More Effective QRC Management Systems Are Being Deployed
Quality, Risk, and Compliance (QRC) Management Systems are integrated software applications that provide manufacturers with an effective closed-loop product quality management system across manufacturing and its supply chains.
Consumers and retailers continue to expect faster and better service and higher and more consistent product quality at increasingly lower cost. Governments continue to enact new regulations to protect public health and safety. This intense competitive and regulatory pressure is driving companies to seek new ways to maintain margins, ensure more consistent product quality, and create a pervasive and effective culture of innovation.
Companies are placing renewed emphasis on designing and deploying more effective, enterprise-wide, closed loop product quality management systems that integrate all supplier, producer, and retailer operations and supply chains. A typical system integrates all processes involved in product quality management and includes applications that manage documents and document content, change control, equipment, internal and external auditing, employee qualifications, product quality, suppliers, compliance, risk, non-conformance, customer complaints, and CAPA.
This in turn is requiring companies to re-examine traditional organizational structures and business processes. This study provides an in depth analysis of the QRC market from both a supplier and end user perspective, including current and future key issues impacting this market. Some strategic issues covered include:
- What are the key market trends and drivers in manufacturing and what are their impacts on QRC systems functionality?
- How can suppliers increase their value proposition?
- What functionality and deployment strategies should end users be considering?
