I'm having a tough time convincing my management that some form of software is the way to go. They are keen on lean manufacturing, so I thought I'd take that approach.

Remember the target audience; Simplicity is a must!!!
Okay,

Viewing the excellent material supplied by Doug, if that's what you want, why is this thread in the Quality Software Topics? Similar diagrams exist in several other threads. Did you amble into the Sports Section of the store looking for light bulbs? :rolleyes:

Because I am required to cost justify the software. My company, while not huge, is a Fortune 500 company and QS9000 registered. Some of our plants (mine, for instance) supply the Big 3. Because of our structure, signatures are required at several levels beyond mine to add software. They are not easily influenced by bells and whistles. In fact, I would really question their abilities to make good decisions if they were.

They are interested in reducing costs and there are many examples of how this may be accomplished via the right QMS software. For instance, there are times when same data is relevant to the PFMEA, Control Plan, Nonconformance, Corrective Action and Management Review systems. If these systems are separate, there is a cost to access and re-enter this data in each system. If I can eliminate this “extra handling” I reduce costs.

I can map the usual scenarios, identifying where waste occurs and calculate the costs. Or, instead of re-inventing the wheel, I can see if anyone in here has already traveled the same road. Perhaps some one has already cost justified the purchase of software, or could point me in the direction of published materials on the subject.

Thanks to all of you that have taken the time to reply in a positive way.

realize that predilection for flippant comments and intellectual aptitude can never be equated :biglaugh:

Sorry to hurt your feelings, Jay. You asked about software. You got an example of software. Doesn't suit your purpose? Fine. You got process flows.

I don't consider my last response flippant, (Me flip? Ya think? :rolleyes: ) rather asking for more guidance on what you really want. I guess I got it now. A crying towel.:vfunny: :ko: :smokin:
