Next Generation Quality Management - Reactive to Proactive
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (PRWEB) January 17, 2008
In this Webinar, titled "Next Generation Quality Management - Reactive to Proactive", Simon Jacobson, Senior Research Analyst, AMR Research and Karim Lokas, Vice President of Marketing and Product Strategy, Camstar Systems, Inc. will discuss how manufacturers can leverage a Networked Quality Management approach to achieve proactive "Quality Execution." The webinar focuses on strategic approaches for manufacturing executives.
In recent years, there has been an increasing emphasis on strategic quality management. Companies recognize that the key to business excellence is having true visibility into risk and a reliable, predictable product supply.
Regulatory compliance, time-to-market and cost pressures are driving today's Life Science manufacturers to focus on systems that will help improve product and process quality, increase efficiency and time-to-volume while lowering risk of highly publicized recalls, warning letter activity and consent decrees from the FDA.
The renewed attention on quality has not only exposed the existing gaps between enterprise systems such as ERP and PLM--, but also Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and traditional quality management software (QMS), in addition to the gaps between individual manufacturing sites. Issues centered around design, corrective and preventive action (CAPA), complaints handling and production traceability (DHR) deficiencies continue to pile up, only highlighting the lack of integration between these systems--not to mention attracting increasing amounts of regulatory insight, further increasing risks.
Having the ability to collect accurate, actionable data in real time and building quality and agility into the manufacturing process is a critical step in mitigating supply chain risks and driving enterprise process improvement across multiple manufacturing sites while supporting IT data models from ERP, PLM, MES, and QMS systems. Camstar's next generation approach to merging Quality Management and production execution applications into a common architecture provides a universal data model which lets manufacturers quickly respond to manufacturing non-conformance events as they occur and perform effective root cause analysis with inherent access to all production-related, contextual data.
