Protect your brand, improve the bottom line with NGC Andromeda Quality Control

Cloud-based Quality Control for Fashion and Apparel Brands & Retailers

NGC’s cloud-based Andromeda® Quality Control solution helps retailers and brands deliver higher quality products with a complete, cloud-based solution that ensures better efficiency, transparency and accuracy. Andromeda Quality Control streamlines the quality process, allowing your QC supervisors to schedule audits based upon factory clusters and delivery schedules, then report on audit results using our Interactive Quality Tablet instead of traditional manual processes. NGC’s Quality Control solution helps you identify problems sooner, reducing the risk of cancellations, chargebacks and returns while protecting your brand’s reputation.

As part of the Andromeda Cloud Platform, you can easily pull the necessary product and PO details needed to conduct the various audits from our Andromeda PLM and Andromeda Supply Chain solutions, or we can integrate with your current solution(s).

You can also streamline your processes by integrating our Andromeda Vendor Compliance module to help onboard, organize, vet and manage your global vendors in a systematic, efficient way, allowing you to make better sourcing decisions, ensure overall compliance, and mitigate any potential risk to your company.

Audit Types

Conduct multiple audit types per PO, including material, in-line, final, measurement & packing accuracy. Take photos of defects to support findings, and conduct master inspections.

Sampling Rules

Support for multiple defect levels (minor, major, critical) and variable AQL levels per defect type. Manage and report on both single and double sampling plans.

Tablet Apps

Perform on-site audits using a tablet, attaching photos to support findings. Tablet can be used offline, with real-time result reports & failure notifications generated once online.

Exceptions Dashboard

Define the conditions that will likely lead to problems or delay, and create alerts when they exist. Alert users via a Dashboard where they can drill into the details causing the situation.

Corrective Action Plans

When failures occur, Corrective Action Plans (CAPs) are automatically generated. Monitor and manage the results as factories make improvements.

Enterprise Integration

Seamlessly integrate with NGC’s cloud-based Andromeda PLM and Supply Chain solutions, or with the PLM and/or Supply Chain solutions that that make up your current system landscape.

Product Testing

Streamline testing for both finished products and materials. Pre-define protocols to know what, where and when to test. Store results, and automatically generate the required GCC. 

Workflow Calendars

Support workflow and critical path management with calendars. Set up milestones to track your progress, and predict if an item will run late due to unexpected delays, all in real-time.
