Quality Management (SPC/SQC)

Preventing Quality Issues Before They Occur

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?

The RTS Quality Management Information System (RTS QMIS) on SAP MII creates a strategic advantage in only 8 - 10 weeks by providing:

Predictive Quality Management
  • Comprehensive visibility of real-time quality trending information to address quality issues before they occur.
  • Actionable intelligence to address quality anomalies as they happen, driven by immediate e-mail alerts when quality control limits are exceeded.
  • Ensured “critical to customer” specifications compliance, communicating customized production orders, customers quality information, and testing procedures to the shop floor.
  • Enhanced decision making for raw material production suitability, by allowing visibility to inspection lot test results and providing instant notifications of “quarantined raw material” to shop-floor personnel.
Global and Integrated Solution
  • One single system of record and analytics for quality management, consolidating information from different sources (SAP and non-SAP based) and processes.
  • Increased data transparency & accuracy, automatically recording quality & production information from In-Line/Off-Line quality devices, Historians, PLC’s, DCS’s, LIMS & the business system.
  • Effective quality analysis via standard and custom reports, including Statistical Analysis with automatic calculation algorithms for CPK, Median, Min, Max, Mean, PPM, Standard Deviation, Variance, and much more…
  • Enhanced user acceptance and learning, through interactive role-based dashboards for different staff categories.

The RTS QMIS allows transparency to quality and maintenance data in SAP ERP as well as issues and activities in SAP Quality Issue Management (QIM)

80% of all quality issues are repeat issues. Leading edge companies require the ability to capture, continuously improve, and leverage performance knowledge from lessons learned so that preventive action can be taken.
