Quality control teams in the manufacturing industry still often check the quality of their production processes with paper and pen. Employees usually have structured checklists at their disposal for this purpose, which they can work through step by step. However, this manual system of quality control checks is sensitive to data loss and inaccuracies, as well as to weaknesses in data evaluation.
This is where digitization offers opportunities for manufacturers to improve auditing processes, process standardization and new product introduction with special quality software tools.
Below we have collected the five most important reasons that speak in favor of a manufacturing quality software tool like Lumiform in the company.
Quality control is one of the four main components of any quality management process, including quality planning, quality assurance, and continuous improvement. Quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) are the essential processes for the success of a product. However, professionals often confuse and mix up these two processes.
A manufacturer needs to be clear about the importance of QA and QC in its quality process. Both are an integral part of the quality management plan, and the effectiveness of project teams depends on everyone involved, including management, to understand the differences well.
Effective manufacturing quality software contributes enormously to project success, but it is likely inadequate and ineffective if not properly understood. It can negatively impact your ability to ensure the product is delivered on time, built by the team within the allotted budget, and meets the customer's requirements.
Both QA and QC are required for the success of a product. When we focus only on QA, we perform inspections, tests, and quality measurements to verify that the results conform to specifications, fit for purpose, and meet stakeholder expectations.
The types of quality control are many, and the technique used should depend on the type of project. The most obvious example of quality control is the inspections and tests performed to verify that a product meets specifications. Exactly which inspection method is used depends entirely on the technical nature of the product being developed as part of the project.
4 examples for QC inspections in manufacturing that can be relevant:
A product life cycle consists of many interdependent processes that must function efficiently. A mistake, inefficient process, or malfunction in one system, even in just one area, can negatively impact the entire production line.
The following are the four most common errors in manufacturing and some tips on how you can counteract them by manufacturing quality software:
