Supply Chain Disruptions: CAPA-SCARS

Executive Overview

A disruption can be as minor as a production slow down or as catastrophic as a massive product recall. Disruptions can also be seen as additional steps needed to assure quality or as rework to accommodate lower quality product. Disruptions may also require additional overhead for inventory, and should take into consideration containment costs. All of these disruptions reduce production yield and margins by having to spend extra resources outside of the standard labor and material used to produce your finished goods.

GSQA delivers alerts in advance of a potential disruption, saving time and expense, ultimately improving productivity and production yield. By providing advanced notice of potentially catastrophic production conditions, GSQA is a key component in maintaining your brand identity in the market.

When a disruption does occur, the GSQA Nonconformance Management is used to capture information about the issue, and follow a workflow through to resolution. The NCR module is designed for supplier corrective action reporting (SCAR) and production batch issues (NCR).
