We invest in FMEA specialist Skill Software

We enhance our competence in the field of quality management. After the recent acquisition of Böhme & Weihs, we now invest in the company Skill Software. Böhme & Weihs has successfully been working with the French FMEA specialist for 20 years, holding shares in Skill Software since 2000.

Skill Software is based in Saint Pierre de Chandieu close to Lyon and specializes in FMEA software. The Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is used to detect and avoid risks in product development early on. The company's customers include Liebherr, Valeo, Total and Thales.

Skill Software is a close partner of Böhme & Weihs. Their FMEA portfolio is fully integrated into the CASQ-it solution. Shortly after we had acquired Böhme & Weihs, the idea was born to further deepen the successful partnership with Skill Software.

„Our investment is the first step toward further expanding this successful collaboration to the benefit of our customers“,

"The solutions by Böhme & Weihs will significantly support the digitalization of our customers. Skill Software's expertise in FMEA software is essential to this as well," says our CEO Eric Verniaut. "Our investment is the first step toward further expanding this successful collaboration to the benefit of our customers."

"Customers have already benefited from the partnership between Böhme & Weihs and our company. We're happy to intensify it even more with proALPHA now," says Xavier Faes, director of Skill Software.

The FMEA method, also known as risk analysis, serves to detect and avoid potential errors already during the development process. When companies register and assess potential errors already during the development, they avoid control and error correction costs. FMEA is used in many industries, including automotive and aeronautic. CASQ-it FMEA by Skill Software can map the constantly increasing requirements from the international standards AIAG/VDA and the new harmonized procedure according to AIAG/VDA. With increasing digitalization, this trend will also gain significance.

The quality management system by Böhme & Weihs helps our customers to reliably control and secure the quality along the entire value-added chain and all processes. The company provides in-depth process and software expertise in mechanical and plant engineering, the automotive industry, the aerospace industry, and medical technology. More than 30,000 users are currently working with the CASQ-it solution, which includes the FMEA portfolio by Skill Software.
