Layered Process Auditing exposes errors when and where they happen. It's a key part of the Automotive Industry Action Group's CQI-8 guidelines, General Motor's quality system basics (QSB) and built in quality supply (BIQS) initiatives, and other GMP audit approaches. Industries from aerospace to pharmaceuticals are adopting these layered audits as well because earlier detection and correction significantly lowers rework and scrap costs, minimizes warranty holdbacks, and reduces customer complaints and callbacks.
Beacon helps ensure all are high-quality.
Question randomization, and randomized auditor assignments are just two of the dynamic checks Beacon provides to reduce pencil-whipping and eliminate the temptation to "self-pass" or "buddy pass" minor issues that can become much bigger issues later
