Today, many manufacturers have quality management systems (QMS) that only address quality at a functional level. The result is a lack of full end-to-end visibility or common use of best practices to optimize quality processes across the organization. Quality Management provides an effective and efficient QMS to enforce common quality processes, support global and local regulatory requirements and manage all quality events across the enterprise.
In many industries, such as Healthcare and Life Sciences, ensuring regulatory compliance is business-critical. Compliance Management helps ensure proper product approvals and certificates in support of business sustainability as well as product safety and effectiveness.
Global operating companies must ensure materials compliance to regional environmental directives. With Compliance Management, compliance managers can implement a well-defined process for requesting, reviewing, and approving materials compliance. Product compliance can be assessed and documented to meet material regulations.
Quality and Materials Compliance helps:
- Extend compliance data to a broader audience, allowing for more effective decisions and awareness
- Integrate supplier declarations early into the product development
- Design in material compliance and monitor in real-time
- Establish end-to-end traceability during the development process that can be leveraged for impact analysis
