Continuous Improvement within Your Digital Landscape.

Change Management Software

If your company needs to document the Engineering Change Control (ECR) process, and especially if you are a medical device manufacturer with obligations to maintain FDA mandated files, such as:

  • Design History File (DHF)
  • Device Master Record (DMR)
  • Design History Record (DHR)

Keeping track of all that data without integrated change management software can be an arduous time consuming headache at the very least.

Total Lean Management software has all the tools you need to make quick work of managing this data and keeping it organized, accessible, and easily exported/Printed when needed.

The Connections of Change Management

This feature in the Change Management module is a perfect example of building for the real world flexibility you need to have control over what a Total Lean Management (TLM) Process looks like in your quality management system software.


This very simple interface allows you to display only the links that are needed for this project, while giving you the flexibility to customize the links for each individual project as well.

Document Management Software

TLM Document Control software leverages the effort spent on your company’s documentation and elevates it beyond just quality and compliance into a Total Lean Management system.

Managers, process owners, or upstream QMS users can now save time, prevent errors, reduce risk and control variation by using TLM Document Control software to streamline the creation and delivery of critical documents to the downstream consumers of this important information.

Accessible via the desktop or web app access from either on-site or cloud hosted installations, TLM Document Control Software delivers the features needed at your company to manage what is arguably the nervous system and life blood of your organization, the documents that represent your company’s knowledge  base.

Inventory Module

The Inventory module in Total Lean Management software provides the foundation for all the other material management modules to ensure all the activities related to your parts can be managed in one integrated solution. 

From design and into production, TLM supports the variety of activities needed to include:

  • Design Status controls.
  • Control Plans.
  • Approved Inspection templates by type and revision.
  • Approval controls.
  • Work Order Templates.
  • Linked Documents.
  • Linked suppliers.
  • Cost Information.

Events, Tasks, Action Plans and The TLM Checklists.

The checklist is arguably the king of all quality management system tools, as the ease of creation, impact on quality, and ability to help employees perform tasks correctly, in the correct sequence puts this quality tool on the 1st place pedestal without question.

For this reason you will find most TLM modules are supported with TLM Events, Tasks, or Action Plans and the system wide TLM Checklist, which earned a spot in the TLM logo.

Equipment (CMMS / TPM) Calibration

When production or testing equipment plays a role in your final product, it is critical to keep that equipment calibrated against a dependably-known and unvarying measure.

With repeated use, all equipment degrades with respect to its accuracy and precision, and getting the timing right for maintenance and calibration activities makes a huge difference in avoiding non-conformances as well as managing resources and reducing costs.

This powerful quality tool is available throughout the software in order to provide a quick control mechanism to ensure tasks and action plans are completed.

FMEA/ /Control Charts/Quality Tools

In today’s world, ensuring high levels of quality is imperative for a company to succeed.   Total Lean Management (TLM) Software comes complete with the quality management system (QMS) software tools you need to identify and mitigate risk, reduce costs and eliminate waste thus ensuring quality is addressed at each stage of the New Product Introduction (NPI) process to include:

Audit Management Software

TLM Audit Management software simplifies compliance, ensures your organization is always ready for the next internal or external audit, and establishes the insights needed for continuous improvement.

  • Create efficient audits based on risk appropriate level of detail and Total Lean Management Agile audit cycles.
  • Keeps records centralized and speeds up the audit process.
  • Link your internal procedures to the sections of standards being audited for rapid compliance insight.

Contact Manager Software

The beauty of TLM is that we recognize the solutions you need today are going to have to play nicely with the solutions you might already have in place, or will be forced to purchase in the future. The most common examples of this real world challenge are ERP data, Accounting, and CRM data.

Yet almost all of your quality system work flows are likely to need access to other databases and TLM provides a foundation for building an integrated digital landscape. This integration with your existing or future systems can leverage the data you already have in categories where you might be forced to incorporate software that can address your unique business needs.

Purchase Orders

TLM Purchase Orders lets you integrate your approved suppliers in TLM with the materials or parts they are approved to supply, as well as minimum quantity or sales order-driven purchasing triggers from those modules in TLM. Purchase Orders also allow integration with QuickBooks or other ERP systems in order to improve the quality system functionality that many finds is lacking in a lot of ERP systems.

With TLM Purchase Orders you can:

  • Link to your Approved Supplier list in Contact Manager.
  • Import ship to and bill to information.
  • List carrier, terms, and account numbers.
  • Track Lot and Serial Numbers.
  • Links to Receiving Inspections.
  • List carrier, terms, and account numbers.
  • Make partial receipts.
  • Integrated Budgeting.

Metrics and KPIs

One of the most challenging tasks a company has is to establish the best Key Performance Indicators that will help them gain insights for continuous improvement. The best approach to this task is to subject it to the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle with the ability to change the raw data collected when further insight is gained about the data needed for the KPI that measures the progress of a particular goal.

Work Orders

The TLM Work Order Software module has plenty of features to help you manage whatever level of detail your operations require that add value to raw materials or components and keeps track of everything related to doing this work.

Once set up, operators can simply scan in and out of jobs and TLM keeps track of work order activities to include multiple operators on jobs simultaneously.

Equipment (CMMS / TPM) Calibration

When production or testing equipment plays a role in your final product, it is critical to keep that equipment calibrated against a dependably-known and unvarying measure.

With repeated use, all equipment degrades with respect to its accuracy and precision, and getting the timing right for maintenance and calibration activities makes a huge difference in avoiding non-conformances as well as managing resources and reducing costs.

Risk & Opportunities

Whether from regulators, shareholders, or the need to  address the guidelines of ISO 31000 and ISO 14971, the pressure to implement a formal, well organized risk management program has never been greater.

The TLM Risk & Opportunities module in TLM provides your company with a robust, yet flexible platform of risk management tools that are integrated throughout the software enabling risk management  implementation that’s just right for what your company needs.

There is Only One Type of Quality Management System


Over the last 20 years TLM has discovered a very basic truth when it comes to information management systems such as your eQMS, no two companies have the exact same needs.

In fact, the two biggest risks in the software selection process is either selecting software that is not flexible enough to manage information that is unique, and important to your workflow, thus forcing work arounds, or other concessions that effectively add waste to your business.

The other mistake is getting stuck with comprehensive, but inflexible systems due to their web based cloud hosting design, which forces a one size fits all approach to meeting customer needs.

And while one size might fit some, it might not fit all your needs when in the long run your understanding of those needs evolves and improves.

Total Lean Management Software, by definition, recognizes this fact, and addresses it through a dual technology, upstream / downstream user landscape approach to meeting the needs of both your upstream and downstream user types.  This is combined with our tiered approach to addressing newly discovered customer needs, making sure the software works in alignment with your business systems the day after your purchase, and for all the years ahead.

These measures include:

Custom fields

Allows you to adapt the software to your company’s terminology.

System Settings

Allows you to choose which features are applied to your process.

Rapid update cycles

Incorporating employee feedback into the continuous improvement cycle creates a synergistic effect on moral, engagement, and productivity.

Development Projects

This capability provides insurance that your system will never leave you stuck after discovering unknown needs after implementation.

High levels of interlinking

By implementing and combining modules in way that might be unique to your business or work flows.

World class customer support

Evolution is a team effort, and the whole team behind TLM enjoys helping companies comply with regulations, manage risk, continuously improve, and maintain a steady growth rate.

Help Files can be Linked to your Controlled Work Instructions

This unique TLM feature allows you to link individual screens in TLM to your own controlled procedures or work instructions for that area of the software (if needed).
