Material Traceability for Serialized Parts
The Nonconforming Materials Rejection Reporting (NMRR) module is now a part of its flag ship product ManuFACT™. The module has been designed to support the requirements of registered quality management systems such as ISO-9000 and AS-9100.
Materials can be sub-assemblies, vendor components, vendor raw materials, in-process assemblies, finished assemblies, and returned customer products. A nonconforming material is any material that does not fulfill its specified requirements.
Non-conformances are a key part of any Quality Management System for manufacturing. If proper attention to conformity is not maintained throughout the manufacturing process, you will eventually end up shipping non-conforming product to your customers. Depending on the product and how it is used, human life maybe detrimentally affected. You will also have to deal with the direct cost of the non-conforming product and possible recalls, indirect cost of liability, brand image and market share loss. These are expensive and can cost the company both time and money.
Conversely, when non-conformances are properly handled, and coupled with other corrective action systems, the result is a mechanism for continuous improvement. This can result in less product failures, increased market share, increased customer satisfaction as they benefit from a better, safer, and a more effective product.
ManuFACT’s NMRR module will help manufacturers give proper attention to non-conformances. The NMRR module takes input from 5 sources to track their root cause and will link them back to vendors, work centers, machines, employees, and various stages of operation. It will allow for the dispositioning of the parts in question with full documentation of the cause and what was done to remedy the problem.
Since it is integrated with other ManuFACT™ modules, Customer Credit Memos, Vendor Credit Purchase Orders, and Manufacturing Rework Job Orders can all be created from within the module. Full traceability is available as the parts flow through the module from beginning to end.
Finally, the data can be exported to Microsoft EXCEL which allows the user to create historical trend metrics and graphics to easily see trouble spots in the production system.
