Deviations are an inevitable part of manufacturing, but the ability to detect and deal with deviations in real time, reduce the occurrence of avoidable deviations, and limit their impact is made more difficult than it need be with paper or disconnected systems.
Relying on manual, paper-based systems to manage the deviation process in manufacturing hinders manufacturers’ ability to track manufacturing changes, identify quality events, and take corrective action in real time. In turn, this reliance on paper increases the acceptable level of risk in production and practically ensures the occurrence of bottlenecks and downtime.
Read how to leverage manufacturing software with robust digital tools to increase operational visibility and stay on top of deviations so that they don’t turn into corrective/preventive actions (CAPAs), or worse.
