Control Methodology—Advanced Quality Planning
When an OEM is preparing to launch or transition a large-scale contract manufacturing warehouse operation, the flawless movement of millions of parts is at stake; operational execution, at a premium.
Comprehensive Logistics (CLI) knows how critical it is for an OEM’s logistics operation to have highly engineered process controls in place from day one:
- Seamless, efficient start-up
- Flexibility to manage change
- Ongoing assessments of how to continuously improve performance and reduce costs.
From the point of receipt through shipment, CLI considers the potential for error. Our detailed control-documentation plan includes a Potential Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (PFMEA), process-specific work instructions, and formal corrective action plans, to ensure that failures don’t occur. Within this “control methodology” are irreversible corrective actions, such as error-proofing methodologies, that become permanent parts of the process.
CLI's control methodology is built on three proven pillars of success:
- An engineered approach aligned with a Plan For Every Part (PFEP) methodology. Our approach adheres to Dr. William Edwards Deming's principles, which dictate that quality equals the result of work efforts over the total costs. As a result, Comprehensive Logistics ensures fast, efficient implementations and ongoing productivity enhancements.
- An unwavering commitment to quality that exceeds world-class standards. Our quality management systems and processes, including Master Dot methodology and a formal change management process, are customer-based and service-focused to meet the highest, most rigorous standards of our customers.
- A continuous improvement focus that generates efficiencies through Lean techniques and formal processes to drive the systemic elimination of waste and variation operation-wide and maximize cost savings for our customers.
