Managing change controls at direct and indirect material suppliers is often a manual process across multiple functions within the pharmaceutical manufacturer. The lack of visibility into the status of change controls or a standardized view of change control status across suppliers can create supply risk.
TraceLink’s Change Management application standardizes direct and indirect supplier change control processes and maintains them in a single repository. Suppliers can submit changes, change documentation, and notify all stakeholders about the changes. This application enables a standard process to communicate acknowledge and acceptance of a change or requests for additional information.
With Change Management you can:
- Capture, assign, assess, and notify users about changes
- Use one standard repository and tool through which suppliers can submit changes and change documentation
- Establish a standard process to communicate acknowledgement, acceptance, approval or rejections of changes
