Internal audits, external audits and supplier audits
eControl is intended to be used for external audits where your own organisation is audited by external auditors. eControl also helps with internal checks and supplier audits.
Planning, implementation and follow-up
eControl facilitates the audit process in all its phases. Each audit passes through various stages - from planning, preparation and implementation to follow-up, culminating in its completion. eControl makes arrangements easier and ensures shortcomings are dealt with.
Documents, measures - if required, including Root Cause Analysis - as well as resources and object links - may be recorded in accordance with the system standard for each step of an audit.
A tool for all departments
An individual authorisation concept ensures that various divisions of a company can use the audit module independently of each other. Audits can include any form of audit including an audit of processes, documents or a compliance audit.
Audit catalogues make it easier to conduct standardised audits. Such catalogues can be created by the customer for its own standard audits (e.g. tank audit, safety check, etc.).
Manufacturers have already provided audit catalogues for the key ICAO regulations (e.g. Annex 14), EASA (e.g. (EU) Regulation 139/2014, FAA (e.g. 14 CFR Part 139), Transport Canada (e.g. TP312) IATA (e.g. ISAGO) and of various other organisations.
An update service is offered for these audit catalogues.
Different audit catalogues and audits can be put together in their entirety or in parts to form new catalogues or audits quickly and conveniently.
Content-based storage of test points
eControl has a fully automatic content-related test point storage facility. eControl can compare audits which are based on different versions of the same regulations. This enables valuable history of shortcomings that have already been observed to be retrieved even if the contents of regulations are updated. This content-based storage can also be used if audits with a different structure have to be analysed on a comparative basis.
When processing a test point the auditor will be able to see immediately whether and which discrepancies were identified in respect of that test point in the past.
