The Point Of Supplier Material Quality
You have extensive investments in your production equipment and processes that ensure you have high quality finished goods. One critical element to ensuring finished good quality is good raw materials coming into your factory.
GSQA extends your incoming material quality practices to your supplier’s facilities. GSQA collects, stores and manages supplier certificates of analysis (COA) data. This ensures that the supplier’s materials or ingredients meet your specification for every lot to every factory. Materials that don’t meet your specification cannot leave your supplier’s dock, preventing these materials from infecting your production processes.
Use the COA data to establish trust, ultimately streamlining production and improving finished good quality.
That is the point of supplier material quality.
That is the point of GSQA.
Every Lot From Every Supplier Meets Your Specifications
GSQA compares your supplier’s COA data to your specification, preventing out of specification lots from entering your factory. This virtually eliminates production disruptions from out of specification materials.
Proactive Statistical Analysis
GSQA uses the COA data to provide advanced statistical analysis for incoming materials, giving insight into your supplier’s capabilities. Both you and your suppliers receive proactive alerts based on Ppk, Cpk and other statistical measures to proactively manage incoming material quality.
Incorporates Third Party Lab Test Results
Whether it is during supplier onboarding, after a SCAR/NCR or part of skip lot testing, GSQA matches third party test results to determine the accuracy of your supplier’s testing capabilities, providing insight into their testing activities.
Comply With Industry Regulations
Whether it is FSMA, ISO-9001, IATF-16949 or other industry regulations, the COA provides lot level evidence that complies with supplier material/ingredient traceability requirements.
