How are you ensuring continuous quality improvement across the entire product life cycle? How fast are you able to respond when a quality issue arises? Does Operations have real-time visibility to quality trends?
Quality management is not just about inspection activities and “after the fact” reviews to implement corrective actions. It’s about enabling and optimizing the quality strategy deployment with real-time actionable intelligence to trigger Corrective and Preventative Action (CAPA) from non-conformance production.
Capturing data manually, analyzing it once the product has been manufactured, and failing to comply with customer’s “critical to quality” parameters, increases the level of scrap, rework, re-inspection and cost. All of these failures are the difference between “best in class” and “laggards” in quality management systems and manufacturing excellence.
So often companies have well-established inspection procedures, but without a holistic quality solution that integrates data from the shop floor with the comprehensive QM capabilities of SAP ERP and the new SAP Quality Issue Management (QIM) to handle deviations, a closed-loop holistic quality management system landscape cannot be achieved.
So, how can you boost your customer satisfaction, reduce scrap and empower manufacturing personnel with real-time automated information on the shop floor to address quality issues as or even before they occur?
