QMS on Microsoft 365 – The Right Technology !

Microsoft 365 is not a QMS software but it brings all the ingredients needed for a Quality Management System, like strong collaboration capabilities with SharePoint, tools for video-conferencing and discussions with Teams, workflow automation with Power Automate, tools for Business Intelligence with Power BI, and much more.

BPA has developed the missing pieces to make Microsoft 365 a ready-for-use QMS for everyone.

Simplify Supplier Qualification & Evaluation with BPA Apps

Supplier Management Flow

Typical automated supplier management workflow in BPAQuality365.

A typical requirement in quality standards is to qualify and evaluate relevant suppliers.

We make it easy and agile with BPA Apps to comply with regulations and meet your own supplier management needs.

An usual supplier management process flow in BPA App allows to:

  • register suppliers
  • categorize suppliers (e.g. by importance)
  • qualify suppliers (through a set of questions)
  • approve suppliers (through an automated approval workflow)
  • periodically evaluate suppliers (through an automated evaluation workflow)

Supplier Form

Example of a supplier qualification form with configurable qualification questions.

Suppliers can be registered in BPA Apps by filling in a digital form. The form is highly configurable to include the supplier importance (e.g. ABC analysis), address, qualification questions, and other attributes.

The qualification section of the form includes your dedicated questions, like

  • Is the supplier certified?
  • Is the supplier critical to your business?
  • Is the supplier contract higher than a certain amount?
  • Is the supplier operating in a prohibited country?
  • etc…

An automated workflow verifies answers to these questions and pre qualify or reject the supplier. If the supplier is pre qualified, an approval notification is sent to the concerned persons and the supplier gets updated as qualified or rejected.

A second automated workflow starts for the supplier evaluation. The evaluation form includes your predefined questions. Evaluation result is calculated, compared to the required acceptance level, and notifications are sent to the concerned employees. When needed, an improvement request is automatically sent to the supplier.

Forms, app pages and automated workflows can be easily configured based on your needs.

Office 365 eSignature Video

eSignature for Everyone, on Any Device, with SharePoint and Office 365

Modern eSignature component to be used in your Office 365 environment.

For regulated industries, electronic signature is required for a QMS software to be compliant with FDA and ISO 13485 regulations. For any organization, eSignature makes sure only authorized users approve documents or records.

BPA has developed an innovative eSignature component to be used with our apps on any device, directly within SharePoint and Teams.

eSignatures can be used internally to sign compliance documents, technical files, investigate incidents, or replace any paper signature. It can also be used with external suppliers to sign nonconformities or any other usage.

In this video we demonstrate how easy you can sign a compliance document, and a nonconformity form with multi factor authentication.

eSignatures can be added on any form by a simple drag and drop and protect document content or selected attributes.

BPA eSignature component gives the extra security needed when approving items in compliance with medical regulations. It makes SharePoint a more secure platform when signing documents or records, with no need to manage complex item-level permissions. It’s perfectly integrated with Microsoft 365 and multi factor authentication.

BPA eSignature is available at no additional cost with our modern Quality-Medical-CRM apps on Microsoft 365.

How BPA’s Software Meets IATF 16949 Requirements for Automotive Industries

IATF 16949:2016 is an independent QMS standard, dedicated to the automotive sector, that is fully aligned with the requirements of ISO 9001:2015.

IATF 16949 includes specific requirements and core tools from the automotive industry, like:

  • Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP)
  • Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)

APQP ensures the voice of the customer is clearly understood, translated into requirements, technical specifications and special characteristics. APQP is typically used when introducing a new product, process or qualifying, evaluating new suppliers. From design to production, the APQP tracking sheet makes sure you go through each step and meet all needed requirements.

APQP

Screen Capture of BPA Quality & Risk Management, APQP example.

BPA’s software brings simple collaborative tools to track APQP projects with their milestones, related question sets, compliance and documents. Workflow rules ensure the right persons are automatically alerted to plan actions or mitigate risks.

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a structured approach to discovering potential failures that may exist within the design of a product or process. Discovering a failure early in product development using FMEA improves the product design and lowers cost. Important FMEA steps are to identify failure modes and assess their severity, identify causes and probability of occurrence, set up preventive process controls (detection). As a result, FMEA highlights Risk Priority Numbers (RPN) for each identified failure mode. Actions will be taken to mitigate high risks.

FMEA

FMEA is a collaborative process that can be easily tracked with BPA’s software, replacing inefficient spreadsheets.

BPA Quality & Risk Management is leveraged by the benefits of Microsoft Office 365 technologies.
