3 Benefits of ARMATURE Fabric™ Audit and Workflow Management Software for Aerospace and Defense Companies:
1. Flexible Standards Management
From AS9100 to ISO and beyond, it all starts with standards. ARMATURE Fabric makes it easy for you to plug in your industry standards and bring them up through different endpoints throughout the system. You can reference one or more criteria (standards and best practices) from pre-built catalogs, or add your own configurable text. Add ratings and findings to each item, weight ratings to help measure effectiveness, and allow each criterion to support document upload, commenting, and issues/non-conformances. This way, you can collect data and documentation during your audits and tie those artifacts to the specific DOD, NASA, and FAA quality requirements you’re evaluating against.
2. Powerful Auditing Tools
A&D quality leaders can take advantage of our intuitive low-code platform to build audit checklists and assessments, with help from our team as needed. Our system allows you to choose from a number of question types including text (short form, narrative), multiple choice, number, date, and document upload. You can also set a number of options on your questions, such as required, read-only, no-data, data keys, variables, field names, and help. Our software allows you to model your existing forms and checklists, or build new ones from the ground up. Either way is user-friendly and easy to update, so you can make your audit software reflect your quality goals, compliance needs, and organizational objectives—even as they change over time.
When you think beyond the checklist, it becomes clear that effective audits can drive operational excellence.
3. Easy-to-Use Workflow Management Platform
Once you have your standards and audits created in the system, you need a way to automate tasks to keep your quality and compliance initiatives on track. Workflow management (also known as process management) is the engine that brings these activities to life in ARMATURE Fabric. With no coding required, you can schedule and conduct audits, investigate issues, and track parts and supplier performance from within the system. It’s easy to build workflows in ARMATURE Fabric to automate all of your compliance activities—and because ARMATURE Fabric comes equipped with dynamic dashboards for each user, you can keep all users in the loop with automated tasks, alerts, and notifications.
