LPA is a system of audits performed by multiple levels of supervision and management to monitor key process characteristics and verify process conformance on an ongoing basis. The purpose of EASE Layered Process Audits software is to minimize variation in processes, increase quality and error-proofing systems. Done manually they are very labor intensive to administer. Working with our customers, we have automated the process via a web application.
Originally pioneered by automotive, LPA is now used by many types of manufacturing.
Layered Process Audits reduce build variation based on work standardization. Focusing on process inputs that help achieve first-time quality.
Layered Process Audits reduce non compliance means reduced defects. Eliminating the shipping of nonconforming products.
With Layered Process Audits, safety regulations will be enforced, reducing operator injury. Saving money because it’s less costly to have fewer injuries and manufacture products correctly the
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.
Operator training and interaction with management will be improved. Helping top management become more familiar with shop-floor activities and building a relationship
between management and shop floor personnel.
Training gaps will be identified
Non Conformance Codes
All failures reasons are selected from combo boxes by type, allowing consistency of error descriptions and to facilitate the production of Pareto Charts. You can drill down within the pareto charts for more insight.
Questions that can be used in multiple audits can be shared.
Once the LPA program has been set up, it is easy to administer, with schedules, charts, and metrics.
Include charts for completion, coverage, non conformance, pareto analysis. All filtered by date, department, auditor , shift etc.
Shift Supervisor Acknowlegement
All non conformance found must be acknowleged by the supervisor immediately once found.
