PTC Windchill CAPA

Corrective action software that manages and improves product quality

Corrective and preventive action (CAPA) software allows you to meet CAPA standards, as well as demonstrate compliance with extensive failure reporting best-practices and CAPA standards including ISO 9000, Six Sigma, APQP, CMMI and FDA 21 CFR Part 820. When failures or issues are encountered, they must be documented, tracked, analyzed for root cause, and corrected or prevented – not just in current products, but in future ones, as well.

PTC Windchill CAPA enables proven best practices and compliance with a wide range of CAPA standards. Industries such as Medical Device manufacturing require rigorous closed loop processes to control both internal and external quality issues and to monitor the health of the quality management system itself. As an integral PTC Windchill module, PTC Windchill CAPA can utilize core PTC Windchill features such as change management to ensure that different teams throughout the organization are coordinated and involved in correcting and preventing product errors.
