Manufacturer needs software to handle communication around non-conformance materials
"I work in the field of manufacturing, research and design.
The problem we are facing is that of our nonconformance materials. When we have a questionable component it goes on hold and it can take a long time to get an answer on whether it can be reworked and waivered, or if it needs to be scrapped. Currently everything we do is on paper, and there are many carbon copies of discrepancies. These are physically handed off to other divisions and there is no way other than emails and calls to influence turn around time.
I'd like software that can shorten the time between one division and another, and make the issues and time it has been waiting visible to everyone. This might give accountability for better turnaround time.
Depending on what else the software is capable of doing I would be able to allocate around 50k per year for usage and maintenance contract."
