Verification and Validation

Many different factors can slow down your product development and the associated release processes: Quality standards which may differ by customer, region or product, for instance. Or the involvement of internal and external stakeholders, manual validation processes, incomplete or inconsistent data.

cenitCONNECT APM resolves these issues:
by ensuring data consistency and quality throughout your product development process: Defined criteria are queried within workflows and tasks. Specific sub-processes can be triggered and digitally handled as needed.


  • Faster, more efficient release processes 
  • Validation no longer has bottleneck effects on product creation

What can cenitCONNECT Advanced Process Management do for your business?

Our software combines all the advantages of digital, collaborative project management with the capabilities of flexible process management. Now, your task handlers can collaborate throughout your end-to-end product creation processes. By building bridges in data processing, this even works in integrated system environments because as an open software, cenitCONNECT APM is not limited to specific technologies.

Let your process managers model any and all PLM-related processes, e.g. in engineering change management, contract engineering or engineering-related product creation. These tasks do not require IT skills and nothing needs to be programmed: Each use case is configured and process modeling is based on templates. Complex processes can be subdivided into sequential and/or simultaneous sub-processes.

Ad-hoc changes such as additional tasks, team substitutions or milestone modifications can be managed easily. If validation shows that an adapted process is better than the previous version, it immediately becomes the new template. Our advanced business process management solution is the perfect combination between standardized templates and the agility you need to be able to respond to unforeseen events at any time.

Quality assurance of processes, data and collaboration in product creation is supported e.g. by checklists, automated validation and target deviation alerts. cenitCONNECT APM consistently automates routine activities and customizes user interfaces for specific roles and tasks: That’s how we ensure maximum efficiency in process management, project management and task processing.

cenitCONNECT offers you the ideal tool for managing your PLM status and taking new steps in innovative product creation – it will be a game changer for the way you do business!
