Jason Spera, CEO and Co-Founder of Aegis Software, a global provider of Manufacturing Operations Management Software (MOM), was featured in the recent issue of Robotics & Automation News. 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.
Spera found that 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.
Spera urged that for manufacturers, the goal is to move from raw materials to finished, high-quality, zero-defect products in the least amount of time and with the greatest level of efficiency to achieve optimal levels of customer satisfaction. Holistic quality management not only achieves cost savings; it also dramatically improves quality and customer satisfaction. In fact, by leveraging embedded, comprehensive quality management capabilities, manufacturers can firewall, detect, identify, repair, and recover from defects found throughout the entire manufacturing process.
