Best quality systems will help manufacturers comply with all health and safety guidelines in the workplace and thus avoid big fines and other penalties that can result from non-compliance. To this end, the right manufacturing quality application is able to collect all applicable data from integrated systems to monitor workplace safety and prevent any potential workplace hazards.
The right solution also facilitates the generation of reports. The system should also enable manufacturers to design their own testing procedures for incoming materials to make sure that they meet all the requirements, starting with the quality of raw materials and spreading throughout the entire manufacturing process.
Added values to the enterprise with MSF QM are reducing scrap, waste, warranty claims, and rework, having a record of every single defect, and enabling full traceability.
And also, MSF QM ensures, having elimination of papers, supports business improvement initiatives to realize the right first time, has improved product quality through reports/analysis, and in terms of reducing the cost of critical quality issues.
By integrating Quality functions into MSF, enterprises have real-time visibility into quality and eliminate the time entering redundant data and logging in and out of disparate systems.
When an operator/technician on the shop floor encounters a discrepancy, they are able to initiate the non-conformance within the electronic work instruction, simply by stating what happened or what went wrong within the same single glass view on the shop floor, without having to log in-and-out of multiple systems or enter redundant data that is already noted in MSF MES.
And from there, corrective actions can be created and executed in real-time. The ability to have these corrective action functions within MSF is especially beneficial in complex discrete manufacturing environments where unplanned events, discrepancies, and engineering changes can and do occur often.
MSF with integrated Quality functions not only saves everyone’s time but also promotes a Proactive versus Reactive quality environment, that can actually drive down your cost of quality. MSF Quality module has functions also in the existing supply chain by connecting to materials management, production planning, warehouse management, and other logistics processes.
MSF Quality module ensures materials in warehouses via inspecting incoming material as it arrives at the facility and in manufacturing operations, where the quality of in-process items is checked during the manufacturing process and finished goods are inspected before they reach the warehouse.
MSF quality module provides also an advanced quality control function that is a structured process aimed at ensuring customer satisfaction with new products or processes. Quality control setting in MSF has different parameters which can be put in based on the factory engineering needs.
During the production in process, MSF collects all quality data including scrap and rework with their causes. Then it can be taking an action to reduce scrap or rework. Thus, MSF gives good opportunities to make a better quality product for customer satisfaction.
