Inventory Quarantine is a very unique
set of management tools designed to facilitate
traceability, shelf life and possible
hazardous stocking conditions for selected
types of inventory. This unique feature
permits both physical isolation and accountability,
for materials that due to their nature,
need highly restricted access and availability
to both process and distribution.
When materials are
quarantined, their access to production
are controlled under very disciplined
procedures to assure proper handling,
compliance and consumption. Where shelf
life is an issue, Inventory Quarantine
provides lifecycle information assuring
that no improper consumption of the part
is in violation of it's documented shelf
life and availability.
The problem of controlling
potentially hazardous materials has become
a major governmental and compliance problem
for many companies. The physical protection
by isolating selected items assures the
working environment is safe for employees
and violation free.
Inventory Quarantine assures the following:
- That only the proper parts and production
supplies are available and consumed
in accordance with specified regulations
- That the workplace always complies
with hazardous waste and governmental
regulations for safety.
- Assures that where shelf life considerations
control the consumption of selected
materials, that no violations or improper
inventory transactions are permitted.
- That Quality Assurance is fully informed
and involved with the control and management
of selected inventories including inspection,
documentation and use in production.
