Q-SYS Pack Quality Control (PQC) is designed specifically for fresh produce packers. PQC has been developed in conjunction with major fruit and vegetable packers to provide a simple and fast method of recording quality attributes, weights and inspection details, on both incoming and outgoing products.
Q-SYS PQC integrates seamlessly with the LIMS and Quality Logging modules to create a comprehensive multi-purpose quality system across your business.
The Q-SYS Specifications module is what drives Pack Quality Control. It specifies what quality assessments are to be performed, what product identification information can or must be entered, and the targets, validation and limits applied to the entered results.
Specifications are set up for each raw material and product. Specifications are uniquely numbered, as are all versions; the history of all changes is retained by Q-SYS. Each version can also include documentation of any changes, and Q-SYS provides an alerting feature when a revised specification comes into effect.
Comprehensive facilities for entering Specifications for each quality assessment include, for example, maximum, minimum, upper and lower warning limits and upper and lower mandatory limits. Each limit can also have a customised on-screen or spoken message defined, which QC’s and operators see as they enter assessments.
Q-SYS uses this information to highlight results automatically, determine whether a material can be accepted or a product released, and alert technicians and managers to issues. Specifications, and all versions can be printed or exported in any format to provide customer reports, management review information or operator checklists.
The Specifications module is also shared by Q-SYS LIMS and Quality Logging, as well as PQC.
