Using Job Shop ERP Software for a QMS

Hello,

Looks like this is my first actual post even though I joined previously. I am helping a job shop implement a very back QMS; they essentially have nothing today. The have a typical job shop ERP (I don't want the discussion to get off on the merits of the actual software so I'll refrain from mentioning the name) which is along the lines of Job Boss, Global Shop, E2, etc. These types of software are great to go from initial phone call, to quote, purchase order, work order, etc. Lo and behold, this one also has a QMS. There are ways to initiate non-conformances, dispositions, CAR's, etc. From our brief investigation thus far, it looks like they have all the basics covered.

Are there any reason to consider NOT using this system? They are not, at the moment, pursuing ISO but it's a definite future possibility.

Anyone care to weigh in here?

Thanks,
BB

Our Shop runs one of the ERP software programs you mentioned. I initially attempted to make use of the ‘Quality’ module in it, and incorporate it into our QMS. What I determined after months of fumbling and head scratching was that the ‘quality’ system in the package was likely little more than a sales gimmick used to ‘dress-up’ the pitch to potential customers who are typically upper management with little knowledge or expertise as to what an efficient and effective QMS requires (let alone the individuals who wrote the code for this thing).

I make use of custom excel sheets to manage most of my quality data which can sometime be imported from the ERP software, & custom forms that better meet the specific requirements of our operation. For most part, I have found that when anything says “Fits All” it should generally be interpreted as “Fits None”.

This is just my personal experience with one ERP, so take my response with a grain of salt.
