e1ns.methodsOptimize Methods. Reduce Risks. Secure Quality.

Successful companies react quickly to new requirements and conditions. They adapt quality and analysis methods for product development individually to the current situation.

From requirements management to testing (Design Verification Plan): PLATO e1ns gives you tailor-made methods for the individual development process along with the associated form templates - simply, intuitively, in your web browser. If required, default methods can be customized individually with calculations, additional data and evaluations.

  • Open form design
  • Tailor-made methods for the individual development process
  • Networked methods and consistent data
Why e1ns.methods? Your benefits.
Individual & Adaptable
  • Expand existing standard methods individually through additional calculations, data and analyses.
  • Use of arbitrary calculation models for cost, default rates, etc.
  • Catalogs are adapted for analyses individually.
Simple & Web-based
  • Simple operations - like in Microsoft® Excel®
  • Work in the web browser, no (local) installation necessary.
  • Complexity becomes manageable - use filters, trace relationships and add comments to your data in the form of photos, graphics or links.
Trackable & Communicative
  • Traces describe dependencies between different data.
  • Use of traces within a form or across forms in different system elements.
