Make quality your competitive advantage.
A Quality Management System (QMS) designed for manufacturers gives your company the framework needed to monitor and improve performance in all areas. With proper development, management, and attention, it can lead to higher profits by cutting costs related to scrap, rework, returns, and more.

Go Beyond Certification

Your QMS should provide more than a certificate. Processes and software solutions should improve your supply chain, streamline audits, improve employee training and retention, and increase customer satisfaction.

Do you know what your cost of quality is regarding scrap, rework, and warranty? Capturing these costs via your ERP system and flowing them through your cost accounting system will give you that information. As a result, you’ll be able to reduce waste, which will have an immediate impact on profitability.

We will help you deploy a QMS system that will do the above and more!

  • Link scrap, rework, and warranty costs to your non-conformance records to capture even more data related to these failures.

Take corrective actions to achieve defect reduction and continuous improvement.

A methodical approach to problem solving coupled with quality tools and techniques is often the difference between a problem being permanently solved and rearing its ugly head again. It fosters teamwork, employee development, and problem-solving skills, while reducing non-value-added costs like scrap and rework. In addition, it creates an environment where a problem is seen as an opportunity.

When you work with Synergy to implement this strategic approach, you will enjoy all the benefits of doing so while overcoming the following negative scenarios:

  • Corrective Action Reports (CARs) being rarely issued, while real problems are resolved outside of the system in an attempt to keep the process and subsequent records manageable
  • CARs being issued for every non-conformance, which creates such a volume and backlog that none of the problems are solved effectively
  • CAR responses being determined based on a “get this off my desk” mentality, which almost guarantees that the problem will crop up again
Reap impressive results with optimized ERP & QMS systems.

Correct Action Effectiveness

Best-in-class manufacturers are achieving levels of corrective action effectiveness of 98% or better. They approach corrective action in a manner that fosters teamwork and employee development, enhances problem-solving skills, and reduces non-value-added costs.

Lower Inventory & Material in WIP

Inventory and WIP buffers are often put in place, whether planned or not, to give protection against the impacts of recurring defects. A QMS System allows you to collect and then proactively focus on reducing defect levels through analysis and problem solving, allowing the material buffers to be decreased.

No Need to Prepare for Certification Audits

More frequent internal audits ensure you won't need to scramble to be ready for an audit. They should include employees from across the organization so they will understand the value of quality best practices and ensure compliance.
