As you can see, it’s everywhere! And, often times, in manufacturing companies, that data is literally everywhere too! It does not have to be. Modern ERP solutions include the functional depth to eliminate non-integrated, legacy quality systems and manually maintained spreadsheets. Often times, quality assurance can be attained through a combination of integrated testing plans and revision controlled, process oriented routings. These systems can also assist in quality control data collection and analysis. A final aspect of the vital nature of integrated quality solutions in ERP is that often manufacturing businesses can achieve ISO compliance with a well-defined process throughout the business from the shop floor and in all aspects of the production cycle.
