What is AQM
Epicor Advanced Quality Management (AQM) provides a powerful and proven solution that offers a unique model for integrating quality systems to achieve superior enterprise-wide performance. It helps companies to become more competitive and profitable, and to achieve and maintain compliance, e.g, ISO 9000, TS-16949, AS 9100, ISO 14001, ISO 13485, and registration faster and at a lower cost than other systems.
Instead of being built around the specific characteristics of any one of a number of general and/or industry-specific quality standards, the Epicor AQM solution is designed around the needs of complex business processes. Epicor AQM extends your Epicor ERP solution and begins with functions for managing supplier, customer and employee information and activities. It continues with modules designed to administer documentation relevant to quality systems and manufacturing processes, as well as product data management and analysis. Additionally, Epicor AQM provides for identifying and tracking employee training and skills management, as well as documentation management.
On the operations level Epicor AQM includes modules for preventive maintenance and device calibration, as well as complete inspection, data collection and SPC capabilities. The system provides for the tracking of Non-conformances (NCM’s) and the means for issuing and handling corrective actions.
Epicor AQM integrates system-wide audit management capabilities, including an Advanced Planning module to help meet APQP and PPAP requirements, common to the automotive industry.
Complete quality cost tracking embedded throughout Epicor AQM provides the ability to define labor hours not managed in Epicor ERP. This unique and comprehensive approach ensures that you meet and exceed the quality standards you set out to achieve, as well as improving your productivity, throughput and revenue.
AQM Core Solution
This solution includes Product and Process Documentation, Customer and Supplier Management, Nonconformance, and Corrective Action capability.
Compliance and Audit
Industry and regulatory compliance requires three basic capabilities: process control, documentation and visibility. The Compliance & Audit solution, implemented in concert with Epicor AQM core capabilities, enables you to automate your business processes, share key information, provide process documentation, traceability, and track existing and potential issues through effective resolution.
Epicor AQM Data Collection and statistical process control (SPC) enables you to gather all the key data required for receiving, in-process and final inspections. It provides automated management of inspection plans for each operation of business processes, with complete revision control and change history. Collect data against these operations and chart results for controlling these processes and achieving continuous improvement.
These integrated productivity tools strengthen the management of all preventative and reactive equipment maintenance activities. This solution maintains accurate online records of all maintenance work order and calibration activities.
Epicor AQM product launch defines, automates and documents the critical aspects of your product launch process to assure engineering design information is translated effectively throughout the pre-production process. Advanced product quality planning (APQP) management enables you to synchronize all key processes and activities through the creation of templates, project plans and checklists that manage all details of the launch process. The solution also manages the quality of parts through a series of highly controlled submission warrants, checklists and approval routings, as required by industry-specific quality methodologies, including production part approval process (PPAP), initial sample inspection report (ISIR), and First Article. All part specifications and modifications are documented and communicated to promote error-free production runs.
