Whilst APS can’t assist with quality control as such, it can be factored into the production process to ensure that quality control is done in a timely manner.
Use APS plan the quality control process
With enough notice, you can set a specific day or time frame to ensure that you have enough team, space, and time for thorough quality control checks, with enough time to rectify any work on the rare occasion that QC isn’t up to standards.
Many leave QC until the very end which can cause major disruptions when you’re working to tight deadlines.
Do any of these sound familiar?:
- More than average number of items not passing checks
- Having to reproduce products that failed the QC
- Urgently purchasing new materials when a batch is short
Your APS should bring you confidence, efficiency, and ease through pre-scheduled time management.
