In order to guarantee product quality, it may be necessary to carry out tests on the entire value added chain – from goods received for the different production steps right up to production exit or goods dispatched. The iqs PP/CP control and inspection planning module facilitates the creation of control and inspection reports for both incoming and outgoing goodsas well as intermediate tests and SPC.
Drawing integration within all modules substantially accelerates the process of creating inspection reports. All necessary inspection plan positions will be then directly transferred from the CAD data into the inspection plan. The transfer of characteristics from scanned drawings with the help of optical character recognition (OCR). Inspection plan outlines must neither be separately created nor maintained.
iqs’ inheritance technique simplifies the integration of other building blocks from the product family into the inspection report status.
Through a close link between iqs PP/CP and iqs FMEA module, each individual inspection will be fully justified. Unnecessary inspections are systematically identified and eliminated thereby concentrating inspection efforts on real requirements resulting in a clear reduction in both costs as well as time savings. Remaining inspections are justifiable both internally or for customers at any time.
All inspection plans are versioned and completed – an advantage for audits and customer visits. At the press of a button the iqs PP/CP can generate a detailed inspection plan for each product.
