Quality control is a crucial function for industrial companies due to two primary reasons. Firstly, it significantly reduces the amount of end products that go to waste, resulting in cost reduction. Secondly, it enhances the company’s reputation by ensuring better quality, which in turn facilitates sales.

While many Finnish companies still rely on pencil and paper forms for quality control, the use of a well-designed computer program can greatly improve efficiency. With continuous monitoring and reporting capabilities, quality control software can quickly identify defects and rectify issues before the final product is rejected. Additionally, automated report generation ensures compliance with quality systems and regulatory requirements without burdening company staff with extra work.

The Smartmes quality control system encompasses various essential functions, as depicted in the figure below, with detailed information available on the Quality Control Functions page. By leveraging technology, companies can optimize their quality control processes and reap the benefits of improved product quality and reduced costs.
