Is Your Enterprise Software Capable Of Handling Quality & Safety Management?

Most companies have either an ERP or SCM or some other enterprise solution installed, but these solutions inherently lack the capability of managing Safety and Quality. So let me ask you at the very beginning of this Blog, do Safety and Quality management feature into the top priority list of your strategic portfolio? If Yes, then this Blog is meant for you, as you go on reading you will realize how you can turn your Safety and Quality goals into palpable reality, that too with minimum hassles. I believe it is imperative for any Organization to be a corporate citizen and fulfill its obligation to provide product and process, quality and safety. It is important for organizations to view compliance and excellence in Safety and Quality as promoters of long term profitability. For an Organization to be successful in the long term, such issues cannot be neglected, in-fact the attention paid to these aspects reflect the true character of an Organization.
Software applications like the ERP and SCM are more concerned with the quality of finished product, customer service and financial aspects of the business, they genuinely lack the depth and functional coverage of a complete quality or safety management application. These applications can only cover the high level objectives associated with these vital issues, without providing the granular clarity required to improve, leave alone excel in them. However, there are application now which are capable of exploring every aspect od safety and quality, right from compliance requisites to continuous improvement objectives.
Safety of the working environment and Quality of the final product/service are the most important contributors to the overall performance and profitability of an Organization. Safe working conditions have been known to boost productivity of the work force; it is considered the most basic work need by Maslow. The importance of Quality can never be overemphasized it is the most important order winner/qualifier in almost every industry. For some industries maintaining high standards of quality conformance is mandatory just to be able to ship the products. Even if such strict compliance standards are not present the need to maintain a higher standard for Quality is implied in order to achieve competitive superiority.
Having established the need to have high standards of safety and quality, we have to decide on the ways to monitor them. I believe anything that can be measured can be managed; this axiom of management applies to safety and quality as well. We need to understand the objectives and metrics associated with safety and quality, this will enable us to employ the right system to measure and control these vital parameters. Today Organizations are using Information Technology to better understand the implications of such critical issues and also to take corrective actions and practice management by facts.
You can employ our Safety and Quality Management Solution individually or as a part of the Manufacturing Excellence Solution, which also incorporates Equipment Issues and Fabrication Pass down. You can also integrate these applications within your current enterprise set-up, i.e. these applications can run parallel to your ERP and SCM providing a more holistic solution to your safety and quality concerns.
