Advanced Lithium Power Selects Dyadem for Quality Lifecycle Management of its Clean Technology Solut



by Lenny Case

Dyadem and Advanced Lithium Power (ALP) today announced that ALP’s automotive Energy Storage Systems will be designed and production tested using Dyadem’s Stature Quality Lifecycle Management (QLM) platform. Stature allows ALP to conduct its quality tests in a collaborative workspace and to proactively improve designs based on lessons learned. This ensures that defects that could hamper production and performance are designed out during the development process.

Advanced Lithium Power is a leading provider of innovative Lithium Ion Energy Storage Systems for the coming generation of low-emissions automobiles. The world’s automobile manufacturers have chosen Lithium Ion battery packs to power new hybrid electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. ALP’s proprietary technology for cell-balancing, control, and thermal management allows for battery packs with unprecedented energy, safety, and durability.

Dyadem is the market leader in Quality Lifecycle Management and Risk Lifecycle Management solutions, helping discrete and process manufacturers manage quality and risk in their processes. Stature QLM is a Web-based platform, with modular applications that allow discrete manufacturers to fill the voids left from traditional Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) applications. Many of today’s PLM systems fail when it comes to ensuring product and process quality. Most companies have rudimentary systems in place that do not automate quality controls and do not unify all facets of the organization or offer visibility into errors found post-production.

As a supplier to the automotive industry, ALP views safety and quality as the lifeblood of the company. ALP recognized that robust quality lifecycle management software like Dyadem’s Stature platform would not only help it maintain high safety and quality standards, but also its competitive edge.

“In our industry, product safety and quality are absolutely paramount,” said Lorne Gettel, ALP’s President & CEO. “We have the opportunity to get it right from the start and a solution like Dyadem’s Stature will ensure that safety and quality are an integral part of all our products. Stature will allow us to take advantage of information learned during initial design and subsequent production to continually design better products to meet the needs of our customers.”

“Advanced Lithium Power is approaching production the way every discrete manufacturer should – managing safety and quality throughout the lifecycle. Finding errors at the beginning of production is exponentially cheaper than trying to correct mistakes once a product is off the line,” said Kevin North, President and CEO, Dyadem. “Our Stature QLM platform can be used by large global manufacturing organizations in the Fortune 500, or by smaller organizations using our modules to attain specific quality performance metrics. Everything is configurable based on a company’s ultimate goals and requirements.”
