“We are really delighted, that this milestone of quality control is now just ahead of the final release,” emphasizes Jochen Layer, CEO of K2D-KeyToData GmbH. The new cloud-based version of the shop-floor quality system was intensively tested by 60 small and large companies.
“For those who want shorter and more flexible production cycles, there are few alternatives than using this modern tool from InspectionXpert Corporation. Finally, it is possible with this highlight, to reduce time and cost of production in a striking manner,” Layer says. – “The goal of InspectionXpert Corp. was to create an innovative, cross-platform-software for PC and tablet, optimized for shop floor, which combines all the essential areas of quality control and optimization of quality processes. Naturally this software had to be Web-based.”
A powerful combination: InspectionXpert OnDemand and the software Innovation QualityXpert
A combination of the software solutions InspectionXpert OnDemand and the brand-new QualityXpert enables companies to work paperless from inspection drawing to the inspection report and process analytics. Processes are continuously optimized allowing the highest manufacturing quality to be reached. “Automating the creation of ballooned drawings and inspection plans become self-evident,” says Layer. InspectionXpert OnDemand streamlines the generation of these from PDF drawings as well as native 2D & 3D CAD files: “The created inspection plans can then be published seamlessly to QualityXpert”.
QualityXpert in Detail
QualityXpert is a revolutionary web-based in-process inspection software that can be used on PCs and tablets for powerful and fast quality inspections. Inspection planners, field service organizations, machine operators, quality and production managers can create inspection plans, capture measurements and report results in real time. Improved visibility enables more effective monitoring of critical manufacturing processes over time and improves quality decisions based on accurate and timely empirical data. The key focus of QualityXpert development is the essential tools for real time manufacturing quality management;
- Process flow diagram, PFD, pre-populated from inspection characteristics
- Process failure mode effects analysis, PFMEA pre-populated from PFD & inspection characteristics
- Control plan, CP, pre-populated from PFMEA, PFD & inspection characteristics
QualityXpert establishes traceability; any time a part’s measurement data is saved, the operator’s name, plus the date and time are captured. Additionally, when a part is measured as a nonconformance a configurable drop down appears which includes the option to set the criteria for mandatory entries such as assignable cause, comment and corrective action.
These capabilities will help save time, reduce errors and ensure tighter version control. Reducing costs, including labor, rework, scrap and escapements, and speed production.
