Quality Management System (QMS)

BIOVIA’s QMS Mission

  • Reduce our customers’ total cost of ownership and validation by delivering consistently high quality products and supporting validation tools
  • Ensure consistency and documented objective evidence to support internal, customer and regulatory requirements
  • Contribute to Operational Excellence within BIOVIA to ensure high quality sustainable processes throughout the organization

BIOVIA QMS Department

The BIOVIA QMS Department is an independent compliance function with jurisdiction for software quality compliance across BIOVIA and it is mandated and supported directly by the CEO of BIOVIA. All part of Executive Leadership that signs off on projects, releases and QMS.


The BIOVIA QMS is based on standards from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements and guidelines for software development, which inherently include elements from ISO 9000 and IEEE standards, and industry standard from the Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP) guide published by the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE). It also takes into consideration the feedback of customers and employees.

Through mergers and acquisitions, BIOVIA consists of combined companies that had independent Quality Systems. The best of breed from each QMS were incorporated into what is now the BIOVIA QMS. BIOVIA’s expertise in QMS reaches back to 2004 when it was created by Symyx, one of the companies that formed Accelrys prior to the acquisition of Dassault Systèmes.

BIOVIA QMS and Our Customers

Customer requests and recommendations are considered and adopted as appropriate.

For support and product related discussions BIOVIA uses the Dassault Systèmes Support website and BIOVIA User Communities as a communication platform for customers and BIOVIA employees.
