WAVE. Design Lifecycle Management
Experience the advantages of the WAVE modules. As a core system, WAVE is modular in design and consists of five core modules. OUTLINE, TIMELINE, COMMUNICATE, VISUALISE and APPROVE
Our briefing module OUTLINE offers a frontend that can be individually configured to your needs to collect all product-relevant information. Different users can merge, check and release product specifications in WAVE. A classic Master Data Management process in WAVE, which is part of your product information system Also, project-relevant information such as responsibilities and deadlines are communicated centrally in OUTLINE and are available to all process participants at all times. With Outline you guarantee consistent communication of your product data and have a long-term product archive. With OUTLINE you create the basis for effective multiple use of your product data.
Our workflow module TIMELINE shows your processes in a simple and clear form. At a glance you can see the status of your projects and the progress of all project components. With TIMELINE we configure your standard business processes in a flexible and for the user transparent form. Along the milestones in TIMELINE, tasks are assigned to different process participants using different authorizations. This makes it transparent who has which task in the project, so that work can be carried out in a team without a great deal of coordination effort. With TIMELINE you make your processes transparent and create the basis for efficient project management.
COMMUNICATE organizes your project communication and combines all information in a history. With the COMMUNICATE communication module you can reduce the flood of emails and communications lacking detail. Files are managed logically according to categories. User-specific task lists, chat requests as info or with a request for an answer. On your homepage you will find everything neatly structured, always accessible and traceable at any time. In this way, a representative regulation can also take effect without much coordination. COMMUNICATE summarizes all project information in a log file. An effective audit trail and an excellent basis for a continuous improvement process.
The release process is certainly the decisive quality inspection process in a company. A wide variety of parties are involved and may act either sequentially or in parallel throughout the review process. International teams work together, specifications are checked across time zones using checklists. Changes are communicated, commented and passed on to a robust change management process. With APPROVE you achieve product safety which exceeds market standards and is documented at all times in a closed quality chain.
Our different VISUALISE modules are the professional tools your team needs to perform a qualified audit. With VISUALISE we rely on third party products that provide tools individually tailored to the type of document and the task at hand. Whether simple correction annotations, text corrections with a live Text function, version comparisons, and automatic analysis of document differences - all these functions are seamlessly integrated into WAVE without changing the tool. This means we are open to innovations from the market and can react quickly to changing requirements.
The different dashboards go into the depths of active jobs, approval loops, rework jobs, in-out performance and showcase the evolution of the process over time. The ability to slice the views with custom user selectable filters helps to deep dive further. Additional features include custom subscriptions which can be set by the user which trigger email alerts. The possibility to have the dashboards fully integrated with Wave makes them handy to use.
