QMS, featuring a powerful expediting module

Expediting is the important function of monitoring the status of manufacture in relation to purchase orders, to ensure materials are supplied in accordance with the delivery dates specified.

QMS includes a powerful expediting module to maintain a complete history of expediting activity. Reporting by exception means that high priority or potential problem areas get the greatest attention, and that expediting becomes a routine process.

Expediting information can be recorded at both a summary level, in relation to a Purchase Order in general, or at a line item level of detail. The history of previous contacts is maintained at both levels.

Typical information that can be recorded includes:

  • Date of contact
  • Vendor Comments
  • Forecast delivery date
  • Likely date
  • Expeditors comments
  • Next Contact date
  • Shipping details
