Solving your manufacturing issues through quality visibility
Automate data collection and processing
SPC Monitoring real-time quality
Satellite Station monitors can be set up throughout the plant with each station showing one or multiple graphical SPC reports. These satellite station interfaces are dynamic and interactive where a user can click on and drill down to any areas of concern to analyze the underlying data. Satellite Stations are helpful for providing visual and audio alerts on the plant floor when parts begin to trend out of spec.
Set statistical criteria for automated alerts
The system can be customized for each machined part with pass/fail criteria for individual critical dimensions that will in turn be used for generating automatic alerts as parts are measured. The alerts can be sent to users who have subscribed to the corresponding part data. These alerts take the form of audio alerts in the plant, visual alerts on the screen as well as emailed and text message alerts as defined by the user.
Use contextual information instead of stacks of charts and text boxes
Graphical reports provide instant context to users, providing important time savings for decision making and action. These reports are made from templates populated by shop floor data and published to the user community. The templates can be set up with powerful configurable SPC charts, and individually configured based on the part and process requirements.
Get a bird's eye view of machine status of the entire plant with clickable drill downs and information
The system provides a web based, anywhere access, to see the entire plant layout with color coded status of each machine and station. These dashboards are interactive which allows the user to drill down on any displayed status and get further information or generate custom reports.
Monitor each machine to verify that data is being collected and submitted according to schedule with time-based alerts
QDM Systems monitor process parameters to guarantee timely data collection is maintained. Each station and process is custom configured based on the preset data collection timetable. This provides a robust process monitoring interface by providing adequate alerts and reminders to the corresponding users to ensure data integrity.
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.
