Managing supplier corrective and preventative actions (CAPAs) can be challenging and time consuming.

They require constant monitoring, follow-up, and review from several different stakeholders inside and outside your organization. Our proven process for taking supplier CAPAs from acknowledgement to evidence of effective closure has proven to be faster and less expensive than using precious in-house resources.

We manage corrective actions for numerous Fortune 500 companies around the world. Whether you provide TSG with pre-defined corrective actions or combine your corrective actions with our managed audit services, we will partner with your suppliers to ensure corrective actions are closed and measured for effectiveness.

TSG’s automated system, STEPQ, alerts you when action is required.

Using STEPQ, you have real-time CAPA data to trend your supplier performance.

Get your suppliers up to speed without slowing you down.

Our Supplier Remediation helps you to develop suppliers to sustain your minimum level of acceptable requirements or regulatory standards. This is achieved through an initial assessment of selected suppliers, benchmarked to your custom needs or best practice standards, and subsequently remediating the observations and non-conformances discovered with close technical support.

Elevate Your Supply Base. Fast Track Your CAPA Process.

Our global team of quality professionals works hand-in-hand in a close partnership with you and your suppliers to establish and work towards manageable, achievable goals. Our team helps your suppliers implement systems that will improve and/or remediate systemic gaps in their Quality and Manufacturing Systems. Our tried-and-true process has helped clients across multiple industries achieve a stronger and more reliable supply base, and in the process it has helped their suppliers mature their own quality and manufacturing systems to become more sustainable partners.

Offering comprehensive supplier review without having to be on-site, TSGs Remote Surveillance Assessment tool combines the qualitative aspects of secure, objective evidence gathering with the quantitative aspects of automated, tracked and scored supplier evaluation criteria.

Once an  program is underway, we manage all aspects of data collection and review with your chosen suppliers. We review supplier responses and either accept or request more information where needed. When supplier responses require more information, we work with them to provide a complete picture. RSAs are also scalable, from the acquisition and checking of basic supplier details, to a true remote assessment by a certified lead auditor. Part of the scoping process is to work with you to determine the right level of depth and oversight required.

RSAs, like all TSG-managed events, are available through our STEPQ website and can trigger corrective action (CAPA) and other related events– all of which can be viewed and controlled through your real-time activity dashboard or scheduled email alerts.

For Suppliers:

Easy user interface helps suppliers quickly complete their information. When editing, suppliers see sections, position, and requirements for each section.

If a supplier user attempts to submit an incomplete checklist, a reminder message appears, requesting a complete checklist.

For Clients:

Authorized users can check the status of the program in real-time. Where action is required, notifications will also be sent automatically via email.

When viewing the checklist, dynamic graphs can highlight overall results at a glance.

The supplier responses, objective evidence, score, and status are shown.

Any subsequent action (like a corrective action) appears as a ‘connected’ event, and follows its own process to closure (including separate supplier response).
