The Importance of a Robust Quality System

The Importance of a Robust Quality System

Quality has a direct effect on company performance and customer satisfaction. In its most basic definition, quality is manufacturing in conformance to a specification. However, it is much more complex in a manufacturing setting to monitor and control the various variables involved to consistently manufacture to specification.

A quality system can be divided into quality assurance and quality control. Quality assurance aims to risk assess and predict potential issues so as to prevent them before a product manufacturing and delivery. Based on the findings, controls are put in place along the manufacturing process to avoid mishaps. For example, assessing a raw material and supplier before a purchasing decision is made in order to reduce raw material variability, or having a checklist in production that must be filled out by the operator to ensure a step is not forgotten. Quality control are a number of tests in place along the process flow to ensure quality assurance is being met and that the product complies with the specification.

A quality system enforces the use of validated processes and approved materials to meet quality standards. This includes every aspect of a manufacturing process from purchasing raw materials & packaging, validating equipment, training staff, manufacturing, storage and dispatch. A series of controls are put in place at each stage to ensure traceability, consistency and identify the root of a cause early on to put in place corrective and preventive actions. This establishes a system where each step is executed correctly with complete traceable data and allows a business to react to deviation and failure analysis, root cause identification in the process, quarantine and final disposition of the identified product.
