The Verse non-conformance management software module is designed to do just that. It helps you identify any materials that do not conform to the specification, identify the areas which caused the nonconformance, and then take action to properly disposition the material. The Nonconformance process is closely tied to the Corrective Action process. In some cases, the nature of the defect is minor and can be allowed through with a planned deviation, but in other cases, the defect represents a material nonconformance that needs to be investigated. Furthermore, you are able to link specific non-conformances to other events. This can be a planned deviation, a supplier corrective action, or immediate actions to ensure you are collecting the most data to make more informed decisions. Lastly, you can use the Verse Risk Assessment tool to link risks to the non-conformance and build a history of risk on a particular product, supplier or production line.
Identify defects and take action
Record and track any nonconforming materials, identify costs and pertinent information about the defect. Each form is designed to collect as much information about the product, suppliers, customers and more.
Streamline the process through workflow
Through the Verse workflow-based processes, you can set due dates, escalations and notifications to ensure that materials are managed quickly, and time isn't lost during the process.
Link to other processes
Link deviations to any nonconformance records, open up action items to handle sub-activities, or launch corrective actions, directly from the nonformance forms.
