GSQA brings all of your data into one location to reduce disruptions that rob your factory of margin, quality and productivity. By improving productivity, eliminating disruptions or enhancing supplier relationship management activities, your factory can save millions by eliminating waste and unnecessary overhead?
How do you perform root cause analysis on factory disruptions? What activities do you pursue to improve productivity? How do you improve your supplier relationship management?
By tracking lot level material quality data and tying it to production settings, GSQA allows you to see the characteristics that result in both high and low production yields. This enables you to benchmark productivity, and manage the inputs so that your processes are optimized. Instead of relying on intuition GSQA brings you the data to make informed decisions on the causes and effects within your factory.
- What are the input variables and data patterns for those lots which produced a customer return? GSQA ties supplier material characteristics and process settings to production results. This correlation shows the exact conditions which produced the most desired (or undesired) results.
- What material characteristics are most likely to produce goods of the highest quality? Which supplier provides those materials? GSQA tracks the suppliers and their materials to help you determine the best and worst suppliers. This helps you rationalize your supplier base with empirical data on your supplier's performance.
- What was common about the days when the factory had a high scrap incidence? What was my yield when a specific operator was involved? GSQA demonstrates the relationships between material, labor and process that drive high and low yields.
- How is my yield affected by how close the material is to the specification? Which specifications can I broaden because it has no effect on customer satisfaction or yield? By understanding the characteristics that determine a high yield or quality, you may be able to reduce your spend because you may be able to loosen specifications.
- How have my suppliers and their shipments affected my productivity since my last supplier audit? GSQA helps you see non-material related events that may affect supplier material quality.
