Advanced digital technologies like the Cloud can be used to eliminate data silos and communication gaps to help companies quickly resolve product nonconformances and other quality issues. Cloud-based QMS solutions aggregate quality records in a single source of truth, providing dispersed teams with convenient access to the latest information. By automating the management of quality information, organizations can apply best practices in document control, training management, design controls, and other critical areas.
To get the most value from a QMS and meet your business objectives, it is important to maintain a tight connection between product and quality information. Product-centric QMS solutions manage linked relationships between quality processes (e.g., engineering changes, CAPAs) and the product bill of materials (BOM) for greater control, traceability, and visibility. With everything connected in a single cloud-based system, teams can easily identify, track, and resolve quality and manufacturing issues throughout the product development process and avoid audit risks.
