and managers to review and control their processes from anywhere in the world. By providing real-time analysis of measured quality data, trends can be detected and potential problems rectified well before parts or assemblies start to fail more traditional quality checks. For the first time, it will be possible to “close the loop” from manufacturing back to design, providing real feedback for engineers, directly improving overall product quality.

Jaguar Land Rover has been leading the field in quality data collection and reporting, but expanding the use of this information is the key to success.

“This million-dollar order is the first stage in a series of new technology initiatives that are building towards a fully integrated quality future within the Catia V6 environment,” said JLR DM Manager Vince Blake.

"The partnership between JLR and DCS allows engineers to have immediate access to quality product data from any web capable PC or hand-held device,” said DCS president and CEO Robert Kaphengst. “We are very proud to have been selected as JLR’s partner to help move their processes forward – particularly given their exceptional quality goals.”
