Eylean Launches First IATF-Compliant Software for Automotive Industry



The first IATF-compliant project management software, designed specifically for the automotive industry, introduces a range of tools for quality and performance tracking to reduce manual work and streamline the manufacturing process. 

Eylean, a project management SaaS provider, has introduced the first software, compliant with the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) standards, which serves as guidelines for automotive manufacturers worldwide. The product will introduce KPI tracking, automated auditing, log revision and other tools designed to simplify process management in the automotive industry.

The IATF requirements help ensure product quality during the development process, however, up until now, they had to be validated manually by the assigned quality control officers. The software, developed in collaboration with the Illinois Tool Works (ITW), a global manufacturer of automotive fasteners, will provide a range of new functionalities to better streamline workflows, track the process and implement necessary changes faster.

“The automotive industry uses Agile project management tools all the time, however, there was no software available in the market with industry-specific tools to assist teams in meeting goals set by the IATF,” said  Kamile Vitaite,  Chief Sales Officer  at  Eylean. “When ITW approached us with the request, we were thrilled: listening to our customers is one of our core values, which inspires us to continue developing our product to better fit the needs of the client. In addition, by adapting our software to the ever-changing requirements, we can offer our software application services to a wider range of industries.”

Eylean’s new tool is specifically designed to evaluate how the product fulfils the IATF requirements throughout the three development stages: Product Development, Product and Process Validation, and Product and Series Trial. The software enables to better plan and perform quality checks and audits throughout all of these stages without a glitch. For companies in demanding industries like automotive, even the smallest hold up could result in significantly increased costs.

Quality assurance safeguards are integrated within the project management tools, enabling managers to keep track of key performance indicators (KPIs). This will allow them to stay up to speed with the overall progress as well as stay focused on the current tasks at hand.

“Eylean is a lifesaver when it comes to IATF compliance audits and data collection,” said Manuel Huebner,  Team Manager  at ITW. “It’s now easy to add timestamps and signoffs for specific quality milestones as well as for checking log levels, which has saved us an incredible amount of time. Since it’s all integrated into one tool, it makes the collaboration in the production line much more seamless.”

The newly-launched software will enable the automotive industry to ramp-up processes across teams, departments and even regions. Reducing the heavy manual workload will enable more manufacturers to stay in tune with the IATF quality standards and reduce the overall costs.
