Automotive & Aerospace Training Software Systems Help in Automating ISO / TS 9001:2000 6.2 Training Control and Tracking Processes for Auto Manufacturers and Suppliers
ISO 9001:2000 (6.2) requires automotive companies to ensure that their employees have the right experience, education, training, and skills to do their work. TS 16949, quality standards which outlines specific requirements for the application of ISO 9001:2000 to the automotive industry, requires documented procedures and an automotive and aerospace training software for identifying training needs and achieving personnel competency. Many automotive manufacturers also adhere to ISO 14000, which incorporates environmental aspects into a company's operations and product standards. ISO 14001 (4.4) requires companies to establish awareness and automotive and aerospace training systems to ensure that people whose jobs could potentially have an environmental impact are competent.
ISO training requirements necessitate effective training control - the process of tracking, follow-up, documenting, and verifying training and managing the training program. As such, training control is a critical part of conformance to ISO standards which can be complied with the implementation of automotive and aerospace training systems.
How can MasterControl Automotive and Aerospace Training Software Benefit Aerospace and Defense Manufacturers?
MasterControl's automotive and aerospace training software is a robust, easy-to-use solution designed to effectively manage the training process and integrate it with other processes critical to ISO conformance such as CAPA, change control, audit, and customer complaints. Here are some of its robust features to help ensure your automotive training management system is always Compliant, Connected, and Complete:
Compliant Automotive and Aerospace Training Systems
Sustained Compliance: MasterControl's automotive and aerospace training systems not only helps ensure compliance with TS and ISO training requirements, but helps sustain it by strengthening the training control process, promoting efficiency, and keeping training documentation always ready for QS / TS and ISO audits.
Increases Efficiency for Sustained Compliance: Automates assignment, monitoring, and verification of training tasks. Users are automatically notified when they have new training tasks in a automotive and aerospace training system. A link points directly into the user's "My Task" box.
Proof of Competency: Automates grading of online exams, which you can use as proof of personnel competency.
Centralized Repository: All training records will be stored in a secure, centralized repository, making it easy to search and retrieve them during a compliance inspection or a customer audit.
Advanced Training Tracking: MasterControl's automotive and aerospace training systems track training tasks by status or history. A document will show as either "in process" or "complete" if tracked by status. The revision or approval history of documents can also be reviewed using the history feature.
Random Exam Questions:Courses that require an exam can be configured so there will be a pool of questions prepared in advance from which the exam can pull questions randomly. This will ensure that a user who has failed the exam will not get the same questions in the same order during his/her second try.
Optional Training Verification:For basic courses that don't require verification, an automotive and aerospace training system offers training tasks to be configured to bypass it, greatly streamlining the process and reducing the burden on supervisors, who typically act as verifiers.
Document's Effectivity Tied to Training Completion: A course can be configured so that the associated document only becomes effective after all required trainees have completed the course.
More Timely Verification: Assigning a "course verifier" role allows sending the verification task to multiple users. When a certain supervisor is not available to verify a training task, another verifier can do it to ensure timely verification via automotive and aerospace training system.
Analytics and Reporting: MasterControl's advanced analytics and reporting capability in automotive and aerospace training system which provides standard and customized reports to show the status of a training program. The system tracks and shows any training deficiencies that might jeopardize compliance. MasterControl includes dashboard, drill-down, and scheduling capabilities.
Revision Control: MasterControl Training provides revision control to ensure that only current training courses are available.
Connected Automotive and Aerospace Training Software
Integrated Quality Management: MasterControl's automotive and aerospace training software integrates the training process with other quality processes for a holistic approach to quality management.
Easy Access: MasterControl automotive and aerospace training software is Web-based so it can connect trainees, trainers, verifiers, and the training coordinator regardless of location.
Integration of Training with CAPA: Seamlessly integrates with corrective and preventive action (CAPA) process for a more efficient and effective system. For example, a CAPA that causes a change in product design or function will invoke training tasks upon approval of the change.
Training Linked to Change Control: If there's any change in a document linked to a required course because of a revised SOP or policy, all affected trainees will immediately receive new training tasks through the automotive and aerospace training software.
Sequencing of Courses: Allows implementation of a progressive training program by sequencing training courses. Once a prerequisite is completed, the next course is automatically launched.
Streamlines Collaboration: Creating, revising, and approving training courses as a team is easier because MasterControl's automotive and aerospace training software provides a collaboration workspace that allows a user to see other people's input, avoiding duplication. A rejected document is automatically returned to the originator for a new task, so rejected packets don't languish in the system.
Integrates with Other Applications: The automotive and aerospace training software can integrate with other applications like Enterprise Resource Planning ERP, Laboratory Information Management System LIMS, accounting, and human resources applications to accommodate departmental needs.
