Are you looking for a software to support and improve your quality management processes? [FP]-LIMS might be the right solution!

In business, customer satisfaction is the key to success, systematical goods improvement, and long-term customer-partnerships. Leading manufacturers invest systematically in the optimization of production processes. In fact, customer satisfaction derives from a certain level of “quality” of one company’s products. Thus, in everyday life, “quality” is often used as a synonym for “good”. For this reason, many brands categorize their products with expressions like “high-quality”. In this page we will talk about the role of a LIMS software in support and optimization of quality management processes.

Firstly, it is important to understand that quality must be organized to reach specific standards. In this case, we speak of “quality management” as a strategy to achieve those goals. Quality management is nothing, but a process supported by tools. One of the most used ones is the Statistical Process Control (SPC), which has a wide chance to reach higher standards. SPC sets an accurate control process to collect real-time data.

Are you looking for a software that can do that and supports you at the same time in optimizing your quality processes?

[FP]-LIMS is the LIMS (laboratory information management system) software designed by the German company Fink & Partner GmbH and is a practical and intuitive solution to manage your workflows, collect and evaluate your data, and track your samples.

However, what is the purpose of quality management?

Quality management (QM) and, therefore, the quality management system (QMS) aspire to improve production methods and final products as well as reduce production costs. For this reason, we can assume that quality management is the total quality-related activities and objectives, and involves the concepts of planning, doing, checking, and acting. The quality management system is the strategy one company adapts to have the most significant improvement and optimization potential in its processes and workflows.

How can [FP]-LIMS help you out in your quality management processes?

Thanks to its modules, [FP]-LIMS supports you in the processes of quality inspection, incoming inspection, SPC and output processes. Nevertheless, [FP]-LIMS enables you to connect all your measurement instruments, collect, evaluate, and archive your measurement data. At the same time, you can also control supplier quality, create reports and certificates based on precise guidelines such as 3.1… everything in just one software!

[FP]-LIMS can also be described as a software for the support to quality management due to its open interfaces to superior systems such as ERP and PPC: the purpose here is to facilitate data flow between the different business functions and external stakeholders.

With this consideration, we should have a look at the current situation in the 21st century, also known as the digital era. It is now essential to understand that even production processes need to be digitalized and automatized. Since information technology (IT) has been evolving a lot in and with the industrial fields, the operation/production management must be aware of the changes. Now [FP]-LIMS also supports the certified interface to the digitalized next-business generation system SAP S/4HANA®.
