CloudFactory Manufacturing Execution Systems based upon Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Manufacturing Edition reduces rework and returns by enabling you to track information that pertains to quality. Whether you need to collect information for audits, comply with 3rd party regulations, track batch information, check that shipments are prepared correctly or ensure parts are produced within specification,

When it comes to monitoring quality, the task can be assigned to an employee, asset or process. In addition to the quality information you choose to collect, pass/fail parameters can be configured to confirm acceptance or indicate a problem that needs to be resolved.


"Quality Control in Manufacturing" may be defined as a process that ensures customers receive products devoid of defects and that also meet their needs. The problem is, when approached incorrectly, this process can put consumers at risk.

But how?

Lets consider the defect discovered in Takata airbags, which resulted in the largest automotive recall in history – a recall that included almost 69 million airbag inflators and threatened to cost billions of dollars. This recall started in 2018 and still in recent time, December 2021, Toyota was recalling cars as part of the global recall. But major recalls like these can looked to be prevented through effective quality control in manufacturing.

SPC Manufacturing

Some common tools used to support quality control in the manufacturing sector include:

  • Statistical Process Control (SPC) – These monitors and controls quality by tracking production metrics and helps quality managers identify and solve problems before products leave the facility.
  • Six Sigma – This uses five key principles to ensure products meet customers’ needs while exuding zero defects.

Because we raise “tracking,” let’s now introduce “Tracking Quality” within the manufacturing process for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Manufacturing.

How does Quality Tracking benefit Manufacturing?

We totally understand that in the manufacturing world, customers expect and demand high-quality products. When bringing quality tracking processes into the mix, you can rest assured knowing your operations will ultimately:

  • Increase customer loyalty
  • Contribute to the overall positive branding of your product
  • Improve safety
  • Reduce liability risks
  • Maintain or even improve your market position
  • Yield repeat business
  • Reward you with new customers from referrals…and isn’t that what it’s all about?


It’s a known aspect that manufacturers who put in place quality control and tracking processes are far less likely to experience recalls on their products, or place customers at risk from poorly-made items. And, don’t forget: The costs associated with these recalls can indeed be steep and think about the Takata airbag recall we mentioned....!
