How Do You Measure Productivity?
If you are measured on finished good quality, operations and efficiency, you make decisions with data. You need to make sure that your factory operates smoothly and efficiently, and measure your results in real time. Any information that helps you eliminate disruptions that reduce your margins is worth considering.
What if you could find a way to easily identify which suppliers provided you with materials that resulted in your most consistent production runs?
Why GSQA? Improve Operational Efficiency.
GSQA provides you with the data to improve your operating margins. From a productivity perspective, you will know that any incoming material meets your specifications. This virtually eliminates scrap and lower quality production runs caused by out of specification materials.
GSQA provides you with the metrics that tie your supplier material quality information (COA) to your production information (data from your production equipment). These data relationships determine which material or ingredient characteristics are most important to your production margins, and which ones do not matter.
GSQA also streamlines a number of supplier oriented processes such as non-conformance management (SCARs) and audit and certification tracking. Real time updates eliminate tracking via spreadsheets and email, providing you with an enterprise wide view of supplier quality. This gives you more time to focus on improvement rather than spending time tracking down supplier answers.
Improved production efficiency. That is the point of GSQA.
Data To Drive Operational Efficiency
GSQA provides a supplier material quality database that you can tie to production results. Have empirical data to know which suppliers provide you with materials that drive the best production results.
Inventory carrying costs can be significant. Eliminate quarantines, and therefore excess inventory, based on material quality holds. After going through initial qualification, you can move materials directly into production because you have established a trusted relationship with the supplier.
Improve Production Scheduling
GSQA enables you to know that your supplier’s materials meet specifications, creating trust. Improve production scheduling flexibility by having confidence that you will have the right materials at the right time.
Virtually Eliminate Plant Disruptions Caused By Raw Materials
By knowing that your inbound materials meet your specifications, you can virtually eliminate production disruptions caused by out of specification materials.
