Corrective Actions/Preventive Actions

Definition

Corrective Actions

These are actions that are deemed necessary to eliminate the cause of errors that were determined during the audit and to prevent the recursion of these errors. The corrective actions to be executed must be appropriate to the effects that the particular error has on the product.

Preventive Actions

These are actions that are deemed necessary to eliminate the causes of possible errors before they occur. The preventive actions to be executed must be appropriate to the effects that the possible error could have on the product.

    Note Note

    You can use a Business Add-In to set up the system so that you can create objects, such as a quality notification for a corrective action, directly from the audit management transaction. The objects created are displayed below the corrective action in the tree.

    For more information, see the Implementation Guide for Audit Management.
