Inspection Equipment Management

More than calibration and administration: iqs PMV supervises product quality with the correct inspection equipment.

Quick and comprehensive

iqs Inspection Equipment Management (PMV) gives secure information on the status, location and choice of inspection equipment whilst simultaneously enabling the measuring instruments to be checked and inspected. This optimizes resources as service and maintenance planning of the inspection equipment can take place efficiently and in a continuous way.

Inspection equipment history

The software makes available a complete history of each item of inspection equipment together with any corresponding documentation that has been recorded such as complaints, location changes, repairs or inspections. Furthermore any company specific events can be individually added.

Inspection equipment capacity/MSA

The inspection equipment capability is a building block for determining inspection equipment capacity. This enables you to determine the cg and cgk indices, complete dispersion ranges (with or without user input), conduct stability inspection and examine the inspection capacity process.

Inspection planning wizard

The inspection order wizard plans inspection orders, checks that all necessary equipment will be available on the due date, sends inspection requests by email and automatically reminds about overdue inspection equipment as well as taking on several other functions. In order to use similarities in inspection planning, the PMV module uses document inheritance, which was developed by iqs. Corresponding standards can be added and allocated to every item of inspection planning.

Order management

An order list displays inspection orders that are either open or unprocessed. The order list differentiates between in-house test centers and external calibration firms. Delivery note issue for calibration of inspection equipment by accredited firms is supported.
