Reduce the Risk and Impact from a Failed Component or Non-Conformance Quality Event with FlexNet Containment Manager
FlexNet Quality helps prevent quality problems from happening in the first place. However, on those occasions when a quality problem is discovered, you need to act swiftly to contain the issue and prevent a "spill" or quality "escape." That's the role of FlexNet Containment Manager. It puts you in full control of responding to and containing a quality nonconformance rapidly and effectively to prevent nonconforming product from escaping your operations, entering your distribution channel or reaching your customer.
When a nonconformance event is discovered, FlexNet Containment Manager lets you hold and contain suspects from raw materials through Work-in-Process (WIP) or finished goods, regardless of where they are in your operations. Interlocking traceability means you can see exactly what products, components or production processes are affected to suspend further activity, preventing the problem from widening or reaching your customers. A graphical user interface lets you monitor the full quality containment process of identification, hold (including future holds), locate, inspect, disposition, release, rework, or scrap until final resolution of the quality issue.
Containment management can be a critical element to help address regulatory compliance requirements, resulting in improved product quality that helps you to achieve and sustain manufacturing operations excellence. Apriso's suite of unified FlexNet applications lets you contain nonconformances and other adverse quality events quickly, wherever they occur across your manufacturing operations.
This workflow shows how FlexNet Containment Manager supports various steps of identifying, containing, releasing or disposing of suspect products, goods and components.
