Does Your ERP Have Integrated Quality Management?
There’s never been a time where being connected has been more necessary. With staff working from “home.” Or, more accurately, from anywhere. Having a business management system that facilitates seamless collaboration and eliminates communication bottlenecks is vital. Furthermore, quality management software integrated with your ERP for centralized data and processes improves documentation, training, security, and reporting. Does Your ERP Have Integrated Quality Management?
In the previous guide, we discussed How ERP Software Prepares Manufacturers for Quality and Compliance Regulations. In this guide, we discuss a few elements that your quality management software should address.
Onboarding new team members during a time of remote work may be difficult if you do not have a system that enables simplified documentation of your business processes and procedures. Your business management system should offer wikis that allow you to document standard operating procedures, work instructions, safety protocols, multimedia for employee training, and manage all quality system documentation requirements.
Every quality and compliance program requires solid employee training and certification procedures. A best-in-class ERP system offers custom attributes on the employee file allowing business leaders to manage employee skills and certifications within a single interface.
Data entry errors can be a pain, and most importantly, time-consuming or even costly to correct. Automation of standard and repetitive business processes helps eliminate these errors and free’s up time for your staff to focus on more productive tasks. Acumatica Cloud ERP’s Engineering change control and connected product lifecycle management applications track change requests, manage engineering change orders, and execute design changes with audit logs. Use the rules-based product configurator to establish standards for custom-configured products.
Data is the heart of every modern business. It is why business leaders should make a solid effort to avoid bad data and data corruption. Barcoding, artificial intelligence with machine learning, and other automation technologies eliminate human error, further improving accuracy across the organization.
