Software for Statistical Process Control
Nowadays, Industry has entered a new era, 4.0, in which operation is driven by IoT (Internet of Things). In order to keep up with that era, Hexagon has now announced Q-DAS which will support the system and manage the quality of product and also the quality of the equipment themselves. Reliable quality data is a vital tool for process evaluation and control. Q-DAS provides the customized Statistical Software for all types of industries, applications, plants, and requirements.
SPC for Process Documentation
Q-DAS O-QIS provides classical statistical process control (SPC) with appealing charts Appealing charts (e.g. quality control chart, value chart, bar chart, etc.) visualize the recorded measured values and help users to evaluate them for the respective purpose.
The software is also able to transfer data directly from portable measuring equipment, multipoint measuring instruments, measuring devices, and multiplexers via RS232 or USB interface. Users can adjust the software according to their requirements – from a configuration that is easy to use to any individually defined measurement process control.
Online Alarm Monitoring Creates Transparency
Recording a mass of data in a short time with real-time visualization and alarm monitoring. Whether you need to show individuals, trend charts of measured values or a compact status indication of each production facility, Q-DAS offers the graphics and tables you need.
Real-Time Visualisation for Smart Decisions
The visualization of measurements of any measurement devices, e.g. measurements from coordinate measuring machines or complex measuring devices, focuses on characteristics causing problems; the software highlights them. This approach makes it easy to identify the weak points of a process. A well-structured graphical user interface with simple buttons wins high acceptance among users.
Alert Function Raises Confidence
In order to minimize the risk of overlooking deviations from target specifications, Q-DAS immediately checks whether measured values meet individual alarm conditions. There are different ways to inform selected users of an alarm that has occurred. The software shows the characteristics causing the alarm and is also able to generate and send reports automatically (printout, PDF, E-Mail, or SMS).
Reports provide users with a concise and appealing overview of statistics and graphics. These reports frequently document measurement process capability. They can be stored as PDF files or sent as an email attachment. Reports used as graphic files are easy to integrate into third-party systems.
