Simplify Operations, Improve Control and Reduce Errors with FlexNet's Step-by-Step Directive Quality Execution System
FlexNet Quality Execution supports Six Sigma and other manufacturing quality assurance initiatives by letting you build quality activities directly into your production processes and material management flows. This way quality control plans can be implemented and enforced at every step and in every facility of your enterprise, from manufacturing and warehouse to maintenance and other related applications. Apriso's unified approach to manufacturing operations excellence can become a quality advantage that spreads across to each of your production locations.
You can execute virtually any quality operation with FlexNet, collecting data via barcode, connecting to machine or test equipment or manually from the operator. FlexNet provides process verification and single or double e-signature for compliance with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and other regulations for full traceability and genealogy.
Quality processes are executed manually or automatically. If manually, inspection and step-by-step quality instructions can be integrated into the operator's unified interface for production, maintenance or warehouse processes. For example, the last step in the operator's instructions might be to conduct a visual inspection and enter the results (or even take a picture of the finished part) — and then receive clear directions on what to do based on the outcome of the inspection. Any quality defects that are discovered can be marked on a visual depiction of the part or Work-in-Process, which then becomes part of the process history, which can then be included in future reports for continuous process improvement. Step-by-step directed execution is delivered in any form needed, such as in-line check-lists, work instructions, safety instructions (risk phrases and icons) and documents. FlexNet also captures quality tests values automatically by communicating directly with your Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), data historian or test equipment.
FlexNet 's unified approach to quality execution simplifies operations, improves product and process quality, eliminates errors in handling and decision making, and reduces the total cost of quality.
