Supply chains are composed of multiple stakeholders. This means multiple agendas, priorities, systems and perhaps also cultures.
This makes quality assurance difficult, especially if efforts are driven by paper, such as:
Prescience enable quality engineers to manage inspection templates centrally. Updates are easily pushed to inspectors and applied going forward.
Prescience allows inspectors to work systematically because checklists are randomly assigned. Managers can measure inspection progress.
All inspection results are logged digitally and accompanied by inspection timestamp and inspector identification for full audit trail.
Ensuring that suppliers submit data as required is often one of the major challenges that prevents effective quality performance measurement.
Having an easy and quantitative approach to identify missing data and suppliers with poor data discipline is key to establishing a lasting performance measurement culture.
This is almost impossible when relying on pen and paper. Even with Word or Excel it can be difficult as users often corrupt data unintendedly.
Prescience prevents users from saving invalid data and provides feedback letting users know why their input is invalid. Similarly, dropdrown input controls ensures that users select their input from a valid list of answers instead of letting them provide free text answers.
As a result users provide correct data the first time. Ultimately, this reduces errors, ease data cleansing and improve overall data quality.
This provides immediate evaluation and allow users to spot obvious typos and, more importantly, help users identify defective components.
This is key to enable swift rework, easier root cause analysis and reduces indirect costs incurred by passing defective parts down the value stream.
