What is a Quality Management System (QMS)?

A quality management system, or QMS, establishes a set of process definitions and product parameters so enterprises can easily manage and share product quality planning requirements with suppliers. Also known as a supply chain quality management system, or SCQMS, the set of processes include configurable workflows and intelligent forms to ensure efficient part qualification.

Unlike legacy systems, advanced quality management systems are adaptable and can take corrective actions on demand. A QMS helps enterprises track product quality conformance and anticipate quality control issues. Enterprises can also use resolve exceptions through feedback management and corrective and preventive action (CAPA) workflows.
