The Lean Machine

The Lean Machine is a quality management software for manufacturing and service industries. The platform integrates multiple processes such as document control, employee training, corrective action/preventative action (CAPA), non-conformance reporting, internal audits, and customer complaints into a single system that follows the principles of lean manufacturing. The software also includes functions like Integrated Risk Management (IRM) and an early warning system to help prevent problems before they occur by identifying trends in operational data. The Lean Machine can be used for compliance with industry standards like ISO 9001 or FDA regulations.
