Integrated Quality Management with SAP
QM comprises a large number of functions and processes in the SAP system to support quality planning, quality inspection, and quality control. These are fully integrated into the SAP ERP system. QM in SAP thus offers much more than conventional, isolated, computer-aided quality assurance systems (CAQ systems) or laboratory information and management systems (LIMS). Quality-relevant information is available across the entire company for all processes and products along the entire value chain, always up-to-date and without gaps. Avoiding data redundancy reduces IT costs, increases transparency, creates security and simplifies the analysis of quality-relevant processes.
In principle, we recommend introducing QM in the first wave of ERP implementation. However, a subsequent integration of QM into a productive SAP system is also possible and recommended. Existing standard interfaces allow the connection of external measuring systems or special statistical evaluation systems.
SAP QM supports a variety of quality standards and customer requirements such as QS9000, ISO TS 16949:2002, VDA 4.3, VDA 6.1, APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice).
