Ease Beacon Key Features

AUDIT ASSIGNMENT

Are you required to conduct PCA and EPV audits at every shift? Does top management conduct at least one PCA a week? Manage LPA requirements through random audit assignments or assign audits to a layer of personnel by interval.

EASY ADMINISTRATION

Import checklists, users, audit questions then quickly schedule, view charts, and metrics. Create reports in digital format or print to prepare for customer meetings and reassure them of your operational processes.

AUTOMATE SCHEDULING

Assign recurring daily/weekly/bi-weekly/monthly/quarterly audits based on your operational calendar and never assign an audit on an off day. Have full visibility of your personnel resources and audit requirements to meet LPA goals. Send automated email alerts and reminders for auditors as scheduled audit approaches.

REUSABLE/ RANDOM QUESTIONS

Tag audit question by work area or work station to enable multiple use in layered audits. Randomized audit questions for operators to track user engagement.

AUDIT QUESTION TYPES

Include Pass/Fail, Acknowledge, Measurements, Scoring and Comments. Ease Beacon follows CQI-8 guidelines but also understands that some operational processes cannot be checked using a pass/fail question type. We’ve incorporated additional question types to give Quality Engineers the option to customize a solution to meet your need.

SUPERVISOR ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Keep user engagement with automated alerts and reminders requesting supervisor feedback when faced with a non conformance. Supervisors can assign corrective actions on sight or delegate tasks to another available team member.

WHAT ARE THE LPA BENEFITS?

MEET CUSTOMER REQUIREMENTS

LPA provides a dynamic view into operational process conformance and corrective actions required by many end manufactures to maintain supplier quality. Disclose your process conformance and audit completion rates for added assurance and credibility into your production quality.

REDUCE FINAL INSPECTION

An effective Layered Process Audits software program reduces the need for final product inspection. By ensuring that processes run correctly because you are able to personally verify them.

FACILITATES TRAINING

Operator training and interaction with management is improved with constant contact. LPA helps top management become more familiar with shop-floor activities and builds relationship between management and shop floor personnel while identifying training gaps.

Enforce Safety Regulations

With Layered Process Audits, safety regulations are enforced with constant checks and corrective action thus reducing operator injury.
