Getting Started: What To Expect from a Manufacturing Quality Platform
When choosing a quality platform
, work with your provider to pin down exactly what you want from the platform:
- What are your goals for a quality solution? Do you hope to gain better insight across multiple facilities? Are you looking to improve compliance, or gain visibility into your supply chain?
- What roles will access the platform, and what are their aspirations and concerns? Consider everyone who will use the solution—including floor operators, quality management, and executives.
- How will you measure the effectiveness of your solution? Which KPIs matter most to you?
- How will you measure ROI?
Set Up for Success
The best way to launch a successful Enact deployment is via a targeted, small-scale deployment. By starting small—one filling or packaging operation, for example—you can experience Enact and build a foundational understanding of how your quality platform can work.
You begin by setting up an Enact subscription
. Then, the in-app Quick Startup enables you to set up a simple data collection right away. You can immediatetly start collecting data and see how Enact works in your manufacturing production environment. When you encounter questions or need help, the Enact Guided Learning Center
provides helpful videos and online tutorials.
You get to experience Enact’s dashboards, discuss feedback from your team, and evaluate the results of your initial setup. In other words, you get to see firsthand what Enact can do for you—and how it can help you extract meaningful business insights from your manufacturing quality data.
How To Start Using Your Quality Platform: Stages for Deployment & Rollout
- Stage 1: Proof of Concept: A focused deployment (on a single line or process) serves as the foundation for your Enact rollout—a blueprint for all other operations in your organization.
- Stage 2: Expand Your Impact: Replicate your blueprint to other lines or across a facility. This provides an opportunity to expand Enact to other products or parts and incorporate additional functionality—such as gauges and Automated Data Collection (ADC).
- Stage 3: Production Rollout: Apply your blueprint to other parts of the facility, lines, processes—and across other facilities in your organization.
