Robust Quality Control: How Intelligent Automation of Nonconformance, Equipment and Inspection Management Processes will Save Time and Costs

Whitepaper | January, 2023

Reducing the Cost of Quality (CoQ) is essential for manufacturers both from a regulatory perspective and to keep manufacturing costs low. This requires minimizing non-conformances by ensuring products meet design specifications before they leave the production facilities.

A robust, well-designed quality control process will include the following critical steps:

  • Nonconformance Management: Have in place an automated, data-driven process for identifying and managing nonconformance of both products and processes.
  • Inspection Management: Implementing a world-class product inspection management system that simplifies the product inspection process for input raw materials, manufacturing process, and finished goods inspection as well.
  • Equipment Management: All equipment – including instruments – has to be tested for deviations and corrected quickly to prevent nonconformance. Whenever needed, a CAPA must be initiated based on the severity of variations and establish parameters for future maintenance and calibration for equipment.

CQ EQMS comes with top-notch modules for audit, inspection, document, equipment, and supplier management. Seamless integration between the modules provides greater visibility and empowers quality control and quality assurance teams with data at their fingertips. This can help to improve the outcomes of inspections and effect continuous improvement in product quality.

In this whitepaper, we highlight the role of quality control in manufacturing and why automation, digital transformation, and data- enabled decision-making have become a necessity.
