NGC Software has introduced the Advanced Quality Module, a tablet-based software application that enables quality control managers to conduct audits at the manufacturing facility. The application can integrate with product lifecycle management and apparel supply chain management solutions.
Retailers and brands can use the module to identify problems sooner, fix them at the factory before products ship and improve product quality to reduce the risk of cancellations or chargebacks.
The Advanced Quality Module enables auditors to:
Conduct multiple audit types per purchase order;
Take photos of defects; and
Conduct master inspections.
The platform can provide comprehensive analytics by factory, vendor, country and style. Auditors can analyze the data to assist with sourcing decisions and identify where factories can make improvements. Corrective action plans bring the quality assurance process full circle, and increased flexibility around customer requirements assures adaptation to any changes in requirements.
The platform supports multiple defect levels (minor, major, critical), flexible AQL tables and single and double sampling plans.
Brands can use NGC’s Advanced Quality Module with the NGCInteractive Quality Tablet (IQT).
