As part of the Elemica Buy™ solution suite, an inbound Electronic Certificates of Analysis (e-COA) lets you digitally authenticate supplier product specifications to ensure that all supplier materials are fit for purpose and prevent production disruptions.
Module lets you automate quality-related supplier interactions by demanding a special Electronic Certificate of Analysis that authenticates acceptable materials by suppliers, issuing this green light only when inputs meet specs for tighter quality assurance.
By keeping incorrect or substandard materials out of the plant, you can help protect uptime, eliminate material or component-related rework and delays, as well as help reduce investment in pre-production inventory.
Since supplier-related quality metrics relating to order acceptability are kept digitally and automatically, you can now come to supplier decisions better armed with the data and insights you need.
The Elemica Buy™ Electronic Certificates of Analysis module lets you collect Statistical Process Control (SPC), Process Acceptability (Ppk) and time-related trends so you can fuel Six Sigma or general manufacturing procurement improvement efforts with solid data.
The module’s digital certificates enable you to assign inputs to an end product, for a permanent record of material traceability. This can assist in auditing or root cause analysis efforts in the future.
System automates supplier data collection and lets you customize how and when data is captured. Also lets you access, print and share your Certificate of Analysis with other internal stakeholders or supply chain partners.
When a supplier, material or component does not quite meet specification, the system allows you to digitally communicate the problem and automatically request an appropriate correction and corresponding action plan.
