QMS For Manufacturers
Hello Fellow Formulators & Friends,
I am currently comparing different QMS (Quality Management Systems) for Cosmetic Manufacturing. I am so used to the QMS systems of the Biotech and Pharma industry that when I look for options for cosmetics I am not impressed. They often lack key things, like a LIMS (laboratory integration… think sample retain management or something else that’s super convenient).
I was recommended Formulator, however this to me is also lacking. I also do not like that everything is an addition despite all being relevant and necessary. For example, if you wish to use it monitor ingredients for scale-up, you now how to add the manufacturing ingredient (whatever its called) program. If you wish to add quality control testing, bam another program with fee. If you are developing a formula, you would think scale-up would be included. Otherwise what is the advantage to the program when Excel can do it with a few clicks? Do you have any other recommendations? At this point, I may as well continue using my trust, and super cheap, Excel sheets that have never failed.
Thank you in advance for your time & happy formulating <3
