FMEA Connected.Powered by PLATO e1ns technology

Open and integrated systemsapproach within the product development.

Allows all engineering teams access to all current engineering information. Teams oversee all influences of their own decisions on the engineering and process environment.

Start FMEA via Linkimmediately and without any knowledge of structures.

Our software and its portal offers all employees a simple access to all information - even without any special FMEA knowledge. Links directly to the FMEA input cell are dispatched via email. Thus an introduction to the system structure is not necessary.

Uncomplicated handling via web browser.

All team members work location independent on the FMEA. Each team has an overview at any point in the development process.
