Our client in manufacturing, a leading mechanical parts supplier, faced significant challenges in optimizing their operational workflows. The IT Manager recognized the critical need for an effective Task Management System (TMS) to address ongoing issues in task tracking, workflow inefficiencies, and collaboration hurdles within the company.
- Task Tracking Challenges: The client struggled with the tracking and managing of various tasks across varied manufacturing processes and departments. This led to delays and a lack of transparency in task progress.

Our client is a prominent player in the manufacturing of high-end instruments with over 30 years of industry experience. They have a specialized R&D process for medical equipment manufacture. The company boasts an extensive product portfolio, accumulated over the years, leading to a significant volume of crucial documents in the archive.
The primary pain points revolved around the cumbersome nature of manual and paper documentation and its management, especially in their research and development efforts. Valuable time was being spent on searching for essential documents, often because documents were misplaced or lost. This not only led to operational inefficiencies and extra resources but also necessitated the replacement of lost documents, further burdening the workflow and other processes. The complexity increased when multiple individuals were involved in workflows, making it challenging to track responsibilities and task assignments.
To address these challenges, we proposed the implementation of Aura QMS document management software, aiming to decrease the time spent on manual documentation and management by 50%. Aura, an electronic Quality Management System, offered a seamless transition from a manual document management system to an automated one.
All documents, including those crucial to the R&D process for medical equipment, were uploaded, approved, and published within specified hours. The system established a hierarchy of approval authorities for each document version, ensuring a clear path for document approvals. Users were required to raise a Document Change Request (DCR) for each version, maintaining a transparent record of modifications. Access to documents was restricted to privileged users only, enhancing security and confidentiality.

- Eliminated the risk of document misplacement and loss

- In various scenarios where their teams collaborate on critical projects with constant document revisions, the lack of clear version control makes integrating edits complex. Determining the most recent version becomes challenging, leading to information loss and incorrect data utilization.
Our team deliberated to finally derive a Quality Assurance solution that will help meet the client’s requirements to sort out the various issues related to quality management.
