Announcement of the GPM extension to the LYONS Quality Audit Tracking System (LQATS) has been met with much excitement and interest. Executives may observe enterprise-wide, global real-time quality performance at each of their manufacturing sites. Performance is graphically viewed on a single screen and problem sites are easily flagged. Some managers have asked, "Why create reports? We have GPM". The new functionality comes included in the LQATS system.
