Ease Beacon Key Features
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.
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.
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.
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.
