FRACAS Software – What & Why
Answering the key questions about FRACAS software tools
FRACAS is an acronym for Failure, Reporting, Analysis and Corrective Action System. FRACAS falls under the umbrella of corrective action processes, which are also sometimes referred to as CA (corrective action) systems or CAPA (corrective and preventive action) systems.
FRACAS is a management system for handling issues that arise with products or processes. When implemented, FRACAS provides a closed-loop process for effectively managing any type of failure, complaint, incident, issue, problem, or concern. The advantage of FRACAS is that it ensures that as incidents arise, they are captured, and subsequently tracked until they have been properly addressed.
Overall, FRACAS and CAPA systems provide a way to improve reliability, quality, operation, and safety by systematically managing issues across your organization.
The core of FRACAS software tools, and any corrective and preventive action (CAPA) software, is trackable process control for issue management. A well-established FRACAS or CAPA process is a central component in an organization’s goal to meet and exceed their reliability, quality, and continuous improvement objectives. These goals are more readily met with FRACAS software, like that from Relyence, that enables you to track and manage issues with a powerful set of capabilities for effective and efficient process control. Relyence software offers a wide range of features including built-in issue escalation, customizable workflow, approval process control, automated notifications, built-in failure and repair metrics, custom Formulas, the innovative Failure Direct Connect, and much more.
With the right FRACAS software tool in hand, your ability to effectively monitor the health of your system is expertly handled. Your compliance requirements can be met, your team can always be kept apprised of crucial tasks to be completed, and managers can gain important insight into the entire corrective action process.
Every organization performs some type of issue management. Even if you’re just recording issues on a series of Post-It notes, you’re engaging in the tracking and management of issues that arise! Unfortunately, many organizations approach incident management in a very manual way – paper, email, meetings, and poorly controlled documents and Excel spreadsheets.
With today’s technological advances, software to manage the corrective and preventive action process is available to ensure the process is well-controlled, organized, and efficient.
One of the most critical features to look for in a FRACAS tool is adaptability. The FRACAS process varies widely across organizations, so having a tool that is customizable to your process is key. Plus, processes evolve and change over time, so your tool must be able to handle on-the-fly updates.
Additionally, you want a tool that encompasses the capabilities required for tracking and reporting: built-in escalation of issues, workflow features, an approval process, audit tracking, and automated team notifications. Some nice-to-have features include the ability to define your own calculations for metrics-based tracking, support for failure statistics (such as field-based failure rates and trend scores that indicate whether your process is degrading or improving over time), and unique offerings such as Failure Direct Connect.
All FRACAS processes are team centered. So, look for a tool that meet the needs of today’s mobile, virtual workforce: browser-based accessibility, support for mobile devices, and platform independence. An overview-level dashboard can also be helpful, especially for an at-a-glance view of important metrics, and the ability for managers to have insight into crucial activities.
Lastly, if your process must be kept in compliance with a particular standard, make sure the tool you choose supports the standard or standards you require.
