M31 - Enhancing Quality Through Improved Quality Reports

Monday, April 30
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: WSCC Ballroom 6B

Level: Intermediate

Division: Aviation, Space & Defense Division

The necessity to keep documents accurate and easy to understand while properly curating an increasingly diverse portfolio of quality control reports requires an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system with suitable quality modules. To meet this demand, our quality department collaborated with a software company to modify the standard quality module of our ERP system. This has enabled electronic tracking of all quality control documents, which in turn simplifies monitoring and analysis, and allows easy access to information for quick interpretation. The immediate impact? Vastly reduced time and effort by the quality department in all aspects of document handling. By publishing all documents in an identical way—using drop-down lists, red lags, check boxes, and other accessories—we nearly eliminated all mistakes. Among the long-term benefits is the ability to run trend analysis on specific parameters.
