The MatrixOne Automotive Accelerator for Program Management (APQP) allows companies to effectively manage and launch vehicle development programs that meet quality goals, and come in on-time and on-budget by giving role-based visibility and access to real-time APQP product and project status information. It helps automotive companies:

* Develop global vehicle product programs with the Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) process;
* Track and manage all deliverables, such as FMEAs, DVP&R and Control Plans;
* Communicate changes to all key stakeholders in a timely manner; and
* Mitigate risk early with management dashboard and visibility into each program’s related projects or supplier deliverables – such as with the Production Part Approval Process (PPAP).

The MatrixOne Aerospace & Defense Accelerator for Program Management helps A&D companies comply with all contractual requirements and regulations, and improve the overall performance of delivery to contract by integrating all critical program management information into a single collaborative system. This new solution will allow A&D companies to:

* Improve communication across the entire program team – including external partners and off-site locations;
* Earn Award Fees through having a perfect contract data performance record;
* Reduce penalties and late payments;
* Deliver on-time and DID-compliant contract data; and
* Eliminate failed audits with a repeatable and secure submittal process.
