Why Track Lots?
The market expects you to know where your products went, and which supplier’s materials were used to make your products. Regulations and standards such as FSMA, ISO-9001 and IATF-16949, require inbound material traceability and transparency for every lot from every supplier to every plant, and visibility to every lot that was produced from those materials.
If multiple systems manage this information, it becomes a very manual, expensive process to deal with recalls or complaints. Global supply chains and distributor/broker relationships make finding this information nearly impossible.
How many different systems do you have to access to get this information?
Why GSQA? Simplify Traceability Across The Enterprise.
GSQA provides a simple solution to track incoming lots and shipments, providing full supply chain transparency. Suppliers enter or upload shipment and lot COA information into GSQA, providing real time visibility. Quickly assign materials to finished product batches using drop-down menus, providing supply chain transparency.
GSQA customers can also track multi-level supply chains to enforce compliance beyond their immediate visibility. This includes co-manufacturers and distributors. Whether it is a nuclear fuel rod or a child’s toy, you can rest assured that you maintain full supply chain visibility. GSQA prevents issues that could damage your brand because of poor quality or supply chains infected with out-of-specification materials.
That is the point of material traceability. That is the point of GSQA.
Every Lot From Every Supplier To Every Factory, Instantly
GSQA collects COAs from every supplier to every factory, which you can then tie to your production runs across your factories. Leverage your existing information to provide a fully transparent traceability solution.
If you need to track your suppliers’ suppliers, GSQA can do that. This includes both your direct external suppliers, as well as material transfers between facilities.
GSQA allows you to quickly find critical information about inbound shipments from any supplier to any factory, globally. This eliminates geographic inconsistencies, and provides a single source for instant access from any location.
Eliminate Data Silos
ERP, MES and PLM systems typically house supplier traceability information. Consolidate that information into GSQA, and extend it across your global operations as well as to your suppliers.
