Non-conformance Management System
Non-conformance reporting is one of the most powerful tools in the quality assurance toolkit. Initiated at every level within an organization and at any point in the process, they are the vehicle we use to document, disposition and resolve day-to-day issues identified during regular business.
Challenges to effective NCR management are often:
A lack of clearly defined review and disposition process
Manual, paper-based methods and can be lost easily and only accessed by one person at a time.
Electronic files transmitted by email fail to clearly identify responsible parties during the disposition process or provide any form of real-time status
Lack of stakeholder ownership causes delays to a quick resolution of problems/quality issues
Organizational culture issues rooted in a negative perception
Additionally, smaller organizations with resource constraints are challenged with consistent execution.
When gaps in the non-conformance process exist, an organization will lack accurate quality system feedback, which results in ineffective trend analysis. An absence of precise data leads to more mistakes, lost revenue, and reduced profitability.
