INCOSE Conference Nov 2010 Whitepaper – Effectively Managing Compliance

Corporations developing large complex products face a lot of challenges. Innovative products need to be market ready in time, in budget and with world class quality. Optimally suited processes are an important asset in meeting these goals. Being able to efficiently prove the compliance to a number of market relevant standards is an additional competitive advantage for organizations. Closely integrated process definition, implementation and PPQA activities enable organizations to reach these goals in a cost effective way. The key is to map the defined and implemented processes against those standards where compliance needs to be proven. Seamlessly integrated process management and PPQA tools will support organizations in implementing this approach.
