The Quality Information Network (QIN) database is the data repository for all IBM supplier audit activities. It includes technical and business system information related to qualification, risk management, and quality / performance audits. Suppliers have the capability of seeing their audit information over the web. They are able to edit their CARs (corrective action requests) including detailing their containment action, root cause analysis, and corrective actions taken to fix audit findings.
QIN Key features:
- Eliminates redundant / unnecessary audits.
- Reduced travel due to reduction in audits as well as increase in local auditor use.
- Increases efficiency
