The Quality Management Challenge Fast and consistent corrective action and preventive action (CAPA) processes are central to maintaining regulatory compliance and improving the quality of your product and service. The reality, however, is that many organizations today are struggling to establish an effective product quality management system. They have geographically dispersed engineering and manufacturing environments where information about product quality is decentralized and inconsistent. This is further complicated by the fact that different locations, business units, and departments use completely separate processes to communicate and resolve product deficiencies. The result is millions of dollars in increased warranty and service costs each year. The need to improve product quality management in the manufacturing and service phases of the product lifecycle is only half the equation. There is a greater benefit when companies can analyze product quality factors since such insight can drive improved design very early in the development process. Agile Product Quality Management provides a collaborative environment across the extended enterprise where teams dynamically update, access, and analyze information about product quality from internal departments, customers, and suppliers. Such visibility in a platform supports more-intelligent decisions about next-generation products (Contributor, 2011).

As such, companies can take appropriate, short-term corrective action by servicing products—or, if necessary, take long-term preventive action by adjusting the engineering processes to resolve and eliminate deficiencies (Contributor, 2011).
