Solving your manufacturing issues through quality visibility
Automate inspection data collection across your organization
QDM WEB can monitor all of your inspection locations in multiple plants pulling and processing inspection data into your central database. As part of the data processing, QDM can be set to send automated alerts based on specified criteria. The data flow and validation of information can be managed and monitored from one interface, making set up and system management simple. External supplier interfaces can also be configured to connect suppliers directly to the system, allowing one or two-way communication and data sharing.
Use templates that incorporate CAD models to effectively communicate quality and issues, as well as dimensional and attribute information.
OEM's need customizable reports for each of their teams. Quality engineers need access to different information, and need to see the same information, differently than supervisors or plant managers. QDM Templates make it easy to quickly create multiple reports from the same data set customized for the user base. These templates provide dimensional information with configurable SPC reporting formats, and allow users to set alerts based on any part of the template, customized for each product.
Roll up individual component reports to higher levels for summary dashboards; part-level to sub-system to program-level to plant-level statistics and metrics.
The system automatically rolls up quality metrics based on the inspection data received and processed, updating visual dashboards in real-time. Users can intuitively drill down using the dashboard from company level to an individual part level based on any selected SPC metric.
QDM Systems monitor production for critical metrics and trends then send alerts and messages to the user community.
QDM Alerts can be set up as a watch list, generating messages to subscribed users. These alerts and lists are configurable-able to individual user preferences, letting specific users determine what they want to watch for and which products to monitor. The system then monitors incoming data in real-time utilizing custom triggers set to watch for trends towards specification limits or any specified statistic to alert users before parts are manufactured out-of-specification.
Automatically generate and publish SPC reports to the user community.
The QDM system generates reports regularly, making them available to users with one-click access. This makes information readily available as needed, and can greatly enhance the efficiency of quality teams and users. Additional custom reports can be set to auto-generate at any specified time setting to be available for users. Users can pull these reports regardless of location, gaining access via smartphone, laptop, tablet, or workstation.
Use a structured mapping of the entire global organization’s quality data to drill down to specific data in one easy to navigate web-based interface.
The data drill down can be mapped to provide a quick and intuitive method of finding any specific data set. This method also provides a global overview of quality metrics. All users of this system have access to it through configurable profile preferences for local language and accessibility. Administrators can open access, or close it, to each user individually to help users access only the information they need. Users have the option to customize their interface as well for email alerts, date formats and other personalized settings.
QDM solves many common issues facing manufacturers today
As a maturation engineer, I used [QDM] to review data for assembly level and used it mature our quality, looking at trend charts, looking at performance over time. So predominantly using run charts and exporting the data into other types of software, such as Minitab. The greatest advantage of using the QDM software is that it is all in one place, whether it is single panel data, assembly level data, supplier data, I just have to go into the one web software and its all there at my finger tips in a couple of clicks.
