Friction between line operations and quality assurance teams often leads to lengthy document review times and delayed product delivery. As a result, ensuring high quality and compliance while meeting ambitious production goals can seem like competing objectives. Achieving both requires the right plan, and the right platform.
Production lines are becoming more automated, instrumented and intelligent, and many envision a future of manufacturing that is fully digitized and integrated. But for manufacturing operations and quality assurance teams, that connected future can seem very disconnected from their day-to-day reality. Existing manufacturing software systems – from MRP to MES and MOM to ERP – have failed to digitize the last mile of manufacturing, where paper-based production records still cause unnecessary errors that slow production and prevent finished product from releasing on schedule. It’s time to say goodbye to paper.
In the absence of paper, many of the traditional friction points between manufacturing and quality teams disappear. MasterControl Manufacturing Excellence addresses common quality and compliance pains such as enforcing training, accessing current WIs, and managing deviations and nonconformances by automatically linking and launching these activities and documents in line with your production process – so your operators never miss a beat, and your quality teams have peace of mind.
Getting high-quality products to market quickly is the end goal for all manufacturers. But for companies that use paper-based systems to maintain their production records, the likelihood for data entry and documentation errors is high – very high. MasterControl Manufacturing Excellence helps you eliminate the data and documentation issues associated with manual, paper-based data input. Which means perfect production can be your new benchmark.
The MasterControl Platform is the foundation for complete product quality – connecting applications, documentation and data across your entire product development life cycle, from concept to commercialization.
