Overall Satisfaction with Arena PLM and QMS

It helps with BOMs and change orders. Keeps everything nice and organized. I am able to easily reference quality documents and processes, link part numbers and suppliers, train to updated procedures and work instructions, and create easy to navigate change requests and change orders. It really helps to use this product when lots of projects are ongoing simultaneously.
  • It is easy to update BOMS in Arena
  • It is easy to write NCR's and tie them into any other item or process in Arena
  • Makes it easy to track level 1 training.
  • The Deviation feature is difficult to use. If there is a deviated document, it should be available to grab from the pulldown menu the same way regular revisions are.
  • Sometimes the pages reload over and over again
  • Sometimes, when I have multiple quality process windows open at once, the page refreshes to display the content of a different NCR than the one I submitted just now.
  • Easier product developement
  • Faster processing of quality issues
  • Easier BOM updates
  • Price
  • Product Usability
  • Prior Experience with the Product
The price was right when adopting this service to be used at the company. Also, the features that allow for optimal organization makes it easier to manipulate and revise documents and processes without stepping on other people's toes. Our administrator had already used this at a prior company and understood the tangible benefits we'd get by adopting this service.
Although I was not part of the implementation team, I was counted on for feedback on it's usability. It took some time to port over the information from the old system, but it was worth effort. item history is easy to look up now, and the team is very satisficed with the results.

It allowed us to stay in business while while we had issues with the servers. It makes organization easy! It makes communication with team members a breeze. the audit trail is a nice feature which allows you to assess the history of a document and or process. Easy to assign training.
