Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler recently spoke with Jason Spera, CEO and Co-Founder, Aegis Software, a global provider of Manufacturing Operations Management Software (MOM). Spera discussed the pressures to “choose” between reducing costs and delighting customers is not mutually exclusive. Best-in-class manufacturers recognize there is no tradeoff; they take a holistic approach to quality management that allows them to excel in both arenas.

Spera insisted while reaching zero-defects and peak performance is important, manufacturers also need to reduce recalls, supply chain interruptions, and downtime to strategically adapt to demand fluctuation, rising expenses, labor issues, and other costly operational issues—all while complying with regulatory agencies.
According to Spera best-in-class manufacturers are also turning to QMS automation in order to standardize a framework for high quality manufacturing at a lower cost. In fact, the best of the best-in-class are automating key manufacturing processes such as change control management, corrective action/preventive action (CAPA), audit management, dashboards, supplier quality ratings, advanced product quality planning (APQP), and more.
This level of automation leaves little room for error when it comes to manufacturing high-quality products and correcting defects. By using QMS functionality and technology, and applying it more broadly across the execution of manufacturing processes, these leaders further demonstrate the value of an integrated QMS+MES solution.
