Turning Manufacturing Audits into Profit

Ed Deaton | CIMx Software

Audits can either cost you money or make you money. The choice is yours.

In the manufacturing industry, audits are the key factor in determining a company’s continued growth or imminent decline. Audits quantify the success of your team’s efforts by ensuring your shop is up to snuff in every stage of production.

However, the stress and time invested into filing frequent audits can weigh on your team, slowing down production and negatively impacting your bottom line.

Save Resources and Increase Value

The simple solution is to implement a system that reduces auditing time while impressing potential customers into delivering more contracts. Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) are designed to optimize production while automatically collecting the essential data required to complete audits in a fraction of the time of manual audits.

But as you know, it’s not enough to just be compliant in a global market; you need to “wow” your way into new work and onto Preferred Supplier lists. Your shop needs to be the number your customers’ dial when a run absolutely must be completed on time. Audits are about one thing, mitigating risk. Show your prospective customers exactly why they should trust your shop by implementing an MES into your existing workflow.

Reduce your average audit time by 50% when you connect, correct and control every asset, operator and order in an MES designed specifically for your industry.

“We’ve already had eight separate audits in 2018 and every one has been completed in half the time. An audit that should take a full day only takes half a day in Quantum. From an ISO standpoint it’s been great. Every document we make becomes a permanent record and every revision is automatically stored in one system.”
– Ray Swanson, President of Tornik, LLC

MES systems like Quantum track and control production from Engineering through Delivery with Digital Planning, Real-Time Scheduling, Asset Management and Quality Control built into one complete platform. Give accurate timelines and enforce best practices on every job regardless of the unique specifications or complexity of an operation. Your Operators will complete their work faster with fewer non-conformances while automatically collecting the data required for future audits.

Give your best customers a tour of your shop floor to see your competitive advantage in action. The more Preferred Supplier lists you land your company on, the more readily your customers will bring you work and recommend your team to colleagues.
