Discrete Manufacturing

Enterprise Quality Management Software for the Discrete Manufacturing Industry

Discrete manufacturers produce and sell high-quality, highly complex products such as automobiles, technology and machinery. The manufacturing environment for these products is characterized by a need for flexibility in order to effectively link demand with production, improve quality and time-to-market, and lower costs. Goods are typically mass-produced, using standard assembly lines and require a means of managing mass customization. 

Due to the wide range of requirements and diverse spread of stakeholders, discrete manufacturers face countless industry challenges. These challenges range from shorter product lifecycles due to rapid new product innovations, increased use of global supply chain, and the need to manage strategic partnerships across the supply chain.

Sparta Systems’ Enterprise Quality Management Software (EQMS) solutions help discrete manufacturers manage product quality and business processes efficiently throughout their organization, and across their global supply chains. Whether on premise or cloud-based, our EQMS solutions allow manufacturers to mitigate risk and reduce the complexity of business processes while fostering highly collaborative enterprises with in-depth visibility into supplier quality.

Event and complaint handling are integrated into the overall quality management system, allowing users to benefit from a single interface - eliminating the need for complex and costly custom integration.

Supplier Quality Management »

Discrete manufacturers, particularly in the electronics, semiconductor and high-tech industries, balance a globally dispersed supply chain with a compressed product life cycle, which makes it critical to source strategic suppliers properly and maintain and develop supplier capabilities and progress in a tighter and collaborative fashion essential. Sparta’s Supplier Quality Management solutions improve quality throughout the supply chain by managing the process of qualifying, selecting and monitoring suppliers and supply chain partners. These solutions offer features such as supplier scorecards, supplier qualification workflows and tracking systems for supplier deviations and resulting actions.
