When internal or external forces challenge production standards, related processes, specifications or even critical documentation, controls must be put in place to ensure that product quality is not compromised. People’s lives and the manufacturer’s reputation can be at stake, and product irregularities simply cannot occur.
Enterprise software systems on the market today can provide this level of management and control, and in turn, can even improve productivity, reduce production costs, ensure compliance, reduce risk, and more. These tightly integrated, comprehensive systems work to evaluate changes as well as manage, track and record them to ensure product quality. They also provide the necessary level of automated communication to those people who are affected by the change, as well as those responsible for overall product quality.
