Data is king
These days, data is vital to our lives and we all rely on different types of data every day. A manufacturing plant is no different.
As referenced in a past blog post, Atlas Copco’s QA Supervisor is the go-to software for Quality data management. How can QA Supervisor can help manage quality data?
On the web
First, QA Supervisor is a web-based software. This means that to access its data, the user does not need to install any software on our computer. QA Supervisor will reside on a server that can be accessed from any computer in the plant network.
Essentially, what this means that whenever a computer is replaced, the user doesn’t have to install and license QA Supervisor on the new computer. Additionally, every time a new version is released, the user will not have to update every single computer used to access QA Supervisor. Instead, just the user can simply access the server that is hosting QA Supervisor to make any updates.
This means QA Supervisor can be used to program inspection and collect data regardless of the nature of the inspection, whether that be
- Tool checks,
- Joint checks
- Dimensional checks
- Or visual checks.
Moreover, the benefits of the QA Supervisor are wide-ranging. Top benefits of the tool include:
- Continuous quality processes improvement
- Accessible from any device without any software installation cost
- Immediate access to relevant data without losing time
- Real-time alerts
- Reduced quality costs
Looking out for the Quality Manager
This simplifies a quality manager’s work by having a single repository to manage all the due inspection, routes, results, traces and certificates.
Finally, with the integration with ToolsNet 8, quality operators can schedule their test automatically by using the number of cycles a tool has actually done. Moreover, a report that combines production data from ToolsNet 8 with QA Supervisor data can help identify patterns and act quickly to prevent quality defects.
