Managing Access to Your Internal Engineering Documents

Simplify Engineering & Supplier Workflows for Better Quality Assurance

How confident are you that your internal users and external vendors /contractors are consistently using the most current and correct company process spec or test procedure? What if you could provide and measure usage by user, team, project, vendor or contractor?

Our solution provides:

  • Controlled, segmented distribution of your engineering documentation for global collaboration between internal teams and suppliers/contractors
  • Mechanism to improve supplier compliance, reducing risk and rework
  • Better visibility into existing international standards, diminishing internal standards development costs
  • Automatic alerts of critical changes or pending Engineering Change Proposals (ECPs) to improve quality and provide opportunities for greater innovation

IHS Solutions for Engineering Excellence

Overview of IHS Engineering Solutions

Every day, engineers and other technical professionals rely on a wide range of knowledge to improve operational performance, reduce risk, and drive innovation.

Companies have spent millions on information management systems to capture information needed by engineers, scientists and researchers. Yet technical professionals are still drowning in a sea of internal and external content, little of it organized in a way that helps them drive productivity or innovation. Worse, some of the best information in those systems is never found by the engineers that need it most.

IHS helps organizations accelerate productivity, improve problem solving and innovate ahead of competition by giving engineers and other technical professionals access to relevant knowledge – inside and outside the organization – and advanced research and problem-solving tools.

See tabs at left to learn more about IHS Engineering Solutions for Standards Management, Engineering & Technical Reference, Analytical & Problem-solving Tools, and accessing Internal Knowledge.

Standards Management

Effectively manage internal and industry standards across the enterprise

Today’s complex engineering environments demand a new level of engineering excellence that hinges on having ready access to trusted engineering knowledge, standards and specifications. Industry studies suggest that more than 40% of an engineer’s time is spent just gathering information, instead of applying that knowledge to value-added activities.

IHS standards management solutions uniquely help companies:

  • improve access to and utilization of internal and industry standards
  • streamline knowledge transfer within the organization and with suppliers
  • turn wasted time searching into value-added activity
  • reduce operational expense
  • minimize risks and ensure compliance
