InfinityQS Whitepaper Prepares Food Manufacturers for the Audit Process
Manufacturing Intelligence and quality software company publishes whitepaper, “In-laws, Outlaws and Auditors: The Guide to Planning, Executing and Surviving the Perilous Business of Audits,” for the food and beverage industry
FAIRFAX, Va. – Sept. 24, 2014 – InfinityQS International, Inc., the global authority on real-time quality and Manufacturing Intelligence, today announces the availability of its new whitepaper, “In-laws, Outlaws and Auditors: The Guide to Planning, Executing and Surviving the Perilous Business of Audits.” Written to help food and beverage manufacturers prepare for the audit process, this whitepaper discusses best practices in creating and executing a compliance plan and details how technology can assist in the process, while also reducing costs, minimizing waste and improving overall product quality. The whitepaper is available for download at http://www.infinityqs.com/in-laws-outlaws-auditors-pr.
Highlights of this InfinityQS whitepaper include:
- Creating a plan for compliance: Manufacturers must take proactive measures to prepare for audits and meet today’s stringent industry requirements. With a quality management system, manufacturers can stay ahead of these rules and regulations by scheduling time-based check intervals and enabling real-time, automated data collection to prevent defects and mitigate recalls.
- Proving the plan works: Because data collected by an enterprise quality system are stored in a centralized repository, it is easy to create reports to verify processes. The ability to create customized reports for auditors boosts credibility and eliminates time-consuming, tedious paperwork.
- Controlling the impact when things go wrong: If a defective product slips through the cracks, manufacturers can leverage quality data to quickly identify, trace and locate problematic goods and minimize revenue loss and reputation damage. These data can then be used to verify, with confidence, that the correct defective product has been pulled.
Michael Lyle, president and CEO, InfinityQS, said, “The number of food recalls has drastically increased over the past few years, which has led to stricter industry and federal regulations and of course, audits. With Manufacturing Intelligence software like InfinityQS ProFicient, manufacturers can reduce risks and proactively maintain compliance all while ensuring that they are producing a high-quality product. We intend for this whitepaper to help food and beverage manufacturers understand the value that a quality management system brings not only to the audit preparation process, but also to the organization’s everyday quest for quality.”
