Identifiers for Inspections:
1factory offers four customer-configurable Inspection Identifiers:
1. For Manufacturing Inspections
-- Manufacturing Inspection Identifier 1: Work Order # or Job #
-- Manufacturing Inspection Identifier 2: Batch # or Heat #
2. For Receiving Inspections
-- Receiving Inspection Identifier 1: Purchase Order #
-- Receiving Inspection Identifier 2: Receipt #
Identifiers for NCRs:
A Non-Conformance Report (NCR) must clearly capture some information about the part(s) that you suspect to be defective.
The identifiers for NCRs depend on where the NCR was detected. In the 1factory system, that corresponds to four NCR Types: Receiving, Manufacturing, Field and Customer.
Here is a recommended list of identifiers depending on where the NCR was found:
- NCR detected at "My Receiving Inspection", then I need to log the PO#, Receipt # (the unique transaction ID from my ERP), the Supplier Name, and the Supplier's Lot #.
- NCR detected during "My Manufacturing Process", I need to log the Work Order #, and possibly a second inspection identifier such as a Batch# or a Heat #. If the problem is found to be supplier caused, then I need to also append the Receiving Inspection Identifiers from #1 above.
- NCR detected after the Customer has received the parts i.e. "Customer Uses Parts", then I need to log the Customer's PO # or my corresponding Sales Order #. Depending on what our MRB process finds, we may need to also add Manufacturing Inspection Identifiers and/or Receiving Inspection identifiers.
In addition to the Manufacturing Inspection Identifiers and Receiving Inspection Identifiers listed above, 1factory offers two additional Identifiers for NCRs :
1. Customer Identifier:
-- Customer Identifier: Customer's PO# or Your Sales Order #
2. Supplier Identifier:
-- Supplier Identifier: Supplier's Lot # or Date Code
