Innovators at NASA's Johnson Space Center have developed a software solution for recording, tracking, and reporting results of tasks associated with the identification of administrative non-conformances that require action to correct or prevent. The Integrated Corrective/Preventive Action Tracking System (ICATS) is a Web-based application that includes workflow features to manage corrective or preventive actions, root cause analyses, planned actions, estimated completion dates, records of implementation, effectiveness verifications, and task closures.


  • Integrated: Combines features of separate tracking systems and provides a single source of corrective and preventive action tasks and plans
  • Fast: Offers immediate access to data across numerous enterprise departments and work areas
  • Measureable: Provides relevant metrics to more effectively manage the implementation of corrective and preventive actions
  • Proactive: Includes email notification features to improve the efficiency of implementing and managing corrective and preventive actions
  • Comprehensive: Offers the ability to recognize and act on potential systemic issues across an enterprise


  • Organizations seeking a comprehensive solution to efficiently manage corrective and preventive actions across their enterprise
