Do You Know What Your Suppliers Ship You?
Chemical manufacturers invest heavily in the equipment used to make their products to ensure finished good quality. Starting a production run incurs significant costs, and plant disruptions from bad materials can cost millions of dollars. Without visibility into supplier material variability and consistency, finished good quality can suffer.
What if you could know, with almost 100% certainty, that the inbound raw materials meet your specifications for every lot from every supplier to every factory?
Why GSQA? Measure Suppliers To Establish Trust.
GSQA provides chemical manufacturers with the data to both ensure that incoming raw materials meet their specifications, and understand how incoming material quality affects production results. These data virtually eliminate production disruptions and provide confidence in finished product quality.
GSQA uses the COA to qualify inbound materials for every incoming lot from every supplier to every production facility. When married with production data, chemical producers gain clear insight into production metrics driven by supplier material quality. These data help you determine which suppliers provide consistent materials, and which ones require scrutiny.
In regulated markets, GSQA automates supplier processes, including audits, non-conformance management and supplier certification. GSQA provides real time supplier focused process visibility and built in supplier focused workflows to improve engagement and ensure compliance. With GSQA, you have the data to measure which suppliers you can trust, and which ones are transactional.
That is the point of supplier quality for chemical manufacturing.
That is the point of GSQA.
