International automotive parts manufacturer, Yazaki Europe Ltd, is in the process of implementing a range of EQMS modules to improve overall business efficiency. EQMS will assist the manufacturer to optimise processes by providing rapid response to business issues and automating time-heavy administrative activities.
Yazaki was founded in 1929 by Sadami Yazaki and now employs almost 300,000 people worldwide in 45 countries across over 400 locations. The world's largest producer of wiring harnesses also supplies terminals, connectors and other electronic components for automotive vehicles.
In a move to continuously improve all processes, Yazaki Europe Ltd recognised an opportunity to implement a new electronic quality management system which could manage their complex audit requirements. After a competitive tendering process, Yazaki Europe Ltd selected Qualsys Ltd.
A full suite of EQMS modules are now being configured to meet Yazaki Europe Ltd's unique quality requirements. The solution will be used to cut out time-heavy administrative activities and ensure internal and supplier audits are managed in a closed-loop.
Robust Audit Scheduling
EQMS Audit and Inspection Manager provides end-to-end functionality for managing the complete audit lifecycle. Authorised users are able to:
- Plan and schedule audits.
- Develop standard audit plans and checklists.
- Control data field collection and built-in remediation workflows.
360-Degree Visibility into Performance
iEQMS, a permission controlled mobile auditing application, provides critical functionality for a multi-location workforce. Within the application, auditors are able to:
- Raise findings and actions.
- Attach sound, video or documentation as evidence.
- Work offline, as the application automatically re-synchronises once WiFi connectivity is restored.
Any issues, completed and overdue actions can then be viewed through the EQMS Dashboard. The dashboard has a 1-click drill down functionality, enabling rapid response to business issues. Actions can even be directed at Supplier staff without giving them access to other records in the system. EQMS features:
- Built-in remediation workflows.
- Time tracking.
- Email based notifications and alerts.
