In this blog post, we’re going to introduce and cover the use of Quality Management in Process Manufacturing. Before we dive in, it is important to note that when looking in the best practices explorer it appears that quality management in process manufacturing is not supported, however, this is not the case, and it should be considered in your next round of Fit-to-Standard workshops with your respective customer. QM in process manufacturing can add value to your customer teams by providing the ability to perform quality inspections for in-process activities and quality inspections upon goods receipt in a streamlined manner. Some of the key benefits provided by this scope item include the integration of quality inspection activities in process orders, and ability to analyze inspection activities and results using the control chart tool.

At a high level, the process flows in the following order of operations:

  • Extension of Pre-Delivered Master Data

  • In Process Inspection for Semi-Finished Goods

  • Confirmation of Production

  • Post Goods Receipt for Process Order

  • Goods Receipt from Production Inspection for Semi-Finished Good

  • Review of Batch Data (Optional)

This link (login required) will take you to the knowledge-based article created by Enda Fennelly on extending quality management in the BJ8 Make-to-Stock Process Manufacturing Based on Process Order scope item. A test script can be found on the page detailing end-to-end function from master data enhancement to execution of each step required for testing this quality management process. It is important to note prior to executing the process steps that you must first replicate and extend the master data from the BJ8 scope item.
