How do you prevent product recalls and ensure regulatory compliance?
As production rates increase to meet consumer demands, manufacturers are faced with high volumes and low margins while maintaining high quality. But how can manufacturers ensure optimum product quality while maintaining production output and improving customer relations? What impact do product recalls have on brand reputation and production costs? Many manufacturers are looking for proactive, real-time quality management processes and software applications to facilitate continuous improvement and carve out a sustainable competitive advantage. Integrating the processes and tools for quality management with production operations can yield exceptional results.

Quality Check Solution
Built on the MES TrakSYS™ platform from Parsec Corp, ITI Group’s (formerly Cimlogic) Quality Check Solution gives manufacturers real-time visibility of quality issues to improve yield, reduce production waste and avoid heavy fines associated with poor quality:
- Instant validation of quality checks to ensure quality management by exception – requiring less labour hours
- Manage quality documents such as SOPs to empower operators and promote efficient quality execution
- Incorporate automated workflows into manual tasks and activities so quality is not compromised
- Receive real-time notifications of non-conformance events to drive corrective action
- Validate the accuracy of data at the point of collection to reduce COPQ (cost of poor quality)
- Leverage electronic records and digital audit trails for regulatory compliance
“With TrakSYS we have the capability to understand our efficiency development opportunities at a granular level. Once identified and prioritised, we can create programs for improvement and develop tools within TrakSYS to help us remain in control. We spent about six months on the planning, and one month on implementation. The system was installed in January, and by February, TrakSYS was already providing us the data we needed.”
