Smart-Phone Apps Support the PPAP Process

Sunday, April 1, 2012

Guardian Business Solutions, Inc., Brookfield, WI, has released the first two apps in its Smartphone/ Tablet library of Mobilize-IT Enterprise apps. First is the Quality Inspection Capture app (shown), which supports PPAP reporting by capturing quality and inspection data. Initial inspection requirements are set up in a web app on the Mobilize-IT middleware/app server and merged with existing part and operation data from an ERP system. The information is downloaded into the app to retrieve and record the inspection information. Completed transactions then are sent back to the middleware server and stored in a database for PPAP reporting.

Next is a Cycle Count app that supports the cycle-count function of an ERP system. It allows the user to access the inventory-item count tag to verify the existing item information and to record the current count. Completed cycle-count information is sent back to the middleware server and stored in the database for importing into an ERP system.

Both new apps are designed for devices with an Android operating system; an iOS version is coming soon.
