Hello Everyone,

I have been asked if I can point someone towards a cheap and cheerful Quality Management System. (their words)

They are a manufacturing company and currently use Lotus 123 which is no longer supported so would like to update it.

Currently the system they have is basically a data base that provides them with worksheets etc required and then goes through approvals, benchmarking processes etc.

They said they could get someone to replicate the system in Access but would take ages in house so thought would ask around to see if anyone knew of any potential off the shelf solutions.

So if you have any links of possible solutions you have worked with would be great as I have mainly worked with non-manufacturing clients thought would dip into pool of expertise I am sure is out there :)

Thank you Kindly, Ellen

I have some experience with Q-Systems in Lotus Notes, and have in previous employments used adapted versions of Sherlock:

It is very reasonably priced and can be adjusted by anyone with a fair understanding of Notes development.

Thank you for your suggestion - I do like the look of the system - wondered if it (or any other system you know of) is based on something other than Lotus?

Replicate the system? You could do it all on dry erase boards if necessary.

Cheap...Use the document management software that came with your computer. I've seen it done very successfully 100's of times

Well, clearly a database is not a QMS (although some developers still try to sell that idea). If your acquaintance wants one or more databases that could be used to help them maintain their QMS they could look at the many free attachments here at the cove. Here are a couple of searches to get started with:

Have a look at TeamDesk. Hosted database solution, easy to configure to your processes. Has built-in user/role handling and email reminders...

Used it to set up a CAPA process and will continue with NC/Complaints, CC, etc etc...

Best Regards,
