Frisco, TX (PRWEB) December 22, 2009
American Unit, Inc., a leading systems integration and application development services firm focused on assisting middle market enterprises, today announced the availability of its Inspection Management and Quality Control add-on module for Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The company, which boasts a strong background and continuing presence in the manufacturing ERP market, is developing a suite of add-on modules that address functional gaps in the Dynamics NAV solution. Inspection Management and Quality Control for Dynamics NAV is the latest module in that suite to enter the market.
The inspection of product and process has been a fundamental element of quality programs since the inception of manufacturing processes. As manufacturing processes become increasingly computerized, with unrelenting pressure to constantly reach higher levels of quality, inspection is becoming ever more important. American Unit’s Inspection Management and Quality Control module addresses this challenge by allowing shop floor inspectors to specify a variety of inspection parameters for each manufactured item. From physical measurements to testing result and everything in between, anything that should be inspected will be inspected and recorded appropriately. By applying sampling techniques and skip logic rules, the inspection process can be sped up to achieve a much more efficient flow of materials while still increasing the overall quality of raw materials used.
American Unit’s Inspection Management and Quality Control add-on module for Microsoft Dynamics NAV delivers key manufacturing process benefits that include more accurate inventory listing with individual item inspection information, reduced sampling time, automatic routing of rejected items back to vendor, reduced shop floor scrap, and use of historical vendor quality data to select the appropriate supplier for specific items. Key features and functionality of Inspection Management and Quality Control for NAV include:
- Automatic inspection list generation at the receiving point
- Use of sampling algorithms to reduce physical quantity inspected
- Use of skip logic rules to avoid unnecessary inspections
- Tests vendor samples and stop to inspect unapproved vendor samples
- Automatic return of rejected items to the vendor
- Creation of a material rejection notice (MRN) for rejected items and automatic delivery to vendors via e-mail or fax
- Determination of appropriate supplier using historical vendor quality performance data
Inspection Management and Quality Control for Microsoft Dynamics NAV also streamlines the inspection of vendor samples and the selection of suppliers for new parts or renewed inventory. Prior to sending a full lot, vendor-provided samples can be inspected according to pre-determined parameters. If the samples fail inspection, the skip logic rule bypasses the entire lot, which is then inspected separately.
By employing statistical sampling and historical data, Inspection Management and Quality Control can help determine the appropriate vendor for a particular item. By relying on this combination of data and modeling, a clearer picture of vendor quality can be achieved, and at a much faster rate.
