The Astras module collaboration allows you to model typical workflows between internal users and contact partners of your suppliers. Astras ensures that both internal activities in your purchasing organization as well as external communication with your suppliers are systematic, regulated and transparent. Whether in quality management or in supplier development-the Astras activities give you the opportunity to optimally implement your process standards: structured, central and documented.

Collaboration with suppliers-measures, activities, workflows

Das Astras module collaboration is the new home for all processes where you exchange information about forms or questionnaires from external partners and/or within your purchasing organization.

examples of activities in Astras: complaints processes, e.g. 8D reports, QVP/APQPand PPAP processes can be initiated, implemented, tracked and evaluated ideally in the context of Astras activities. Astras supports the management of deadlines, responsibilities and the automated validation and evaluation of responses. In addition to the tool-based process, you benefit from a complete documentation of all measures. Workflows for first-sample inspection reports (Isir), test certificates, supplier (long-term) declarationsN and other material master-specific data and documents can also be displayed ideally via the module activities.

Each activity is precisely defined by your workflow – this ensures that every necessary step in the process is passed through. The workflow is additionally supported by e-mails – for example, there is an e-mail when creating activities, when changing (respectively to the next responsible person and the owner) as well as daily status reports.

Typical, recurring activities are stored in the Astras Templatebibliothek and are therefore available throughout your organization.

Applications:

  • Quality Management processes
  • Supplier audits
  • Material-specific information

Astras activities are used to collect data and are also a reporting form for tracking progress. The individual steps of the process can only be completed when the appropriate information is submitted and the activity is also used as an action plan that shows the remaining steps.

 

Use case Quality Management

In quality management, Astras offers you practical and process-supporting functions in order to carry out quality processes efficiently, in a structured and flexible manner, thus fulfilling the requirements of relevant standards.

  • Illustration of e.g. 8D, APQP and PPAP processes
  • Design of individual measures and processes (e.g. based on the Six Sigma improvement process)
  • Time Management with reminder function
  • Structured data storage for supplier audits

The workflow defines all possible statuses of the Action (Workflow node) and controls which persons or roles at which time the action is to be processed. Workflow roles define the persons involved and their authorizations. Predefined form sheets, so-called templates, secure the reliable collection of all information in every step of the workflow. Each activity is precisely defined by your workflow – this ensures that every necessary step in the process is passed through.

The workflow is additionally supported by e-mails – for example, there is an e-mail when creating activities, when changing (respectively to the next responsible person and the owner) as well as daily status reports. Workflow
