Quality does not start at the receiving dock and end at the shipping dock. The focus on the supply chain demands that the quality department be involved from

lims  resource scheduling, and more. LIMS providers typically supply integration tools to enable their products to integrate with ERP, manufacturing execution systems (MES), and other plant level systems. In general, although my software supplier friends may not agree, the ERP products offer greater integration into the supply chain, but less laboratory-specific functionality, while the LIMS products offer greater functionality to improve product quality and less integration.

Plant systems and corporate systems must be complementary and leverage each other to provide their maximum value.
