- Standardization of operational processes and documents through document management functions.
Advantages of Introduction
- Highly customizable for individual researchers.
- Best suited for creative research where changing workflows and unstructured data are the norm.
- Customizable templates by researchers to optimize experimental methods.
- Templates standardize the different note-taking styles of different researchers.
- Compliant with various regulations, so it can be used in a strictly regulated environment.
Sharing information with inspection laboratories
- Quality parameters
- Resource information
- Operational Procedures
Example of use in an inspection laboratory (quality control)
Utilized for test instructions, SOP display, inspection result input, equipment, and report generation.
- Project management functions are linked with inspection item information. Efficient scheduling of human, material, and other research resources.
- Document management functions are used to manage SOPs and create standard documents.
- Documents created in the research department are shared through the document management function and used as procedure manuals.
- Review procedures when deviations occur, share them with research departments, and reoptimize procedures.
- Strengthen collaboration and communication among departments by sharing document management systems.
- Share data and documents between departments and seamlessly execute workflows between departments.
