SAP Quality Issue Resolution (SAP QIR)

Deviation management is an important part of quality management. It includes all steps necessary to analyse possible defects, identify and document problems and mitigate, resolve or prevent them.

The new SAP solution “SAP Quality Issue Resolution” offers functions for the collaborative analysis and resolution of quality issues. It enables you to process complaints with your external suppliers as well as customers and also helps you within your company to resolve supplier and customer complaints with the help of standardised problem-solving methods such as 8D and, in future, CAPA.

With SAP Quality Issue Resolution, you can identify the root causes of problems, take action based on predefined steps to avoid such problems in the future, and document the problem resolution process.

Watch this SAP video for an introduction to SAP Quality Issue Resolution: a platform for collaboration between you, your suppliers and customers to help resolve and prevent quality issues. The solution uses proven methodologies such as 8D and 5 Whys for structured and effective issue resolution.

Advantages of SAP QIR

Continuous maintenance and improvement of quality

Based on the CAPA or 8D methodology, it guides the solution through the individual steps of the problem-solving process and provides troubleshooting functions.

Continuous processes through integration of quality management

Information such as material number, defect details, supplier or customer is automatically transferred from the quality notification to the problem-solving document.

Predefined process steps for problem solving

Quality managers can use the predefined process steps to initiate immediate actions, identify the causes of quality problems and define corrective and preventive actions.

Hub for collaboration in solving quality problems

Addressing quality issues requires a structured and transparent approach. With SAP Quality Issue Resolution, you can work together with external and internal stakeholders on problem-solving processes with predefined process steps.
