An Automotive or Aerospace Corrective Action and Preventive Action System is designed for the overall efforts to investigate and correct quality issues to prevent recurrence in the automotive and aerospace industries. It is an important requirement for aerospace and automotive manufacturers and related engineering firms, suppliers, and contractors to be ISO certified. Both ISO 9000 and ISO 14000 require an aerospace CAPA system / automotive CAPA system to correct nonconformances, prevent their recurrence, and help improve overall product quality.

Companies in the aerospace and automotive industries are constantly striving to improve customer satisfaction and promote efficient business practices. Both these factors help in correcting problems that financially impact the company's overall profits. Thoroughly analyzing problems has brought attention to the fact that there is usually inadequate documentation of the actions taken for resolving these problems.
MasterControl aerospace and automotive CAPA software caters to the most basic needs of a CAPA program. With MasterControl, management is better equipped to document actions taken within a CAPA for a continuous quality improvement plan. The MasterControl aerospace and automotive corrective action software system is entirely web-based which enables authorized users to update, approve and electronically sign off documents, which are then available for the implementation of a CAPA program. Legacy systems may be cost-effective initially but in the long run, the entire mechanism of successfully executing a CAPA program is completely ruined because of inconsistencies in documentation. This is the reason MasterControl provides a formal aerospace and automotive corrective action system which helps in compiling documentation that identifies nonconformities in the processes, focuses on the root cause behind these problems, and helps in providing possible remedies to make sure the same issues don't occur again.
With MasterControl's aerospace and automotive corrective action (CAPA) software system users can document step by step each process that is taken for corrective and preventive actions. The online repository provides the investigation and solution of CAPAs that also satisfy the FDA and ISO regulatory requirements.
Paper-based or hybrid CAPA software systems are incapable of completely connecting quality processes with each other. Typically, a CAPA program is launched right after an audit is completed. The audit results can help in identifying risks which are translated as a corrective action to apply to the processes. This entire cycle of events calls for some level of automation. Management relies on flawless execution of the cycle so that issues are managed without any delay. The MasterControl aerospace and automotive corrective action system is designed to bring transparency to the entire cycle of audit, risk assessment, and CAPA automation so that management is more equipped to eliminate issues without any loss of data, capital, and various other resources.
Legacy systems usually only offer inadequate analytics and reporting tools for analyzing problems and are often only capable of deriving ineffective remedies that end up being implemented in the business. In the long run, management faces irrevocable losses as a consequence of poorly analyzed problems and their solutions. This is where MasterControl provides companies with state-of-the-art analytics and reporting tools that cover the minutest details of the investigation procedure for issues that occur in the business. Management is able to assess and track the root and other causes of the problem. All the relevant data is tracked and automatically entered into the CAPA forms which reduces the chances of errors that may occur through manual data entry. The same information is then used for determining the symptoms and identifying the fundamental cause of the problem. On the basis of the analysis, management is better able to plan and implement procedures that eliminate occurrences of issues in the future. Moreover, MasterControl aerospace and automotive corrective action software provides for the generation of various reports that reflect the true state of the company's business.
Aerospace and automotive companies require manufacturing products that are safe and reliable. This is the reason products go through several rounds of rigorous testing to ensure optimum endurance to any safety hazards that may take place during their usage. Regulatory entities like FDA and ISO have devised specific sets of standards that serve as the guidelines for these companies to follow during the manufacturing of products. MasterControl's automotive and aerospace corrective action and preventive action software effectively manages the corrective action / preventive action process and integrates it with other processes critical to ISO 9000 / AS 9000 certification, such as change control, audit, and customer complaints. With MasterControl, companies no longer have to worry about compliance with FDA and ISO regulations. Our software ensures that you are able to attain and sustain compliance by manufacturing products that are safe to use because they are manufactured by companies adhering to best business practices.
