Corrective Actions happen. Issues come up that were not planned for, people make mistakes, and whether it’s the customer, an accrediting body, or your internal quality team, a corrective action is typically requested to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Corrective Actions, or RCCA’s (Root Cause/Corrective Actions) can include analyses in many forms such as 5 Why’s and 8D’s. However, when it comes to tracking the overall process and ensuring each step is completed and reviewed properly, things can become difficult to manage.
This is where a LIMS solution incorporating Quality Management System (QMS) aspects, such as Corrective Action Tracking is a powerful tool. Why purchase a separate system to track corrective actions when it can be incorporated into the LIMS? Wavefront LIMS has helped their customers design a corrective action tracking system that aligns with their existing QMS processes and ensures that their CAR’s are identified, analyzed, and completed correctly and completely each time.
