Picture this: you’re steering the ship of quality control, ensuring every product sails smoothly through manufacturing. Suddenly, a storm hits – non-conformances due to poor management of corrective actions; as a Supplier Quality Engineer, maybe this nightmare is all too familiar to you.
The diverse causes of non-conformances
Non-conformances are the ever-present issues in the manufacturing ecosystem, and causes can be diverse:
Cause 1: Inadequate Root Cause Analysis:
Inadequate root cause analysis is a breeding ground for recurring non-conformances. As Supplier Quality Engineers, understanding the depth of the issue is critical.
