Incident management and corrective action software enables food and beverage companies to track and manage a broad range of incidents from many sources, such as manufacturing non-conformances, supplier quality issues, and quality procedure-related events, like those impacting HACCP plan execution, appropriate change-overs and Clean-In-Place (CIP). It automates corrective actions triggered by incidents, complaints and other quality events, managing the corrective action process, automating verification of effectiveness over time, and providing seamless traceability to related quality processes, such as change control and training.
With incident management and corrective action software, food & beverage organizations give their quality and food safety professionals the power to log and manage quality and safety issues originating from any source. The automated workflow routes quality records through the appropriate investigation, root cause analysis, planning, verification and effectiveness steps, providing a repeatable, closed-loop incident and corrective action system.
