Software Solutions for Manufacturers

EASE helps manufacturers around the world implement good manufacturing practices (GMP) and perform better overall while ensuring compliance with layered process audits (LPAs), 5S, safety and more, handling mitigation, and providing comprehensive reporting.

Layered Process Audits in Manufacturing

Increasing numbers of manufacturers are adopting LPAs to reduce process errors and defects, as well as to meet customer requirements. On a basic level, LPAs consist of several elements:

  • Short, high-frequency checks taking place every day
  • Analyzing process inputs rather than inspecting finished products
  • Cross-functional participation at all levels of the organization

Checking off each item alone isn’t enough to drive true value. Instead, you need to make sure you’re asking the right questions—and that the right people are involved.

Hold the gains in quality improvements

  • Close the Loop
    Quality and compliance improve dramatically when high-frequency audits go mobile, allowing for real-time reporting for you and your boss.
  • Ensure Process Standardization
    Prevent pencil-whipping with randomized questions, rotating auditors, and timed audits, without all the hassle of managing and chasing paper.
  • Cut Defects and Costs
    Real-time audit data lets you act on process errors ASAP, before they cause defects and customer compliance issues.
  • Achieve ROI faster
    Cloud-based mobile platform means you’re up and running in a few days, not a few months, so you can focus on the tasks at hand rather than double-entering data into a spreadsheet.
